I’m in Prague already for the RAD Studio XE3 launch event tomorrow and in Bratislava on Thursday. The kind of energy that Delphi and C++Builder developers emit is incredible! Travelling is tiring, especially when your flights/trains are cancelled and you have to improvize, but you get it back in a big way!
In fact RAD Studio XE3 launch today in Brussels was one of the five live events today worldwide in the XE3 World Tour! XE3 is like a big storm and all the audience was so positive and happy! There is such a great alternative to Eclipse, XCode and Visual Studio… Visual LiveBindings! That’s the new, true advance to "rapid application development" invented almost 18 years ago with Delphi 1!
Go RAD Studio XE3! Multiply yourself! You only need to know one language, one framework, one IDE to rule them all! OSX Mountain Lion, Windows 8… All the latest stuff!
HTML5 Builder has been received very well and I know from past experiences that is not easy to show IDEs that are not native, compiled, to THESE guys… and they liked it! jQueryMobile Theme roller, working with HTML5 canvas gradients, local storage.. that was good. Plus FM2 with actions, gestures, "fat finger" (;-)), anchors, new "Metropolis UI" and premium styles… Stay tuned for more more tech posts:-)
Ski (or snow-board) hats was a big hit as well:-) Everybody loved them, as well as Delphi t-shirts. Goodies are very important for developers to show off in the office!
Watching now Poland working hard to qualify for Brazil 2014 and then off to bed for the XE3 launch in Prague tomorrow!!!
