Hello internet

Hello Internet (again)

This is my nth attempt to start something like a blog.
The last attempts all ended with me not writing anything. This time I try to force myself to do so every week.

Regarding topics here I think you can expect mainly software development related stuff. Embedded SW development (If this can be called like that nowadays), .NET stuff, Android development and whatever is engaging me currently.

My name is Michael Lamers (also known as Devmil in the internets) and I work for B/S/H/, a Bosch company creating household appliances of different brands. The most known ones are Bosch, Siemens, Neff, Thermador and Gaggenau. My job is defining the SW architecture of the UI software in those appliances. I also work in the UI Framework team providing all those UI projects a basis to create their UI software on.
As a technology stack we use C++ and Qt but even after 10 years of doing C++ I still don’t like that language. It is messy, error prone and leads to very long development cycles (change - build - test - repeat takes really long)
So a hobby of mine is to look out for alternatives that we might be able to use at work.

We recently moved to Linux as operating system which opened a huge door for alternative technology stacks.
At our current stage we are still very limited in hardware resources so currently most of the alternatives have no chance because of the size of the compiled binary + the framework needed to run it.
