Handling iOS application events

The Hacker's Corner – One thing that I’ve wanted to try for quite a while is doing something when an app gets put in the background (user hits the home button for example).

In contrast to the Win32 API, many iOS APIs (not all ...

The Wiert Corner – This is more elaborate English version of a short Dutch message I recently sent to explain the differences between VCL and FMX: Do not regard FMX as a replacement for VCL: they are different kinds of frameworks.

Entity Framwork and how to solve poor performance on large read-only batches

Olaf Monien – ORMs such as Entity Framework are great – as long as you don’t forget that there is quite a complex engine under the shiny hood.
