A breakdown of programming languages used in a week
Published by marco on
In one recent week, I realized I’d been working in many different areas and on many different projects, so I took an inventory.
For one project, I reconfigured a program with Delphi Pascal, using Delphi 7 (it’s a very old, legacy solution) to run on my local machine instead of in a VM that had swollen to 120GB. For that project, I also used SQL on SQL Server, running in a Docker container that I’d configured with YAML. The solution has several products, among which you can switch, so I wrote a Windows Batch program to transfer and back up versions, so you can nicely diff them with SmartGit using Git. In order to diff SQL, I used a tool written in TypeScript, which I extended with a few fixes and tests written with Jest in Visual Studio Code. I updated the documentation in Markdown.
At the same time, I was working on Quino, written in C# for the .NET platform, using Visual Studio on Windows and Jetbrains Rider on MacOS. I also set up a new solution using Quino, which involved editing a bunch of XML project files as well as configuring SQL Server and PostgreSql with Docker. I again used YAML to define pipelines in Azure DevOps.
I wrote blog posts, wiki entries, and issue analyses in Jira Syntax, Markdown, XWiki syntax, and earthli Syntax in both English and German.
