Delphi Blogs of the Month #59

Posted by on in Tutorial

I have already blogged specifically about the 10.2.3 release, the patches we delivered for it, and linked to the collection of related articles in the community site at https://community.embarcadero.com/blogs/tags/tag/10-2-3. In particular, the launch webinar reply is available at https://community.embarcadero.com/blogs/entry/10-2-3-webinar-replay. Not much else to add, if not that it has been very well received by the users.

Ready for Debate? Which Windows Framework and What About StackOverflow?

Two topics that could spawn a significant debate, I'm sure.

The first is I found it very interesting to read this article by respected technical author Tim Anderson on "Which .NET framework for Windows: UWP, WPF or Windows Forms?" at https://www.itwriting.com/blog/10182-which-net-framework-for-windows-uwp-wpf-or-windows-forms.html. I strongly believe VCL provides a better option than any of the current Microsoft framework, plus it clearly wins for a long-lived applications and has the highest degree of long time support and compatibility. A couple of comments hinted at VCL, nice. Anyway, Tim recently reiterated the question on Twitter, https://twitter.com/timanderson/status/981933828964003840.

The second good topic for a discussion is reading Nick's take on the status of StackOverflow, at http://www.codingindelphi.com/blog/in-which-i-pontificate-about-stackoverflow/. But read also this twitter thread by an internal : https://twitter.com/balpha/status/984839394829000706
