Hit the road, Jack! Go RAD Studio XE3!

Posted by on in Blogs
Blog is very much like a "log". Place to make a note of something that heppened. I like to document here different events that I'm presenting on or at least participating in. Programming events I mean...
The more events there is and the more frequent they get, it is more and more difficult to do it in a timely fashion. Today we have done with Stephen and Jon the last Developer Direct live webinar and I have realised that I have not been documenting my live events in the last month or so!

The last quarter was all about RAD Studio XE3 and specifically C++Builder and Delphi FireMonkey apps and also HTML5 Builder web and mobile apps.

When going through "Pictures" folder on my MacBook, it feels like a crazy ride. "Hit the road, Jack!". Again...

In the reversed order:-)

Dec 13, 2012 - Hoofddorp, The Netherlands
Yesterday I was doing my first live C++ presentation ever, demonstrating the new Embarcadero Windows 64-bit compiler, based on the new generation LLVM and CLANG architecture. The audience, C++ developers only, enjoyed the new C++11 language features like "auto" keyword, but main focus was on FireMonkey cross-platform architecture. The was a good fun!

Dec 10-12, 2012 - CodeRage 7 virtual conference
This week is all about C++! From Monday to Wednesday there was an excellent virtual CodeRage 7 conference and I had a pleasure to host two sessions: C++ DataSnap and C++ FireMonkey 3D programming. I was always focusing on Delphi, but C++ programming is not that much different. On the first CodeRage day there was a live interview with Bjarne Stroustrup, the father of C++ language. That was a very interesting session. Wednesday sessions with C++Builder R&D engineers were also super cool.

Nov 28, 2012 - Sofia, Bulgary
That was a very well attended and organized Delphi and FireMonkey event. Lots of questions and big interest in the technology. Really nice!

Nov 27, 2012 - Bucharest, Romania
The was my second time to present in Bucharest. Very good atmosphere and in-depth technical questions.

Nov 22, 2012 - BE-DELPHI conference, Edegem, Belgium
On BE-DELPHI conference I had pleasure to copresent on the opening keynote with Delphi Product Manager, Marco Cantu!

Nov 21, 2012 - Zwolle, The Netherlands
That was a very nice live session about Delphi and FireMonkey co-organized with DTS, one of Embarcadero partners in the Netherlands. We also had a guest speaker André Mussche from DTS who was presenting some real life Delphi code that he is using in real customer implementation. Very interesting to see practical usage of advanced concepts like generics, custom attributes, ORM-engines and proper separation of tiers.

Nov 15, 2012 - Katowice, Poland
The event in Katowice was really good. I have been presenting Delphi, FireMonkey and HTML5 Builder with Bogdan Polak, from BSC Polska, our partner in Poland. Bogdan is really good technically, but he is also a great presenter!

Nov 13, 2012 - Brno, Czech Republic
The FireMonkey and HTML5 Builder in Brno was organized in the ZOO. One of the main attractions was basiliscus. He was not moving much, probably very intrigued with native compilation for multiple operating systems from the very same codebase!

Green peafowl was also trying to join the presentation:-)

Nov 6-8, 2012 - Delphi CodeRage 7 virtual conference
The biggest online Delphi event in the year. I had two sessions: Delphi XE3 DataSnap and Delphi XE3 FireMonkey 3D development. All the recordings from this conference are available now for playback. This is one of the biggest learning resources for RAD Studio XE3!

Hit the road, Jack! Go RAD Studio XE3!
