Going Mobile (for online shopping) is the Way Ahead Last Friday morning, at my London Heathrow Airport hotel, The Times newspaper was placed at my door.  I kept a two page spread article from inside the newspaper that was titled "Going Mobile Is The Way Ahead".  I don't think anyone would disagree about the impact that mobile devices and app development are having in our world.  Would you?  What really caught my eye (I love infographics and statistics) was the page full of results from a 2013 UK Mobile Online Shopping Survey done by IMRG/eDigital...
The end of a great week in Europe with Delphi for iOS I am sitting at London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 at the end of a great week in Denmark and England using RAD Studio XE4 and Delphi XE4.  Many thanks go out to the 42 enthusiastic developers who spent two days with me in Nyborg Denmark at the Dapug Delphi XE4 workshop.  We spent the two days building DataSnap and Delphi for iOS applications.  It was wonderful to see all of the developers creating new Delphi mobile applications in just a few minutes.  Thanks, also, to the happy developers in Lon...

Locking my iOS drums app to landscape orientation I've recently decided my PlayMyDrums iOS app is best suited for the iPad and more specifically landscape mode (rotated 90 degrees). Take a look at the app in Portrait mode - it doesn't provide enough playing area since it shrinks the image to fit. Additionally, the FireMonkey ellipses I used to specify the hit area need to be aligned to work in portrait mode. Since I've decided to make it work in Portrait mode only, I am not going to worry about realining for this orientation. Rather I am...
Feb 14, 2013 - Delphi's 18th birthday celebration - ongoing innovations and new multi-device support Back on February 14, 1995 we launched the first version of Delphi at the Software Development Conference West in San Francisco California.  Building way beyond the previous 12 years of Turbo Pascal innovations, Delphi arrived on the scene combining a 16-bit Windows native code compiler, visual component architecture (properties, methods and events), visual two way tools IDE, Windows run-time library, and database support. Since that time, the development team has continued to add modern innovat...

Who wants to play my drums? Since it is impractical to invite everyone over to my house to play my drums, I decided I will write an iOS application using FireMonkey to deliver the next best thing. Below you see an overhead shot of one of my drumsets. I have recorded each of the drums and cymbals with different levels of velocity so that when a touch gesture is fired on top of the drum or cymbal I can play the appropriate sample depending on the pressure of the touch. Each hit will glow the drum/cymbal as well. Should ...
