Memory Pools – O(1) Storage

Happy Tuesday! Hope you had a nice long weekend. Labor Day in Minnesota marks the official summer season. The Minnesota State Fair ended yesterday. It flags the start of public schools and public universities in our state. In general, private schools and universities start a few weeks earlier.

My wife and I did not have too many things to do over the long weekend. Pretty much we did some grocery shopping, walking, and cook meals. We did watch on Amazon Prime an interesting and somewhat older movie. Trumbo was released on DVD in September 15, 2009. The movie provides interesting facts about the Hollywood Blacklist. It describes interesting and dark moments for liberty and freedom in the USA. Hopefully we have learned something and it will not repeat. The black list has nothing to do with African Americans. These events are associated with white people that disagreed with the main stream ideas of the time. The movie starts in 1947, a few years after the WWII ended. When you get a chance spend a couple hours watching this movie.

Coding Conventions – C Programming Language

Last week I spoke with several developers regarding coding conventions for the C programming language. Most of them responded that there is some documentation by the organization, but some of them have never found it or read it. Most of them just look at existing code and try to mimic. The issue is that on most legacy projects, there is code written using different styles. Some organizations use some tools to extract documentation and or code metrics. With time those tools may have changed leaving behind artifacts that are no longer needed. Continue reading “Coding Conventions – C Programming Language”
