Building rich applications and agile development methods...

Posted by on in Blogs
The March issue of SD Times is available online. Earlier this year I was asked to give my thoughts about building rich web applications (can't we drop the word "web" and talk about building rich applications) and also agile development methods.

The first article is "Web, desktop, mobile:  what's the difference?" Exactly my point.  RAD Studio XE lets you build native-code rich applications and deploy them on your desktops, on your servers, in the cloud, and access them from client desktops, servers, browsers, smart phones and kiosk desktops. The article starts on page 53.

The other article is "Agile, lean and all in between".  At Embarcadero our R&D teams use the SCRUM agile method with 3 and 4 week sprint durations.  Our documentation team works alongside R&D during the sprints and then uses a waterfall type method to complete the user documentation before we ship each product.  The article starts on page 62.

There is also a cool RAD STudio XE add on page 3 of the magazine!

    I don't mean to offend your argument but at the end of the day. Do delphi user/buyer will have update/bug fixes for every two months or they have to buy newer version of Delphi in order to get bug fixes

    Delphi Lover questioned - "Do delphi user/buyer will have update/bug fixes for every two months or they have to buy newer version of Delphi in order to get bug fixes"

    The answer for most software tool vendors is both - we release udpates and hot fixes for both tools and documentation - and we also are releasing new versions on an annual basis.
