6 – Cast on News

This episode is the first of what I hope to be a recurring feature where I get together with other bloggers and community members to discuss Delphi news.  We talk about Delphi 2009, Stack Overflow and their OpenId Issues, why we use Delphi, and other current events.

Roland Beenhakker is a long time Delphi user since version 1. He started his own company Beensoft Software Engineering. In this company a small team of professionals build software and webapplications to customer’s specifications, using Delphi and other tools. He is located in Heiloo, Netherlands, which is about 40 kilometers north of Amsterdam. His blog is Delphi Power Unleashed.

Jolyon Smith has been using Delphi since literally before it was realeased, as he has access to the Borland Early Experienec Program through his employeer at the time. Before that he was developing client/server Windows applications before it became fashionable, primarily using Gupta SQLWindows and SQLBase. Apart from software development, he is a rabid movie geek, a devoted family man, a voracious reader and an enthusiastic singer. He lives in Aukland, New Zealand and his blog is Te Waka o Delphi.

marc hoffman is the Chief Software Architect for RemObjects and a Spare-time Photographer. When he is not guest appearing on this podcast he runs a blog at RemObjects.com where he talks about Oxygene and shares some of his photographs. marc lives in Berlin Germany, and prefers his name all lowercase.

    Great job on the podcasts – but am I the only one finding the download speed painful? I’m getting 4-6kb a second.

    That was fun! 🙂
    However, am I the only one who find’s marc’s audio really hard to understand because of the massive reverb? Kind of sounds like he was speaking from a really big tiled room like a public lavatory or something… It was already the same the week before when he talked about Oxygene.

    Thanks for the feedback on marc’s audio. He is probably in a square room with wooden walls. I imagine he will be back (seems to like the podcast) so I will work with him and see if we can reduce reverb. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Jim – we can have a test call play with some of the options in Audio Hijack Pro – there’s just about nothing that thing cannot control on the audio stream 😉

What are your thoughts?
