In last nights Walking Dead Season premiere, at 00:52 minute mark, in the Library scene - check out the bookshelf behind Carol. A little Delphi Unleashed goodness. Also an OWL book (the precursor to VCL and later, Firemonkey)! There are also some more Delphi books on the lower shelves. Of course these are all from back when Delphi was Windows only. Today's Delphi XE5 supports iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows all from a single source code base - helping developers natively support all the major device platforms without the time and cost of developing with multiple tools or settling for a script based approach. Developers are responding in a big way. The new RADStudio XE5 is driving record deman...

Today Apple announced the first new devices that will coincide with the release of iOS7, the first major UI overhaul for the device that “started it all”. iOS7 is significant not only because it is the first major UI styling and UX change for iOS, but it is also teamed up with two new blockbuster hardware announcements from Apple. The first, the iPhone 5s, transforms the phone into a passive biometric authentication device. While there’s been much speculation on this capability, I think it has been tremendously under appreciated and undervalued in it’s potential to change the way we use our devices. If it works as it should, we'll soon be carrying around a very simple way to conveniently and...

Below is the first Facebook photo and post from an app built in Delphi for Android. Photo was taken from the Android (Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0) camera using the a Firemonkey camera action, then shared on facebook using a Firemonkey sharesheet action.

This past week I had some great conversations with developers at WWDC in San Francsico while waiting in line for sessions, between sessions, and at the various events. I met a few developers focused solely on iOS, but the majority I spoke with were with companies that are working to deliver their product value across multiple devices and form factors including Macs and iOS mobile devices. I talked to developers working on document management, wearable fitness devices, event ticketing, and more. We discussed different approaches, frameworks, languages, and business models. But the common denominator boiled down to the need and challenge to deliver their business to as many users as possible. ...

A new video posted from Daniel Magin of DeveloperExperts and an Embarcadero MVP demoing building an iOS Geolocation app with the Delphi iOS Beta. This week is also one of the best times to get Delphi or a Delphi upgrade, because there is an "early bird" 20% off promotion running on Delphi Enterprise and RADStudio editions when purchased with an update subscription (aka maintenance or software assurance). These are the editions that are planned to include iOS when it's available. And with the RADStudio mobile roadmap and more platforms and frequent updates and upgrades on the horizon, this is certainly way I would recommend purchasing Delphi or RADStudio today. This particular promo is endin...
