I’ve been here all along! Obviously, it’s been many moons since I’ve posted; I intend to remedy that post-haste. I don’t work regularly on RAS anymore, so I had been feeling that my well of ideas for posts had been drying up. But I’ve been involved with a number of new projects, and new projects should mean that there are new things to post about.
I don’t think I’ve written Java code since Swing and Ant were considered the new hotness. I’m now finishing up a Java-based GUI that leverages SWT, and realized that there were a few challenges that I had to pound through the old-fashioned way because, even with the very useful SWT snippets and Javadocs, there was little advice to be found online. So that’s where I’ll start back up: over the next few weeks, I will be posting articles that discuss these challenges and how I solved them.
