    Jeff D? I remember Coriolis Books, which he seemed to have a lot to do with. Still have a few Coriolis books on my bookshelf in my (physical) library. I should take a few pictures and post them to my FB page…

    Hey Nick, just a warning for your readers: if you go to the amazon link and look up the author, you’ll see a picture of Jon Shemitz instead of Jeff Duntemann. It’s not your visual memory that’s faulty….

    Francois –

    Hehe — yeah, I noticed that, too. I tried to get an email to Jeff. Hopefully that will get fixed. :-)

    Any chance to have a real offline (.mp4, wmv) replay for "Extreme Cross-Platform .NET with Delphi Prism 2011" ? A cross-platform webinar requiring LiveMeeting sounds like a joke ;)

    I must say, after years of experience, I have gone off components. They never quite do what you need, or they do it in a way that goes against the concept of your application. Since you can only find that out by actually using them, you get to a point where you either press ahead regardless (and end up with code full of workarounds) or rip it out and start again with another.

    For long-term, serious projects, better to roll your own from the beginning. The time/productivity curve may be flatter initially, but it stays steady. With 3rd party components, it goes up fast but then flattens off.
