BeaconFence is a developer proximity solution that delivers precise “GPS-Free” indoor/outdoor user location tracking and events with radial and geometric zones for any physical location and layout. Visually draw the layout of the physical location and beacon placement to track location information down to inches. Create radial and rectangular zones and track intersections, enters, and exits with callback events. BeaconFence enables developers to take proximity beacons to the next level by adding precision spatial location awareness to their applications both indoors and outdoors.
It provides your application on a BLE device with the following features: Monitor beacons and trigger proximity ...
RAD Studio provides you access to a variety of device sensors on Android and IOS in FireMonkey. There are six different demos which show how to easily access a number of these different sensors. The demos are Gyroscope, Accelerometer, AccessCameraApp/CameraComponent, Location, and OrientationSensor. These demos use the TOrientationSensor, TLocationSensor, TMotionSensor, TCameraComponent, and TTakePhotoFromCameraAction components.
The Gyroscope sample demonstrates how to use the Gyroscope in order to rotate a 3D cube when your device is tilted. This sample suports both iOS or Android devices. The sample uses the TOrientationSensor component and the TCustomOrientationSensor class to act like ...
So a lot is going on in the Delphi Community this autumn.
Just the day before yesterday we had a meeting in Dapug, the danish Delphi Users group. The main topic was how to connect to various databases on various platforms. Also different coding styles with regards to databases.
Devart sponsored a license to any given product so thanks a lot to www.Devart.com and Congratulations to Anders Balslev for winning.
Later in Septmber (28th and 29th) I am teaching a course in Fredericia, Denmark where I have my office. Link
10th of October I have a one-day workshop with the main topic being "whats new since Delphi XE" Link
18th and 19th of October I have a training course in Gothenbur...
There are a number of new IoT code samples around ThingConnect and ThingPoint in RAD Studio Berlin. Additionally, there is a new set of FireDAC samples, quite a few new FireMonkey code samples, and a couple new RTL samples highlighting new components. These samples are available through the Embarcadero DocWiki, SourceForge, and they come installed with RAD Studio as well where they can be accessed via Start | Programs | Embarcadero RAD Studio Berlin | Samples.
The new IoT code samples are EMS.APIDocAttributes Sample, EMS.ThingPoint IoT Sample, and EMS.ThingPoint ThingConnect IoT Sample. The EMS.APIDocAttributes Sample consists of an EMS package that loads a new resource into the EMS Server ...

In 10.1 Berlin, we introduced TAddressBook, a new FireMonkey component for creating, accessing and managing contacts on iOS and Android.
We have updated our existing FireMonkey contacts demo and added the ability to add a photo to each contact you create. This demo uses our built-in actions for selecting an image from the gallery or taking a photo using the camera on your device.
Tried something new where I went over the current issue of Blaise Pascal with Detlef Overbeek. The video is available on YouTube.
INTERVIEW WITH ATANAS POPOV
Atanas agreed after being asked immediately to be interviewed. That was about two months ago. About two weeks ago there was quite a lot of turbulence in the community and vendors went nervous, some people even saw some kind of armageddon for Delphi. Even the more reason to talk the new Chief, ask him all the questions about their new policy, what is going to happen to and with Delphi. An explanation sometimes even in detail follows in the magazine.
CREATE AND TRAIN YOUR FIRST NEURAL NETWORK

If you are looking to wire up your home or office with smart technologies there are a number of devices that you can easily connect to and control from Delphi and C++Builder. These smart IoT devices that are part of ThingConnect. Bluetooth LE and Z-Wave are two technologies that are supported by ThingConnect. Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) or Smart Bluetooth provides a new environment for devices with small amount of data to transfer and lower power consumption. The Z-Wave protocol is an inter-operable, wireless, RF-based communications technology designed specifically for control, monitoring and status reading applications in residential and light commercial environments.
