In part two of my series on the C# programming language, I’m going to explain what a delegate and event is. There are a couple different meanings of a delegate in C#. All of the types (delegate, Action, Func, and Predicate) are delegates because they are function pointers to named and anonymous methods. For the purposes of this blog post, delegate refers to the specific data type and not the broader term.
Over the course of the following weeks, I am going to be publishing a series of blog posts on C#. I’m of course not talking about the musical note but rather the programming language. The purpose of these blog posts is to introduce you to some of the key concepts in C#. I would be stupid to say you’ll become an expert from this because there’s alot of different aspects to C# and it can’t all be explained in just four blog posts.
I have some very good news to share with everyone (especially software developers). An update for Little Software Stats has finally been released. Some probably were starting to wondering about the future of Little Software Stats, as it’s been quite a while since any update has been released (which there hasn’t been any update until now). I’ve been busy with other things and have been meaning to make time to update Little Software, but didn’t until now.
Microsoft Windows has gotten a totally cool makeover in the latest release of version 8. They have tried to make the interface very fluid and have added several apps to their store to make it a whole new experience for the user. Some of the best apps for Microsoft Windows 8 are:
Runtime intelligence software (usually referred to as simply ‘RI’), is a method of gauging, analyzing and collecting data or information on the use of software applications. Different professions, and different people, tend to have an assortment of names for the same ability, so when we say ‘runtime intelligence’ we also mean: software intelligence, software business intelligence, software usage analytics and so forth.
Little Apps has been active since 2008 and our first software program that was released was Little Alarm Clock. Little Apps has since released 6 software programs (Little Registry Cleaner, Little Registry Optimizer, Little Disk Cleaner, Little Privacy Cleaner, Little Software Stats, and Little URL Shortener), as well as a few miscellaneous scripts.
One of the biggest advantages for which consumers now go after the screamingly expensive branded computers is the ability to install many free software programs that utilize a open software license (such as the GNU General Public License, Apache License, MIT License, etc). For example, software like PDF Creator, File Archiver, Sound Editor, Word Processor, Image Editor and Media Player can be downloaded for free and what’s more is that these open source software programs often exceed all quality expectations made by the user.
This post is to bring to light the few people out there that thinks it is okay to take Little Apps’ software and sell it without permission. These people think that it’s totally fine to take somebody elses hard work, change a few things and sell it like they created it. They do not realize the time that goes into making this software nor do they know anything about licensing. All these people seem to care about is how they can profit off of it.
I’d like to take this time to talk about a new project I have started (and no, it’s not a baby). I have been working on it for a while but never had the time to get it to where it is now. The project is called “Little System Cleaner”. What it is (going to be) is Little Registry Cleaner, Little Registry Optimizer, Little Privacy Cleaner, and Little Disk Cleaner all bundled into one program. It is being programmed in C# and uses WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) for the user interface.
Smartphones, tablets, laptops – devices like these are meant to make everyone’s life better. So why not equip them with actual applications that allow for an easier, more efficient, more enjoyable lifestyle? Of course, there are apps that are already a given, like those of social media networks and the ubiquitous Google services. Then there are those that are slightly less famous but just as useful – and even more helpful – for daily living.
