Random Thoughts on the Passing Scene #155

30 Apr
  • Delphi Prism 2011 is coming soon, and you can read more about it at SDTimes.  Or maybe you are more of an InfoWorld guy and want to read their article about it
  • If you are a RemObjects customer, you might be interested in testing their Public Chat system.
  • As part of my “Pretty Good Practices” series, I talked just a bit about naming conventions.  One of the commenters pointed out this classic EDN article by Charlie Calvert that outlines a “Style Guide” for writing code.  I want to stress that I’m a firm believer that there is no one true way to style your code. I have a way I like to do it, but your way is great, too. The important thing is to have a set of rules and stick to them.
  • For everybody who reads our newsgroups via NNTP:  Make sure that your newsgroup reader is pointed to and not to a * address. 
  • The Delphi for PHP “look aheads” done by Jose continue apace.  There are a lot of cool things coming out of those videos.  Give them a look.

    Hi Nick,

    I dont think that the link attached to "The Delphi for PHP "Look aheads"" has anything to do with PHP.

    But, it is good that you are checking on stack overflow Delphi questions. :)

    I wish you guys success with all of this.
    Prism is pretty cool. However, I’m in need of a native Delphi for Linux right now. Our software runs on Atoms, therefore we don’t have too much excess power to spare. I’m looking into Qt now. Qt is pretty awesome, but I’d still prefer Object Pascal for readability and especially for its short compile/link cycle.

    No! No! Delphi needs an offical Code Style guide! I dont want to see bad styled coded any more which hurt my eyes. "Quality styled" code Helps beginners, too. bad formatted code posted on forums, blogs, etc. does not help delphi as a great language.

    Why don’t you look at the Lazarus and Free Pascal? You can leverage your existing Delphi skills and build an linux app with no time.
