New year, new time: 1900UTC

Happy new year from Steven and Graham! We learned a lot in 2020, and had great fun talking with you all and writing new Amiga software.

Our first stream in 2021 will be this Thursday, January 7th, at 1900UTC. That’s an hour later than our previous start time, and will be the new regular scheduled time. See you on https://dosamigans.tv!

Two Stream Summary

With two streams under our belt, I thought it would be nice to tell everyone what we’ve been up to. We have a project, a rough idea of what we’re doing, and we’re making good progress toward our goal.

Graham and I are both professional software developers with many combined decades of experience under our belts, I’d never developed on an Amiga until this year, and Graham hasn’t done it since it was current. This is a learning experience for both of us, that we get to share with you. And we are even getting great tips and help from our audience during the stream.

In the un-aired (audio issues) pilot episode, we decided that the project we would start with would be a search-based application launcher like Quicksilver on mac, or Launchy on windows. The project is called YakLauncher, thanks to an on-stream suggestion from viewer lazydev, and we decided on the minimal steps we can take to get there.

So far we’ve learned about reading directory contents and file metadata, as well as how filesystem locking works on the Amiga, and we’re moving along toward building a searchable index of executable programs on an Amiga.

The project has been a lot of fun so far, and we’re really enjoying the community that is starting to form around this.

We will be carrying on the show again this Thursday, 24 September, at 18:00 UTC. Please hop on over to the stream page and follow us there so you don’t miss out!
