Blogs from Valentines #ILoveDelphi day

Here is a summary of some of the best blogs from the day from around the world.

Modernize Webinar

During the day I was hosting the replay of the popular webinar “Upgrade or become extinct”, and it was great to hear from 100’s of developers who are currently migrating and updating to the latest technologies.

Still after 22 year, Delphi is continuing to modernise and lead the market, Today, RAD Studio IDE is the only IDE to offer developers integrated .appx packaging for native applications on Windows 10 using the Windows Desktop Bridge, and with Linux just around the corner…. There is no better time to upgrade.

Subscription Model

One tweet during the day said how much they loved Delphi, but wished it was on a subscription model. – Well it kind of is!

Delphi, C++Builder or both together as RAD Studio all come with a years update (well slightly more for Enterprise and Architect in the current promotion running). At the end of the year, the annual subscription price is a fraction of the initial purchase.  Update Subscription is am awesome way to keep current and get everything that is coming….

Linux is Coming
