Delphi Boot Camp add’s YouTube and Facebook streams to service demand.
Today was very exciting in the Embarcadero offices. Developers have been registering for Delphi Boot Camp in their thousands, with over 1000+ registering in the last weekend alone.
Having all this interested in Delphi is awesome, but also has raised quite a challenge for the team delivering Boot Camp due to physical viewing limitations in GoToWebinar. The decision was taken last week that we should add additional ways to stream this out to the 1000’s who were going to attend and Jim McKeeth started off looking into YouTube and Facebook streaming.
This morning, all attendees received an update email with the multiple streaming options included. During the first of the two live daily sessions we have seen huge numbers viewing on both Facebook and YouTube.
If you couldn’t get into GoToWebinar, either try the second session or watch the replay on YouTube later, keep an eye on community for the replays.
If you did watch the Boot Camp on YouTube, thank you to everyone who joined in with such fun discussions. (my personal favourite question was “So can I talk to Dolphins with this?” – I’ve seen some cool delphi apps, but that would be a nice hardware integration project) Please let us know what you think about these medias for the future.
You can also use the Starer Edition to qualify for upgrade pricing to RAD Studio or Delphi Pro / Enterprise or Architect editions. And with the mobile add on pack included along with the bonus pack, now is a great time to do that.
