The fact it only half works is at least half the point (so to speak), but I’m not sure the ...

Delphi Relax Status Update, July 2011

Want more…Languages

Sip from the Firehose – I recently re-watched "The Lord of the Rings" (LOTR) movie trilogy. Remember the LOTR phrase, "One Ring To Rule Them All"?  Could there ever be "One Programming Language To Rule Them All" (OPLTRTA)?  In the early years of our industry there were loads of new languages appearing each year (History of ...
