Just back from Software Development Conference in Israel. There was probably around 600 attendees gathered in Hilton Tel Aviv hotel.
It is always great to meet existing, loyal Delphi developers. They are very happy with the latest versions of RAD Studio. At conferences like this it is also interesting to meet developers new to Delphi and C++Builder. Embarcadero message of "native multi-device development from one source code" resonates very well and developers love the possibility to build your application once, with visual reusable-components, using C++ or Object Pascal. New XE8 multi-device previews and FireUI form designer really shine.
My 30 minutes presentation of capabilities of RAD Studio XE8 was very well received and there were many detailed questions. As an example of a multi-device app, I have created XE8 version of my XE2 "Chemical Molecules Viewer". I’m still working on improving it and eventually deploying to app stores. The name is new as well: "Molecule Hero"!
Here is "Molecule Hero" app compiled for all supported platforms: Android, Windows, Mac and iOS!
All four apps are compiled natively from the very same Object Pascal code!
