Write a Twitter Client with Delphi XE7

Nick Hodges – I just wrote a Twitter client with Delphi XE7.  It took about thirty minutes, and most of that was spent trying to figure things out on the Twitter side of things.  Here’s the first tweet from my app: It was surprisingly easy once you figure out the Twitter security. Here's how I did ...

Flotsam and Jetsam #85

Nick Hodges – I have been spending a lot of time with XE7 lately, mainly working on presentations for EKON18.  I’m speaking on a number of topics, and thus have been running XE7 through the paces pretty well.  Impressions so far: Having Castalia as a free add-on is fantastic.  I’m ...

Where to Get Delphi Help

Nick Hodges – Sadly, the good old Embarcadero newsgroups NNTP Feed appear to have come to an end.  Alas.  I’ve been a member of those groups in one form or another for over 20 years, starting with the Compuserve forums and ending up with the wonderful and grossly underappreciated NNTP newsgroups.  ...

Flotsam and Jetsam #83

Nick Hodges – Del Yocam is a former Borland CEO, a purchaser of $30,000 couches, the creator of the immortal “Inprise”, a lover of pizza, and apparently a check kiter. I have decided to take the advice of some commenters and leave the site pretty much alone.  I removed a bunch of the ads that weren’t ...

I’m not happy with this blog design.

Nick Hodges – I’m not happy with my blog design.  Frankly, I think it kind of looks terrible.  But here’s the problem.  I don’t really know what to do about it.  I’m currently using BlogEngine.Net, and a theme for it that I kind of cobbled together to do things that I wanted it to ...

Delphi XE6 is Here

Nick Hodges – Delphi XE6 has been released.  There are reportedly over 2500 bug fixes in it, which is quite a few and quite in keeping with the QPS (Quality, Performance, Stability) plan they’ve discussed.  Probably the best place to find out what is in the release is in the DocWiki’s What’s New ...

Nick in Australia

Nick Hodges – I’m really excited to return to Australia and speak at the Australian Delphi Users Group.  They were kind enough to invite me, and so off I go next week to Melbourne and Brisbane to talk about Dependency Injection and Design Patterns.  If you are in Australia and not going, I’m ...

Coding in Delphi Now Available in Print

Nick Hodges – My book, "Coding in Delphi" is now available in print.  This is pretty cool. You can get it from CreateSpace or Amazon.  I'm grateful for every order.  It seems very strange to have my own entry for sale on Amazon.  Writing a book is a lot of work, but I will say, it's quite ...

The Delphi Unit Test Project

Nick Hodges – In a previous post, I humbly suggested that Embarcadero publish their unit tests for Delphi.  I still think it is a good idea, but I understand if they don’t do it.  They do have a lot to do. So I thought – after suggestions from folks that read the post, including Ken Cochran – that it ...
