Were I rich... I'd definitely run a restaurant. You know, for IT crowd only. Lots of specialized dishes for developers: beef stack, crashed potato, double and squeak... you can try in case you begin, but you always finalize. Anyhow, my restaurant would be different.  I hate greasy paper menus, which are always too long and my choice is always "not today, we're sorry". Or too short. Or the same day by day. This year in Barcelona, where I was for Mobile World Congress 2016, every other restaurant had no Russian menu, and no pictures. My restaurant must be differnt.  Mobile First Restaurant The idea is trivial, the application is killer in terms it can change or improve the...

Smart Pointers in C++: What, Why, and How with David Millington Smart pointers are a basic concept in C++, but many codebases don't use them or don't trust them, or even worse use the wrong ones. Here's an explanation of what they are, which to use, and most importantly how and when to use them. David Millington, C++ Product Manager Embarcadero

I’d like to introduce you to Android development using RAD Studio. In this webinar session, I cover the installation of RAD Studio and some basic code examples from Hello World, to consuming a REST service. The examples are not pretty, they are very minimal for the sake of study. This video does not even scratch the surface of what is possible with RAD Studio for Android, let alone RAD Studio for cross platform, but I hope it will help you to get started writing Android applications. This video is best viewed full screen at 1080p http://chapmanworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/AndroidWithRADStudio.mp4   [Source code to be uploaded, please check back later]...

This is not a reproduction of our CodeRage XI session. It will be more in format of short blog posts. Preamble - kill or be killed Mobility is a trend for journalists (hot news), hardware manufacturers (more revenew), and business (fast grow of productivity). For desktop developers (+Delphi) it means great threat.  If you're not a mobile developer, you won't be in a mainstream of IT-strategy. It's up to you: go up with "custoer engagement, competitiveness, and operational productivity" or just maintain the desktop legacy code. I'd better combine to be safe. I'd better make a killer mobile app. Competence B2B mobile solution is called "mobile", while about 80% of code is server si...
