Welcome to Episode 27 of the Podcast at for Monday the 20th of April, 2009.

The episodes with Nick are always great ones, so I hope you enjoy it!  If there are other links I missed please add those in the comments.


DelphiLive! Speaker Series

DelphiLive! Speaker

Let me know if you have a specific speaker from DelphiLive! you would like interviewed on the podcast, and any specific questiosn you might have.  I’ve already contacted a few speakers at random,  but I am certainly open to interviewing all the speakers.  If you are a speaker then feel free to nominate yourself or just drop me an email.

With each speaker I plan to talk with them a little about their background, what they are up to, and what we can expect from their sessions.



Delphi UserVoice and DelphiLive!

I have been quite surprised at the amount of feedback and suggestions that have been submitted via UserVoice.  The way UserVoice works is everyone gets 10 votes to use until the things they voted on are either completed or deleted. I know Nick Hodges has been following it rather closely (and commenting), but thought it would be a good idea to actually go through the list of top requests with him and discuss which ones we might be expecting to see in the future, and delete any that are completely off topic.  This will free up more votes and also provides a little feedback on the process.  Don’t be expecting any hard dates, features or an official road map though. This is just a two way feedback process.

With the beta of Delphi “Weaver” possibly starting this month, I am sure its feature set is pretty fixed, but we already know there are big changes further down the road.

In addition to talking about UserVoice, as part of our road to DelphiLive! series I will be talking with Nick about his sessions at DelphiLive!, which includes his what’s cooking in the Delphi labs.  I’m sure he won’t give away all the details about what he will be sharing then, but I imagine we can get a little sampling.

So if you haven’t yet, head out to UserVoice and make some suggestions and vote for your favorites.  If you get them in before we record the podcast on Thursday then we might discuss them on the podcast.
