Why I Keep Choosing Delphi

The PodCast at Delphi.org – Early on I learned Turbo Pascal, which was a huge step up from the Basic and Batch File programming I cut my teeth on. When Delphi came along I thought it was brilliant and fell in love immediately. I had no interest in learning other programming languages or tools. Delphi did it all, and that was ...

Really Bad Exception Abuse

The PodCast at Delphi.org – I was reading Nick Hodges’ Coding in Delphi again last night (insomnia). In chapter 1 on Exception Handling he opens talking about how not to use exceptions.
