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.

Simple Mobile FireDAC App

Some Great Women of Programming

The PodCast at Delphi.org – It frequently puzzles me that programming seems to be dominated by men when the founders of programming and many of the greatest programmers were women.
