Remote debugger recalcitrance

Android callbacks wrapped by FireMonkey

Brian Long – A couple of years ago (exactly!) I posted on this blog about an article I’d written on accessing NFC tags from Delphi Android applications.

I find Code Templates fabulously helpful and Live Templates add some real power into the mix. About six or seven months ago (November 2015) I did a User Group ...

Brian Long – Well, well, well, it turns out I’ve been working for myself for two decades now!
