2014 was a strange year for me, mainly because i was working on a product
since 2007 which will not be maintained anymore in 2015.
And i ll probably not touch 4D language anymore in the company i'm working for.
So i m now fully working on products developed with Python.
2014 was also a Mobile IT frustrating year : i didn't see any real concern from most people about privacy since the Snowden's revelation in 2013, i lost any hope in Jolla Oy to continue what Nokia starts with Maemo then MeeGo.
Also seeing that the old Qt promise : "code once, deploy everywhere" vanish, and then BlackBerry dropping Qt5. And there is no real choice between trading one or other (fondamentals software liberties)[https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.en.html] with Android or iOS. But i hope that we will see interesting FirefoxOS Mobile in 2015, there is a good start with the Fx0. So do not expect any Qt development for Blackberry 10 OS currently, i ll not until they officially support Qt5.
And to be honest, i see nice IT related things in 2014 :
- the best SDK i ve see for mobile application development : The Sailfish OS SDK (QtCreator + Tools + targets VM), and the Silica component are nice (except Jolla break their promise to release them as open source).
- Python 3.4 Released
- Firefox OS seems to evolve really well, i like the fx0 specs.
- Many initiatives appear to create easily personnal cloud or syncing
without third party to trust (except code source for private apps) : BTSync, Syncthings, and look like ownCloud become more stable.
I've recently play a bit with Cordova, and also writing a little "passwordmaker.org" like app for Blackberry10 to test a bit Cordova and Onsen UI.
Theorically it should also run on other platform supported by cordova, but i ven t test yet (still waiting my samsung Android tab to test): RulesPasswords.
