"Modeling Code with Delphi Enterprise" webinar, Mar 8th, 11AM Amsterdam   The "Why Upgrade To Enterprise" webinar series continues! Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 8th, 11am CET, I'm going to do a live developer webinar about "Modeling Code with Delphi Enterprise". This webinar will be recorded and repeated later during the day for other timezones. The webinar is free, but you need to register here. UML Modeling is a very rich subject.

Demystifying Macros with ER/Studio In the webinar, Demystifying Macros with ER/Studio, Embarcadero Software Consultant Stanley Chan demonstrated how macros work in ER/Studio. He showed how to use the built-in macros and also shared some custom macros during the session. If you missed the live presentation, you can watch it on demand. There were a lot of great questions during the session, some of which Stan didn’t have time to answer live. So he has provided responses to several of those for this blog. Q: In the color-coding de...

Want more...Knowledge I am in the constant search for knowledge of all kinds. While I continue my search in the areas of software engineering and computer programming, I also explore other areas where software might be used.  In my undergraduate studies at Cal Poly Computer Science (1969-1973) I took a range of non-computer science courses as part of my degree.  The Cal Poly "Learn by Doing" philosophy expanded our knowledge to include areas where computers and software would be used in my future career.  After gradu...
