This is basically an experiment with the new Jing tool from TechSmith and creating a screen cast with Delphi 2009. Just so you know up front, there is no editing, so you are getting the raw screen cast (although I did a few takes) so it isn’t as polished as my usual podcast.
You can download the SWF file or use the link above to view it online. It is really small (5.64 MB) and should stream quickly. Like I said, this is an experiment, so I would really like your feedback on the process so I can tune future screen casts better.
[Update: I took off the enclosure. I don’t think most video players can handle the SWF file anyway.]
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.

Back in episode 2 Nick Hodges told us to learn the latest features of .NET since the future version of Delphi for .NET will have full support of all .NET features. Instead of learning C# or VB.NET, we can use Oxygene by RemObjects. In this episode we talk with marc hoffman of RemObjects about Oxygene – the surprisingly complete Object Pascal implementation for .NET.
Also a note about last week’s episode: In addition to all the great information on using generic collections, I also had asked our guest, Julian Bucknall, some questions about the implementation of the TDictionary class. Julian did not write this class, nor did he heavely research the code. He did tell me how he understood it worked. Well it turns out he a missunderstood some of the implementation details. Barry Kelly, the author of that class added some comments on the show notes for that show. Check those comments out for a correction on the implementation of the generic TDictionary in Delphi 2009.
We continue our discussion with Julian Bucknall, the Chief Technical Officer of DevExpress and the author Tomes of Delphi: Algorythms and Data Structures. We will be talking about the Generic TDictionary that comes with Delphi 2009, and the latest news with DevExpress.
Our guest today is Julian Bucknall, the Chief Technical Officer of DevExpress and the author Tomes of Delphi: Algorythms and Data Structures. We will be talking about the new generic containers in Delphi 2009 and how to use them.
In this episode we interview Barry Kelly who is one of the talented software engineers working on the Delphi compiler at Embarcadero’s CodeGear. We will discusses native code garbage collectors, generics, Anonymous methods and more.
This very special episode features an interview with Nick Hodges, the Delphi Product Manager for Embarcadero‘s CodeGear. A lot of great information and news on the changes with CodeGear and Delphi 2009. This one is a little bit longer at 38:46 with all that we covered in our interview. You will probably find it just flys by though.
It was a lot of work, but we have Episode 1 online.
This week I introduce you to the podcast and share some of the latest news on Tiburon. Nick Hodges has agreed to be interviewed for next week’s episode, so be sure to check back for that. Total run time is 18 minutes and 30 seconds since I know you are busy.
