Improve the Delphi Documentation

Glooscap Software – I know it's sometimes popular to reflexively say that Delphi's help sucks. And it's not like Borland and Embarcadero haven't given us some cause, but the documentation really has gotten much better over the years. Of course, there are still issues; New features that aren't well documented ...

FireMonkey 3D Enterprise Application

Glooscap Software – You might remember me writing that the FireMonkey framework isn't a full-blown gaming engine and that it's better suited to enterprise applications. (rimshot)This is a follow up to my May the Fourth and Revenge of the Fifth posts. These 3D models are also from mods of Sins of the Solar Empire by a ...

Revenge of the Fifth

Glooscap Software – You didn't think I'd go through the trouble of making a Star Wars Day post and miss out on the obvious follow-up pun, did you? The demo project (available here) is pretty much the same as the previous one except that it uses a different 3D model from  Star Wars: Thrawn's Revenge II: Ascendancy. ...

May the Fourth (be with you) - and some FireMonkey feature requests

I Heart Delphi

Glooscap Software – On February 14th, 2020, Delphi celebrates its 25th anniversary. Wow. It's no secret that I'm an unapologetic Delphi fan. I like the language, the IDE and the community. I've had the pleasure of meeting and working with some uncommonly smart people. But the reasons I keep using Delphi for serious ...

Summer Books

Glooscap Software – "It’s always better to have too much to read than not enough." -- Ann Patchett Six months ago it was "reading by the fire" weather and now it's "reading on the patio in the shade" weather. Either way, it's always fine weather for reading. OK, so not all of these are available in the summer, but ...

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 ...
