Some notes from Monday Night.

Short presentation on Overbytes ICS used as an email sender
in a console application.

  • Email send built to run in a background thread running a message loop.
  • Seems to work ok
  • Oauth works, but is non ideal for common console application use cases
    The refresh token expires and you need/get an outh login screen
  • Better to use App Passwords
  • On a suggestion from Geoff was (next day) able to get it to run in the main thread only.
    OAuth didn’t work in this case.

Sue is Integrating Forum and Membership area
Membership system runs on Delphi
Likely should have additional people to know how the systems work.

Want to add a place to the forum where only symposium attendees can view

Much of stuff on old Adug Website still exists, but isn’t accessible
(but can google for it) Needs to be put back online somewhere.

LOC has a MS SQL server in a container on Linux
And a client also on Linux.
Eventually wants both sides to be on Any OS.

Sue has/had project in SQL Anywhere (Sybase) not T SQL,
many stored procedures, etc. Very hard to migrate off the
current database.
(Common problem)

Database abstraction toolsets, so can swap backend DB easier.
eg. Firedac

Every third or so meeting to be a national meeting. To take the load off
the individual meetings. Could have international speakers at the
national meetings. Europe time is not bad for this.

Geoff has been getting Embarcadero QC to do stuff.
About 50% success rate.
Better when he gives them the code to fix the problem.

Some Potential Future Presentations

Loc will presenting in April on Multiple Handlers attached to Events.

Geoff, MQTT, apparently a wide area publish subscribe system.
Liked by IOT

Sue, the Adug website systems.
Services are in Delphi, using an OO database.

Alex, Presentation on how to do Presentations
Not Death by Powerpoint

Perhaps Malcolm, At one of the National meetings.
He makes good presentations.

Grahame also makes good presentations

Could review some of the topics from speakers from symposiums.
And perhaps get them (or others) to repeat them.
Some old talks were very interesting but not recorded.
