Do you know the song “Video Killed The Radio Star“? It seems like today it is “Twitter & G+ killed the blog post.” I thought I would summarize some of the recent news I’ve posted elsewhere.
bit Time Lab has a video showing off their multi-touch bluetooth app that controls a very small mini-cooper. They developed the libraries for multi-touch support and bluetooth they used with Appmethod (Object Pascal). Very cool!
I’ll be at Delphi Developer Days in Chicago and D.C. and we will have free evening events there too. These are great events full of fabulous content (I’ve attended in the past). I highly recommend you check them out. I’ll be showing Delphi working with Google Glass, Brain-Computer Interface, FireDAC, REST, and anything else I can squeeze in.
I’m also traveling to India and South Korea this month.
Eric Bonilha was featured in the Brazilian News for his work on a DigiFort app for Google Glass that stream live video to and from Google Glass. It is in Portuguese, but you can see some live demos of the app starting at just after 7 minutes in. All the software used to stream video and control cameras in that segment is written in Delphi by Eric and his team.
Curious about what is coming in XE6? There is a RAD Studio XE6 Sneak Peak event taking place April 16th. It looks really exciting!
I still get people asking about the new upgrade pricing. Check out the new License Recharge Program – if you own the latest version of Delphi, RAD Studio, or C++Builder then you qualify to save a lot of money when a new product is released.
David Intersimone and myself are running regular Google Hangout On-Air events. These are informal technical events we share some of the things we’ve been working on recently. Make sure you join the Embarcadero Technologies G+ community so you can be involved in the next one. The first two were experiments, we plan to promote the future ones better (although they will probably remain experimental and informal).
