Delphi 10.2 in Lillestrøm, Norway The weather started to rock. Last week was great and today in Norway, really up North, is beautiful sunny day and I'm wearing shorts waiting form my flight back home from Oslo. Norway is really nice. They have this nice balance between North and South European countries and people are relaxed. I like the fact that the floor in the whole airport is wooden. Nice feeling. Today I have been continuing my RAD Studio 10.2 tour with the morning presentation in the culture centre of Lillestrø...

RAD Studio 10.2 in Belgium The RAD Studio 10.2 tour continues. Today we had a stop in Belgium in Edegem. That's the same conference facility very close to Antwerp that hosts most RAD Studio events in Belgium. The facilities are great. The room was not as big as yesterday in Paris, but that was good, because all attendees could easily read the code from the screen. Every presentation is different. Today I have started from IDE productivity. Quick Edits have been received very well and there was this same question that pop...

Icons8 and Delphi GUIs Designing graphical users is a combination of different skills. Probably the artistic angle is the most important, but user experience comes close. In Delphi Rapid Application Development paradigm there is hardly the prototyping phase. Your rough designs very quickly turn into production applications. The key element in visual GUIs are graphics assets and specifically having a really nice set of icons can make a big difference. When playing with a new design for a Windows 10 VCL app, I hav...

Gothenburg - RAD Studio 10.2 I'm sitting at the gate at Gothenburg airtport waiting for my KLM flight to Amsterdam after very nice RAD Studio event in Alfasoft office in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Stockholm - RAD Studio 10.2 On the high speed train from Stockholm to Gothenburg. In the morning flew from Amsterdam to show the latest Delphi and C++Builder to Swedish developers. There is certain energy exchange happening on live developer presentations like this. You give something and you get something in return. Nice to have Internet and electricity in the train, but after the whole day of programming new ideas do not come easy. Every RAD event is different. From recent ones in Prague and Warsaw, I knew to keep enoug...

New in 10.2: MariaDB Support One of the biggest new RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo database features is support for MariaDB open-source relational database.

It is a fork from MySQL database, after it has been acquired by Oracle, the original creators of MySQL, started to work on MariaDB, which is highly compatible, some say 95%, with MySQL. Consequently you will not find a new "MariaDB" node in RAD Studio "Data Explorer", but existing FireDAC MySQL driver has been rework...
