David Millington, C++ Product Manager

David is an Australian developer, although these days he lives in far northern Europe: if you go north, then you cross just one country to get to the North Pole. (It's further than it sounds, and he does see sunlight in winter -- occasionally.)

If you follow the RAD Studio developer community closely you may have heard of some IDE plugins I write, which a...
