Java student builds 3D Othello game on FireMonkey in 3 days

Posted by on in Blogs
In the week before Mobile World Congress, Daniel Messias joining us in the UK office on work placement. Daniel is a 17 year old student who has been programming some Java for a couple of years and is looking to study computing at University. It was great while he was with us that he transitioned skills over to programming with object pascal / Delphi programming exceptionally quickly; learn from some articles on he was able to really expand his capabilities and achieve things he never attempted before thanks to the FM Application Framework. In this video, you will see him explain in his own words how he got on and how Delphi really makes learning programming easy and cool as he built Othello in 3D for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac all from the same code base!

Finally, at the mobile world congress I visited the Nokia stand and had got this running on the new Nokia X immediately! Pretty Cool! :-)

    It's interessting. EMB told allways, that FMX is not a game engine, but instead is designed for busniness apps. But I only see game demos, and no business apps?

    This is exactly why there should be a cheap/free academic SKU.
