Delphi, C++ and InterBase Community

I’m sure some of you have seen the new Delphi, C++ and InterBase community platform that is being developed at Embarcadero. If not I would highly recommend a visit.

The Embarcadero Community is the new home to blogs, event diaries, latest news and features articles. While the old locations are still working, over time expect to see more and more on the community. Community is also social media ready with links for Facebook, Twitter, linkedIn and Google+

Free FireDAC training online

FireDAC Training

Free FireDAC training online!

FireDAC is the Universal Data Access library for developing applications for multiple devices, connected to enterprise databases.

Starting tomorrow you can join the embarcadero team for free FireDAC training online in these special sessions, where you will be taken from a beginner to an expert by showing you how to utilise FireDAC in multiple situations.

Having used multiple database technologies over the years of developing with Delphi, I have been exceptionally impressed by the raw power of FireDAC and how fast and easy it makes the most difficult jobs as a database developer.

Embarcadero Acquires Castalia and Usertility from TwoDesk Software

I did a blog post recently about Castalia which includes a video demoing some of the additional features Castalia adds to super charge the RAD Studio IDE.

Having played with it for over a month now, I’m really excited that it will have tighter integration in the future following the announcement yesterday that Castalia has been acquired by Embarcadero.

In addition to the news on Castalia, Usertility has also being acquired. This brings some exciting possibilities for the future around analytics and I can’t wait to see what happens further with this powerful add-on. Can’t wait to see how this fits into the single code base native IoT and multi-device development that we have today!
