Building Delphi 3D Mobile Apps webinar follow up This week I was doing live webinar for developers in EMEA about building 3D apps in Delphi. It is always a good fun! During the presentation I have promised to share the demo code, so here it is. Go to GitHub and you can find there "DelphiArrows3D" repository that contains Delphi FireMonkey project template for interactive 3D visualisation that I have demonstrated during the webinar. It is a simple Delphi 10.1 project that shows how to build and interactive 3D mobile app. This project is really designed to act as a starting point for other 3D apps. A kind of a template. Just replace the content of "DummyScene" component with your 3D objects you want to visualise. ...

Using "reFind" tool to migrate BDE app to FireDAC with Delphi 10.1 Two weeks ago I was contributing to a bigger Delphi migration webinar run by my colleague Stephen Ball the demonstration of actual steps of live migration of BDE-based source code to FireDAC. Migration of existing VCL projects to the latest version of Delphi is the hot topic in Delphi community. Many migration tasks can be automated. Today at the Developer Conference in Tel Aviv Embarcadero MVP Oren Aviram is demonstrating "Software Modernization Made Easy" with his powerful Pascal Parser tool. For smaller and easier tasks you can use "refind" command-line tool that is based on regular expressions and can process arbitrary text files for replacing occurrences of cer...
Building Proximity Apps with RAD Studio Last week I had a pleasure of doing remote online presentation about building proximity-enabled mobile apps with Delphi and RAD Studio for Delphi developers gathered at the Delphi Developer Days 2016 in Poland. Here are some notes, links and demos from this presentation. Our smartphones are hardly phones anymore. They are in fact powerful, multi-purpose sensor centres that James Bond a few decades ago could have only dreamt about. If you think about it your phone has not only speakers and microphone, but also camera, light source, ambient light sensor, accelerometer, compass, 3D orientation sensors, GPS-location, NFC, Bluetooth and more. RAD Studio provides type definitions to wo...

CASE28 Conference in Croatia Delphi Presentation Today The power of 21st century technology today in action: doing live Delphi presentation during CASE28 Conference in Croatia without leaving my office in Amsterdam! I really love going to Croatia and it is my favourite destination for SCUBA diving. Sometimes you just cannot be physically present in too many locations in short periods of time:-) The presentation today was not too technical, however I have tried to demonstrate how easy it is to use Delphi and - using Rapid Application Development methodology - create fast, great looking, natively compiled apps for major mobile and desktop platforms from the same source code. The starting point is great compilation technology to create fast mach...
RAD Studio 10.1 Launch in Brno was great! One of my favourite places for doing Delphi live presentations is definitely Czech Republic. This week in Brno, the second biggest Czech city after Prague, more than hundred Delphi and C++Builder developers came to see the tour of the latest version of RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin. There was a lot of interest in building end-to-end solution with the new RAD Server and the Internet of Things. It was a lot of fun showing Enterprise Mobility Services and Thing Point applications gathering data over Bluetooth LE from different IoT devices like heartbeat and blood pressure meters. The new EMS Swagger YAML and JSON automatic generation has been nicely received as well. It is always great to meet D...
