Sitting down to talk with Allen Bauer, Chief Scientist at Embarcadero working on Delphi. Talking with Allen about Delphi for Mac, 64-Bit Delphi and Delphi on other platforms. This is part 1 of 2.
Another combined episode with RemObjects Radio (we will have our own episodes again soon). In this episode I talk with marc hoffman, Olaf Monien and Daniel Magin about the upcoming Developer Solutions Conference in Las Vegas for this February 2011. There is a discount code good through Christmas on the site. This is a really exciting conference. It is the first joint conference with RemObjects and Developer Experts. We are re-inventing the conference to degree. The idea with the Developer Solutions Conference is to have all the sessions tightly coupled for a specific objective. The objective this time around is introducing developers to cross platform and mobile application development, specifically with multi-tier database applications. It will be a great conference and I look forward to seeing you all there.
Recorded live and in person at Delphi Tage in Berlin (I’m still here for 2 more weeks for EKON too). The Delphi Tage (“Delphi Days”) was a short (3-day) conference organized by the German Delphi PRAXiS community forums, alongside Embacrdero and Developer Experts. It provided two days of preconference workshops, and a day with 3 tracks of conference-style talks on various topics surrounding Delphi and Delphi Prism . Our podcast is basically a roundtable discussion with a bunch of people involved in the conference, including the organizers (Daniel Wolf and Daniel Magin), some RemObjects folks, David I from Embarcadero and Uwe Schuster (the guy behind the SVN integration in Delphi/Win32 XE) and Arvid Winkelsdorf of Indy fame.
Since this was so much fun, we decided to share this episode between here and RemObjects Radio.
Update: The organizers of the Delphi-Tage is the German Delphi community represented through Delphi-Praxis, Delphi-Treff and Entwickler-Ecke supported by Embarcadero Germany and Developer Experts. – Thanks to Martin for clarifying that for me.
Tonight at Delphi Live! is my Delphi Bots Live session. In this session I will show everyone how to use Delphi Prism to create a virtual bot to do battle in the 3D Unreal Tournament 3 game. So bring your laptop this evening and join in the fun.
You will need:
You do not need Unreal Tournament 3 to play along, since I will be hosting it.
The call for papers for the 5th CodeRage virtual conference is out. Deadline for papers is August 17th, and the conference is scheduled for October 4th – 8th. It isn’t a hard and fast rule, but generally speaking CodeRage is pretty close to the release of the new version of Delphi, not that anyone will be surprised by that time frame.
My question is, do most people who attend CodeRage also attend EKON or Delphi Live!, or is it a different crowd? I ask if people will be offended if some of my sessions are recycled. . . . Although I am sure I will have something new too. It is all just too exciting to not put something new together.
In episode 43 I have a nice conversation with Simon Kissel about his projects:
Thanks to Simon for his time and my apologies to him and everyone else that this took a while to post.
Update: The links were broken due to server issues. They are working now. Simon reported over 1000 downloads of CrossKylix since the update.
Delphi Live! debuted in 2009, and it was a hit. So much so they are doing it again. Great line up of speakers.
I have 3 sessions planned for this year:
- Silverlight in Delphi Prism – Both a half day workshop and a regular session
- Delphi Bots Live! - Using Delphi Prism and Unreal Tournament to create bots to battle it out in 3D
I hope to see you all there August 23-26th down in San Jose, CA.
Also, EKON 14 has their speaker list up now too. They have sessions in both English and German. I will have 4 English sessions there:
- Advanced Downloads – Great session on downloads and file transfers
- Silverlight in Delphi Prism – Again with a half day workshop or regular session
- Delphi Prism half day workshop
That is September 27th through 30th in Darmstadt, Germany.
I am sure I will see a few of you in both places, but it will be great to see you at whichever one is closer to you. I will be updating the titles and descriptions soon, and have some good preview information available for you as well.
Today we talk with David I, chief Developer Evangelist and VP of Developer Relations from Embarcadero Technologies.
We talk about
I planned to have David I’s interview posted over the weekend, but it might not be available until tomorrow. However I wanted to get a post in to let you know that tomorrow is the start of DataRage 2. If you are working with Databases then check it out. I am not presenting this year, but I am sure there is other good sessions.
