Oh Look, Another Book!

Glooscap Software – "The odd thing about people who had many books was how they always wanted more." -- Patricia A. McKillip  Oh for crying out loud! I just got finished writing about two new Delphi books and someone else throws their hat in the ring. It's like you can't turn around without tripping over another one ...

Software made with Delphi. How do you know?

Glooscap Software – How many times have we heard someone talking about how Delphi was used to make one piece of software or another or that it's being used by some well known company? It happens all the time. Of course, the obvious first question is "How do you know?" I suppose the best way would be to hear it ...

Something something Delphi, something something Hanselman...

Glooscap Software – Ah, the age-old question; Who is still using Delphi? As it turns out, the original answer still applies; Lots of people. There are some great, current examples in Embarcadero's case studies and in their Cool App competition (past winners are here). And there are the well known Good Quality ...

Getting Started with Delphi

Glooscap Software – Delphi celebrated its 22nd anniversary in February and a lot of the developers who make up the Delphi programming community have been using it for a long time. I think that just speaks to their good judgement. At the same time, I'm pleasantly surprised to see people asking how to get started with ...

Delphi for Linux. Revisited. Again.

Glooscap Software – I have been hoping for a long time that Embarcadero would reintroduce Linux support in Delphi, especially since they've added Mac, iOS and Android support in the mean time, hopefully working out (most of?) the kinks involved in cross platform support. I may have even brought it up once or twice at ...

Delphi Programming Index

Glooscap Software – Delphi celebrated its 22nd anniversary on February 14th and since it was Valentine's Day, people had some fun with #ILoveDelphi and some blog posts about their personal history with Delphi. Embarcadero even has a Delphi T-shirt design contest going on, which seems like a fairly reasonable geek thing ...

Books Part 3 - This Time It's Personal

Glooscap Software – "So many books, so little time." -- Frank Zappa I've written about the resurgence of new Delphi books before (here and here). Since then, I am pleasantly surprised to find even more, including new publications, updates and some that I missed, several of which are free e-books. If you know about ...

Free (and inexpensive) Tools From Embarcadero

Glooscap Software – I can (and sometimes do) argue the benefits of Delphi all day long, but if you're just starting out or aren't using it for paid development, the price can be a barrier to entry. So I was glad to see Embarcadero offering the Starter edition for free (until Sept 9th) and a Delphi Boot Camp, a free ...

The state of Delphi

Glooscap Software – Last week, three separate people asked my opinion on Delphi and which version they should be using for ongoing development. It probably won't surprise anyone that I recommended getting the latest version, Delphi 10 Seattle  (#10Seattle) and a subscription. Always get a subscription. Or, if they ...

Moar Books!

Glooscap Software – "Happiness is downtime with a good book" -- unknown The topic of Delphi books has come up again, and I thought an update might be in order. About a year ago I was impressed by all of the Delphi books that were being published and I posted as many recent examples as I could find. Not long ago, ...

Intersection of Art and Technology

Glooscap Software – I learned something interesting this weekend. Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is a Mexican born artist based in Montreal, Quebec.
