FireDAC MemTable Editing – New in 10.2 Tokyo One of my favorite new features (beyond Linux) is the ability to edit the data in a TFDMemTable at design time. You could already edit the field defs, to set it up. This makes the TFDMemTable, which was already super flexible and powerful, even more flexible. You can use it to capture some small data at design time and then use visual live bindings or data binding to connect it to visual controls. Holger Flick has a great blog post on the topic too. Here is a video I made with Sarina that shows...

Delphi Tokyo 10.2 Wallpaper I’ve had a few requests for my Delphi Tokyo 10.2 wallpaper that I made. I found out that while this is a picture of Mt.

They have many more Tokyo, Japan and Mt Fuji themed images if you want to make your own wallpaper. I purchased the sunglasses wearing spartan penguin from a different clipart site. The tattoo and scary eyes came from our interna...

Meet HOSOKAWA Jun, our Japan MVP I wanted to share a little about HOSOKAWA Jun, our Japanese MVP. He blogs at qiita.com/pik and you can follow him on Twitter @pik. When I was in Tokyo I got to meet HOSOKAWA Jun. We have a lot of great developers in Japan (and I met a lot of them at the event there), but many of them work at a company that doesn’t allow them to also be an MVP. Luckily Mr. Hosokawa works for SerialGames and they are happy to have him as an MVP. Don’t let his boyish good looks fool y...

Meet the Tokyo Engineers & MVP I got to sit down with some of the engineers in Tokyo to talk about C++Builder, RAD Studio and Delphi. C++Builder is big in Japan. Maybe even bigger than Delphi (which is saying a lot.) It was great to put faces with the names of these great guys who I’ve only corresponded with over email or social media before. Aiso-san, Mohri-san & Inoue-san are all software consultant engineers. Aiso-san and Inoue-san where part of the presentation #0315inTokyo with Fujii-san and I. The 4th engineer...
