FireMonkey is busy;-)
I’m just back from Belgium where I was presenting FireMonkey, Delphi and RAD Studio XE2 in Lier at the event organized by Embarcadero-Benelux and PeopleWare. PeopleWare work closely with Embarcadero providing Delphi expertise to customers in Belgium.
There are a lot discussions among developers which technologies to choose and to me it is becoming clear that there is nothing like native C++ and Delphi development for mobile and desktop.
For anything else there is FireMonkey, which is truly a technology available on the market today, which is clearly ahead of the competition. Think: native apps compiled from the same source code to Windows, Mac OSX and iOS!
It took 10 minutes to create from scratch a star-field simulation program and compile it for all these platforms!
It is such a great fun to be able to use Delphi XE2 running in Windows virtual machine and deploy applications directly to iPad and iPhone!
