Want more...RAD Studio XE2 Thirty-one posts in the thirty-one days in July.  Each day a new word for the "Want more..." series.  All of the words, all of the posts, all of the links and all of the hints all leading up to tonight.  You asked what it was all about.  You posted comments and sent me emails asking about products, technologies, languages, and Embarcadero plans.  I had to say "all good things come to those who wait".  Well, the time is now to open up the curtain. Tonight, we launched our RAD Studio XE2 World ...

When someone talks about supporting a platform they might be referring to an operating system platform, hardware platform, mobile platform, database platform, graphics hardware and software platform, service based platform, application based platform, a framework, or an architecture.  Operating system platforms in use today include Windows (desktop, server, and Mobile), Linux, OS X, iOS, Android, Blackberry OS, Unix (and it's vari...

Want more...Clouds I love singer/songwriters.  One of my all time favorites is Joni Mitchell.  Joni Mitchell wrote, in the song "Both Sides Now", "I've looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down, and still some how, it's clouds illusions I recall, I really don't know clouds at all".  We have so many choices for cloud computing architectures and services, one can spend a lot of time exploring the options and figuring out how to include them in your applications.  Previously, I wrote about "Want more...S...

Want more...Storage I have a Data Robotics Drobo FS network storage appliance at home with ten terabytes of disk space.  That seems like a lot of disk space, but one thing I know is that you can never have enough storage.  Thankfully, Delphi and C++Builder support the Microsoft Azure API and you can access the Azure Queue, Table, and Blob storage services.  You can also easily use Amazon S3 storage using Delphi and C++Builder.  Marco Cantu has written a blog article about his Delphi Amazon S3 programming example at...

Big data and getting bigger all the time When you read or hear the term "Big Data" what do you think about?  Do you visualize an extremely large database or data warehouse?  Do you think about architectures and algorithms for storing and processing big data?  When haven't we had big data in relation to the systems and services that we are asked to program?  Is yesterday's big data small data today?  With the Internet and the number of humans creating and consuming data, I guess we do have really big data today and it is only getting bi...

David I - Head is in the cloud, feet planted firmly in the ground Back in December I had fun conversation with John K. Waters (Application Development Trends editor-at-large).  The discussion focused on development issues facing software engineers who are moving their applications to cloud computing architectures.  Originally I thought that John was going to write an overview article quoting several industry friends.  He ended up writing a wonderful (if I say so myself) piece, "David I. Has His Head in the Cloud...". I am definitely spending a lot of time, ...
