Exploding Some Delphi Pricing Myths

Te Waka o Delphi – More than one commenter to recent posts has trotted out the same tired old myths that, in their view, prevent [insert current owner of Delphi here] from being able to compete fairly on the pricing front. Some of these myths are as old as the Enterprise Customer thinking that is the real problem, and ...

TMS XData is coming

TMS Software Blog – A new framework named TMS XData is cooking in the TMS labs. It's hard to define what a framework is with a few words, especially if such framework is modular and many pieces of it can be used separately. Nevertheless, using a very broad definition I could say that TMS XData is a framework that ...

Second Impression of Lazarus/FPC

TPersistent.com – I finally had a few hours to work on hcOPF support for FreePascal which I had started some time ago.  I downloaded the Lazarus 1.0.10 installer and ran it in my development VM.  Then I continued creating new FPC projects, attempting to mirror the Delphi ones.  What I found, is that as a Delphi ...

Monitoring the Monitor

Recently, during our current field test for the next version of RAD Studio*, one of our long-time field-testers posted a reference to this excellent blog post by Eric ...

The One Manual Every Delphi Programmer Should Have!

Cape Cod Gunny Does Delphi – I have always stayed away from using Delphi's DBGrid because it gave me the feeling of being in the cockpit of an airplane without a clue, as to what all the controls are, or even where to look first. I've decided to roll up my sleeves and get over my fear and anxiety of Delphi's ...

Tripping The Class Fantastic: Programs Within Programs

Pascal Game Development – Programs within programs... Sounds a bit like scripting to me! Well, it may do and if you mention scripting on the forums you'll run into a number of suggestions for scripting engines. But what if you don't need the full on complexity of a scripting engine? What if you just want simple things? ...

XE5 World Tour Smaller than XE4?

TPersistent.com – I just checked out the World Tour for XE5, and despite the buzz about iOS development with Android support just around the corner, it appears as if the XE5 tour has fewer stops than the XE4 tour. EMBT is no longer stopping in Calgary, Alberta, Canada (the IT capital of the west) where I reside.  In ...

An Exclusive Club and Reassuringly Expensive

Te Waka o Delphi – In the comments to a previous post there cropped up the complaint that people asking for a realistic Starter Edition are just looking for a cheaper edition of Delphi for themselves. Maybe some of us are, but even so we are – or at least I am – not primarily concerned with the savings to ...
