Why I choose Delphi Why do I use Delphi I have been using Delphi since the first version came out back in 1995. My first encounter with Delphi was with Cary Jensen doing a presentation in Copenhagen. I was a student at the time, and didn't really have the money to attend the presentation, which was something like $250. Luckily my brother invited me. The $250 included a licensed copy of Delphi on CD ROM. This was the days of DOS - Windows 3.11, so writing a program in Turbo Pascal or anything like it was a timecon...

MVVM Workshop - Malcolm Groves as speaker The last two days have been awesome. In the beautiful surroundings of Nyborg with a view to the sea, and the bridge connecting the isle of Funen to Sealand in Denmark we just had a two day workshop with MVVM (Model-View-ViewModel).  Basically MVVM is "just" decoupling your user interface with the business logic. Having said that in one sentence you can easily guess that Malcolm took us a bit further. The workshop is a tradition in Denmark, we always have the workshop in April and in Octob...

MVVM Workshop with Malcolm Groves  - DAPUG Next week is going to be fun for me and around 30 other Delphi developers. Malcolm Groves is coming to Denmark to do our spring workshop. We (DAPUG = Danish Delphi Users Group) have a workshop twice a year. One in April and one in October. The workshop is a two day event, similar to a Conference, but we have just one speaker talking at ALL the sessions. In fact, this is not entirely true, as we did at some point have both Marco Cantú and Cary Jensen at a workshop. This was not the Delphi Develo...
App Tethering, threading, REST, automated test and more... Last week we had a very good meeting at the danish users group with almost 30 attendees.A lot of new people were there, and certainly some people I've known for 20 odd years.  As always with our one day meetings we had an agenda with speakers from within the group. On the agenda this time I was up first showing and telling how to use App Tethering, in a system that actually could be used in a real life scenario, so in stead of the usual "Hello World" kind of application I built a complete ...
