Te Waka o Delphi – As some people may have already noticed, Lazarus went “1.0″ yesterday. The sensitivity – and some might say serendipity – of the timing of this can hardly have escaped many people, including myself. Since I now intend taking a far greater interest in the alternatives to ...
Malcolm Groves – This book has taken me longer to read than just about any other technology book, but I’ll come back to that. The premise of this book is that machine learning has become an integral part of modern applications, from Amazon’s product recommendations through Google’s pagerank and on ...
Te Waka o Delphi – Two days ago I received a renewal quote for my XE2 Professional SA. The quote included an increase that I wasn’t expecting, having not been made aware of the clause in the SA T’s and C’s that allows for an annual increase of up to 5%, regardless of the fact that the cost for a ...
Andreano Lanusse – As everybody knows Delphi XE3 will be released soon, some previews have been already published and there are some controversial topics around XEe, mostly because of leaks from people that clearly violated the NDA and this is shameful. The biggest controversy is the new license agreement (EULA) that ...
The Programming Works – To repeat the old news, here is an extract from the recent EULA leakage: .. the use of data access technologies for client/server connectivity will no longer be allowed in the Professional edition. This includes both Embarcadero and 3rd party solutions. Professional users may only, legally, access ...
DelphiTools – Somehow I feel this meme is a good match for the latest EULA change plans from Embarcadero for Delphi, which essentially forbid all database or networked uses in Delphi XE3 Pro. It sounds just as ridiculous as the EULA changes themselves. Somebody set up us the bomb This must be close to what what ...
LearnDelphi.TV – Yesterday I was at the Delphi XE3 product launch/demo in Auckland, New Zealand (I flew up from Wellington) and while I was there I harassed a few unsuspecting Delphi users and got them to say what the use Delphi for. The video is about 5 minutes long and you can watch it on YouTube.
Australian Delphi User Group Members – So I was made an Embarcadero MVP about two weeks ago, an achievement I’m quite proud of. It was, I believe, largely for my work on the TIndex and my off-line ADUG activities more so than my blog entries here. Meanwhile everyone’s … Continue reading →
TURBU Tech – If you haven’t seen it yet, there’s a very disturbing post by Jolyon Smith about a leaked NDA document covering a licensing change in Delphi XE3. The upshot is that new licensees will no longer be able to use Delphi Professional for database development unless it’s a local database ...
RemObjects Blogs – Welcome to Wiki This Week, the blog post where we outline some of the recent updates to our documentation Wiki. We’ve had a number of recent updates involving Delphi related wiki articles, so this post is focused just on those. RemObjects SDK Plugins with Hydra – This is a great combination ...
TMS Software Blog – On Saturday September 1 near Utrecht, Blaise Pascal Magazine is organizing the free PasCon: Pascal Conference day. I am very honoured that I was invited to do a session about one of our most exciting recent developments, the TMS Grid for FireMonkey. In the session on the Pascal Conference, I will ...
About Delphi Programming – in Conditional Compilation :: The option to have different build configurations for your Delphi program allows you to have two (or more) different applications (executable files) being produced by the compiler/linker. For this purpose you would use a feature called conditional compilation. The ...
Te Waka o Delphi – I don’t enjoy posting this news. I really don’t. I had hoped that my next post would be a more positive report following the Auckland leg of the XE3 World Tour this morning (and that will come later today). But I feel this news is so important that it has to be mentioned, so here [...]
