More a monthly than a weekly roundup of Delphi and RAD Studio related blogs post, news, and more... but a fat one.

Nick on Delphi and #Code2014 at www.codingindelphi.com/blog/delphi-and-code2014/ (I agree, Delphi did very well, but I personally consider this more of a fun competition than a real indication of a language popularity) Related with that, this is yet another Programming Languages popularity chart at langpop.corger.nl/ (in which Delphi is doing quite nice) Delphi even got into a slashdot discussion at ask.slashdot.org/story/15/01/25/1739255/ask-slashdot-is-pascal-underrated
