Code for DIID Updated

Delphi-losophy – Thanks to the comment of a generous reader — whom I am ashamed to say I can’t remember — I have updated the code for Dependency Injection in Delphi to remove all the uses of the GlobalContainer.   The book removed it all, but I failed to properly update the repository. You can ...

Amazon

Delphi-losophy – Look, I’m not a lawyer. I don’t know anything about anti-trust law that I haven’t read online or see on TV or whatever. But I just read about six articles in the New York Times about Amazon, and all of them have the tone that Amazon is this close to a lawsuit from the Department ...

Working with my First Dapp

Delphi-losophy – Okay, for all you non-cool kids, “Dapp” is the short form of “Decentralized Application”.  I’m told that it is pronounced “Dap” and not “Dee-app”.  I wrote about dapps a bit in my last blog post. After posting, I decided I wanted to find a dapp ...

Everything You Think You Know About “Cryptocurrency” is Wrong. Even the Name.

Delphi-losophy – If you haven’t heard of Bitcoin by now, then you should probably find out about it right now if you even remotely want to have any Geek-cred at all. Okay, anyway, I actually made a pretty nice chunk of money off of Bitcoin.  A few years ago I took a modest chunk of bitcoin in return for an ...

On ISBNs

Delphi-losophy – A commenter on my last post asked about why I bought 100 ISBNs.  That does seem like a lot, no? Well, the ISBN game is a bit of a racket. ISBN stands for “International Standard Book Number” — and it uniquely identifies a book world wide.  It even identifies different forms of the ...

In Which I Pontificate About StackOverflow

Delphi-losophy – Joel Spolsky is kind of a hero to me. He was one of the first developer bloggers — one of the first guys to write about things that we developers were thinking about and talking about. He wrote classics like “The Joel Test” and stuck up for developer environments with “Bionic ...

A Busy Week Produces 10.2 Tokyo

Delphi-losophy – “Shipping is a feature” is one of my favorite sayings.  In fact, I’d argue that shipping is the most important feature, because without it, you don’t get any other features.  But shipping is a lot of work – as this past week proved.  On Wednesday, we shipped RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo, ...
