These are the components you are looking for I’m not the first to blog about components, probably not even the first today. By this point you know that we acquired some of Raize Software’s top offerings. Maybe you’ve already checked them out, use them daily, know them backwards and forwards and are wearing the t-shirt. CodeSite Studio 5 and Konopka Signature VCL Controls (formerly known as Raize Components) have been available from Embarcadero for a few months now. Get the whole run-down on these powerful tools here: Konopka and CodeSite. So what’s new??? You can get them free with any upgrade or purchase of Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate RAD Studio, C++Builder or Delphi 10 Seattle through December 18, 2015. See here for details. Is that all? Why no, it’s not. If you just want to purchase these as stand-alone components we’ve made some changes to what you get. In short, we have cranked up the value. Each license is now fully loaded with maintenance for a full year. We’ve cut the pricing. We’ve also simplified upgrades. We heard you loud and clear and are offering you more. CodeSite Studio 5 and Konopka Signature VCL Controls work with our latest release, 10 Seattle. Find them here.

You should be using EMS Would it be valuable to have an easy to deploy middleware server that hosts loadable custom API and data access modules? What if it was fully turnkey? How about if it was based on open and standard technologies, including REST HTTP calls and JSON data formats, and provided major SQL database drivers along with an encrypted embedded and server SQL database? If you answered yes to any of these, then you may want to start using Embarcadero’s Enterprise Mobility Services or EMS.

Inside PocketSlip A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to speak with Ryno Coetzee, a very talented software developer out of Johannesburg, South Africa. In 2014, Ryno came up with a brilliant solution for retailers to eliminate paper receipts. He embarked on developing a mobile app to bring his vision to fruition. He needed to act quickly, but refused to compromise on quality, stability or functionality. Ryno chose Delphi, from Embarcadero technologies to deliver on his vision. Three months from concept to imple...

I want to build a BeaconFence I'm not a software developer, but after seeing BeaconFence in action I'd like to learn.   My background is design, business and marketing, and amazingly BeaconFence embodies each of these areas. There is a real design element to creating a map and layout of a floor plan and then seeing it in scale in your IDE. Defining the ultimate beacon locations to create zones and paths is pure design zen. Through BeaconFence I can see incredible opportunity for a ...
