Today, you can already package Delphi and C++Builder 10.1 Berlin applications using the APPX format for Windows 10 Anniversary Edition users. Looking ahead, Microsoft has been promising the ability to convert the existing Win32/64 applications built with any tool—including RAD Studio. These apps will be convertible into first class UWP applications, using the Windows Desktop Bridge—also known as Project Centennial. This will give developers the ability to distribute single APPX files to a user that is running Windows 10 Anniversary Edition. In the near future, it should be possible to distribute and sell such applications through the Windows Store. We expect that the Windows Desktop Bridge (...

Sixty Plus FireDAC Sample Apps With Source To Make Accessing Databases Easy FireDAC is a unique set of Universal Data Access Components for developing multi-device database applications for Delphi and C++Builder. With its powerful common architecture, FireDAC enables native high-speed direct access from Delphi to InterBase, SQLite, MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, IBM DB2, SQL Anywhere, Access, Firebird, Informix and more. Based on 10 years of experience writing native drivers for database back-ends, FireDAC was built as a powerful access layer that supports all the features needed to build real-world high-load applications. FireDAC provides a common API for accessing different database back-ends, without giving up access to unique database-specific features,...
Proximity Sensors Made Simple With BeaconFence In RAD Studio On Android And iOS 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 ...

On the week from September 5 to 9th, Embarcadero is organizing a Delphi training course, 2 hours each day, with lessons given by some of the product experts (myself included, I'll cover the Delphi programming language). This is not meant for existing developers, but for new developers approaching the language -- or people who haven't used it in a while. Bootcamp information at at http://embt.co/2016delphicamp So the invite is not mostly for the readers of this blog, but all of their friends interested in programming, so that they can see what Delphi is and start playing with it for free. In fact, as part of the deal there is a unique and time limited offer to order a copy of Delphi ...
Top Five Android And IOS Device Sensors You Can Easily Access From FireMonkey 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...
18 Code Samples Highlighting New Features In RAD Studio Berlin 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 ...

この記事は、Alternative Blogからの転載です。 夏場は、腰を据えてスキルを磨こうというのは世界的に共通なようで、お盆休み前から「BOOT CAMP」なる企画が展開されはじめた。英語圏では、C++ BOOT CAMPを8月中旬、Delphi BOOT CAMPを9月上旬というスケジュールで実施しているが、日本では、お盆休みを避け、以下のような日程で開催することにした。 C++ BOOT CAMP8月29日~9月1日 毎日16:00~17:00 Delphi BOOT CAMP9月12日~9月15日 毎日16:00~17:00 どちらもビジュアル開発ツールを使って、効率的にプログラミング技術を学ぶという趣旨だが、C++ BOOT CAMPの場合、C++固有の言語新機能であったり、C++言語を習得するためのテクニックなども盛り込まれる。一方、Delphi BOOT CAMPは、Pascal由来の言語構文が分かりやすく明瞭であるということから、言語そのものより、ビジュアル開発に比重を持たせ、ビジュアル開発ツール初心者にもとっつきやすい内容となる予定。もっとも、こちらの言語の進化も著しいので、言語にフォーカスした日も設ける。 いずれもWebセミナー形式で実施するので、オフィスや自宅のPCやスマホ、タブレットから参加できる。 重要なのは、このイベントに合わせて、Delphi StarterとC++Builder Starterを無料提供することだ。C++に関しては、C++Compilerの無料提供を続けていたが、IDEとしては、久しぶり。期...
