Looking For Remote Programming Job
« on: April 15, 2020, 09:24:04 am »
Due to the current global situation I am looking for a remote working programming job using either Lazarus / Free Pascal or Delphi ( I own my own licence for Embarcadero Delphi professional edition )
I was wondering if there are any object pascal jobs around at the moment. I am all set up for remote working.

I am based in the UK and English is my native language.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hello!  I am in the same situation.  I got laid off from a Java position, and all of the Java jobs in my area have through-the-roof requirements using newer technology that I don't have experience with (Angular, REST API, Spring Boot, etc.).  I have extensive Delphi and Object Pascal experience, but there are no Delphi jobs to be found anywhere.  I will keep my eye open.  If I see anything I'll let you know, and please do the same for me.  Thanks so much!

What do you consider to be the minimum amount for a small job that has the following parts: WiFi, reads data and saves to CSV file?
Of course, I intend to pay for the service performed, if I can afford to thank "Yes" on the price question's answer.

--- More info ---------------------------------------------
Some time ago I went and bought PIKO's measuring cart which in itself is a nice cart but the software for Windows has some bugs that PIKO has not done anything about, to get rid of the errors.
The main problem with PIKO's software is that the radius of the curves is not saved in the CVS file.
Values for the radius of the curves are displayed live in the program, so I know that the cart transmits the measure value and that the program receives the data, but the CVS save function does not include the real measurement values for the radius of the curves, but it will only be 0 at that position in the CVS file.
PIKO's measuring cart homepage:

This is a model railway wagon in scale HO (1:87).
What is measured is:
* DCC data
* DCC Volts
* Track inclined width - right/left (dosed curve)
* Track inclined length - up/down (hill)
* Track Radius
* Mileage
* Speed


This is what I want the program to do:
Basic function:
* Connects to the measuring cart's WiFi AP
* Reads streamed data from the measuring cart.
* Saves the received raw data as a CSV file locally on the computer/drive.
* Target OS Windows, MaC & Linux
* Open source and publicly downloadable.

Luxury version 1:
* The received data is decoded to human readable values before being saved in the CSV file.
* The program has a GUI that presents received data live in some neat way.

Giant luxury version:
* All measured data is saved as CSV and STL (3D) file.
* GUI has a 3D window where measuring data is presented as 3D graphics.
* A function to be able to virtually "ride around" on the viruella model railway that collected data has created.

Some row data from Wireshark: (140 Mbyte)
OS : Win 10 64bit Home * Win 7 64bit Professional
Lazarus 1.8.4 r57972 FPC 3.0.4 i386-win32-win32/win64
Delphi 7.0 (Build 4.453)
