David I… coming to Europe

For all of you who live on the "other side of the pond" be sure to check this out.  I certainly count myself as being very fortunate for having worked with David I throughout all my years here at Borland.  I’m also very excited that he’s joining the "DevCo" party!

Nigel hits the press.

"DevCo’s" venerable General Manager, Nigel Brown got a moment with Gavin Clarke of The Register, which resulted in this article.  A key statement that I know many of the loyal Delphi/BDS community will like is; "We won’t be speaking to CTOs except in rare instances," Brown said. What he’s saying is that "DevCo" will be about [...]

Still rolling along

Just an FYI for all the readers in the EMEA and APAC regions (that’s Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific).  Long time BDS/JBuilder/InterBase supporters Malcolm Groves (APAC) and Jason Vokes (EMEA) have now been confirmed as being firmly in the "DevCo" camp!  As we move forward in creating this new venture, there will be [...]

One Intern, Two Intern… Red Intern, Blue Intern…

As you can see from the title of this post, I’m going to talk about interns.  Part of the overall plan of "DevCo" going forward is to create a new environment and culture.  This includes providing a formal mechanism to bring in new, fresh talent to the team.  One of the most effective ways to [...]

Gaining momentum…

Even though there’s not much to talk about on the business side of the spin-out plans, there’s stuff to talk about on the “DevCo” product/team front. For the Delphi/C++Builder/JBuilder faithful out there, I’d like to announce some very exciting news.  In this post, I’d mentioned that we just had a new compiler engineer join the team.  This [...]

All’s quiet on the "DevCo" front…

There wasn’t an update last week on the DevCo spin out progress mainly because there wasn’t much to report.  Most of the activity has been shifted from working on all the business plans, business models, and related items to now taking that information and creating a management presentation.  This presentation is expected to be given to the relatively few [...]

Getting VCL/.NET ready for .NET 2.0 and 64bit CLR

Changes, my friends, are afoot.  While waiting for the Delphi/.NET compiler (dccil) to embrace all the latest goodies in the CLR world (partial types, generics, nullable types, anonymous methods, etc…) other engineers have been working on a lot of things that are independent of all the new compiler goodness.  The biggest change that is going to [...]

"DevCo" - 1 year after spin out announcement…

It’s been a really tough week.  We’re still having meetings about the financial models and the details therein.  Here’s a quick recap of this week’s business; Monday:  We got word this morning that Borland was going to retain all rights to “TObject!”  This was a major blow to the process. Tuesday:  This meeting centered around determining the incremental [...]
