OS/2 Lab Notes« Software Engineering Magazine!
« on: March 21, 2016, 09:15:45 pm »
Hi

I found this on the Google+ Social network: OS/2 Lab Notes« Software Engineering Magazine!

It is not been released yet, but he posted this on Google+:

Quote
Focusing on new projects, the »OS/2 Lab Notes« feature new material, exclusively. Nothing is reprinted. All articles are »fresh from the lab«, although they do rely on a massive base of information derived from practical programming partly dating back many years. Anyway, no reprints, all material is published the first time. This also is true for program sources accompanying the magazine's articles which were formerly closed. They become an open, freely usable source now.

Some sources, especially those of drivers, file systems, etc, date well back to 1992. The latest file from WorkplaceShell programming is from 2014. The older sources mainly serve documentary purposes, anyway. Emphasis is put on the new projects.

We will update the list of articles in preparation so far shortly to give a better insight into the nature of the material the »OS/2 Lab Notes« will offer. 

Just a heads up. I'm not affiliated with this material or his author in any kind of way.

Regards

Hi Martin

Looks like the same guy who started PAF...  and never seemed to finish it.

Thanks.

Thanks.

WPS extension package, portions of it exellent, other portions crap. Some ideas brilliant, other ideas odd for a lack of another word.

In his defence, he did some excellent work with embedded systems a few years back but got unlucky as the company that provided his hardware platform went bust.

Hi    Martin

The PAF website is long gone but if you want to experiment you will need to rummage through these packages  http://www.os2site.com/sw/util/paf/

I tend to agree with Olafurs brief review.

Regards

Pete

Perhaps it would be easier to purchase if they made an epub or pdf of the document.  Hardcopy prints through snail mail are not my favorite thing these days.

Martin - if you get this magazine perhaps you might share a review?

If I get it I will acknowledge that it exists but since it is development related I'm not sure I can write a decent review about it.
Maybe the "1   Preparing a Minimalistic Software Development Environment for OS/2" article will be something I can follow.

Hi Martin

Going over some old PAF related notes I now remember why I would not subscribe to anything more from this person: part way through PAF the project changed and to be involved would - Yes, you guessed it - require a further subscription.

I seem to recall some newsgroup posts about PAF that mentioned an earlier failed subscription project by the same person, Clemens Fischer, but do not recall the details. If I spot anything about it I will post.

I would not be surprised if something similar happened with this magazine - presuming the 1st copy actually arrives.


Regards

Pete
