    Love this Jim – it made me literally LOL during the Code Rage presentations and it’s ever better because the code demonstrates some of the great features of Delphi too.

    amazing that you have an image of Delphi and then you speak about monkeys…
    Do you know sir where i can buy previous versions of delphi like XE2 or XE7 etc
    The price of Berlin is too expensive

  11. punctuation says:

    Actually he talks about “code monkey” because that’s a popular nickname for a software developer plus Delphi uses a system called “Fire Monkey” in later XE versions to provide cross-platform capabilities.

    If you purchase Berlin you get access to download previous versions of Delphi such as XE7 – but beyond that there is no other legitimate place to buy earlier versions.
