I was actually quite surprised to be the first to receive it. Ever since Stack Overflow started I really wanted to see Delphi listed as one of the top category tags and badges. As of today it is one of twenty specialist badges and the 46th most common tag (not including the 13 variations like VCL, Delphi2009, Delphi-Prism, etc.) with 1,104 questions.
I am very pleased with the wonderful Delphi community that makes it so fun to be a part of the site. I am frequently surprised with how fast someone answers a Delphi question before I get a chance too. I am sure others feel the same way. I look forward to seeing a lot of other community memebers earning their Delphi badge. It is by far my favorite badge. Who could ask for something better to be associated with!
I’ve considered adding a Stack Overflow category to my blog.
BTW, for anyone wondering where this week’s podcast with Nick Hodges is, we were planning to record it on Thursday which happens to be the day the vandals cut the fiber leading to silicon valley. Now Nick is moving from Delphi Product Manager to Delphi R&D Manager. I am still trying to get him on again for a podcast, I am just not sure when or what that will look like yet.
