Melbourne Meeting – April 2020
Monday 20 April at 6 for 6:15pm start.
Because of a microscopic strand of RNA, we met online, instead of meeting at the Shed.
Our meeting included a presentation by Roger Plant showing how to use databases in Lazarus, and a presentation by Aneal Chandra showing us how to create an automatic update feature for MS-Windows.
Roger showed us how Lazarus could be used with SQLite, Firebird, ODBC and MySQL in a very similar way to Delphi. The program could be built for a variety of platforms, even including Raspberry Pi.
And Aneal showed us his approach to self updating applications, and introduced us to the Matrix instant messaging protocol, matrix.org and riot.im
We started with a brief “Public Soap Box” where attendees asked questions, and talked about code.
Venue: The comfort of member’s homes.
