Delphi’s 29th Anniversary Webinar Replay And Slides

delphi is 29 title copy

Well, that was a lot of fun! We just had an amazing “not your usual webinar” event where we celebrated the anniversary of 29 years since the release of Delphi. We covered all the sorts of things you would expect with a great presentation of the history of Delphi 1 by Marco Geuze of GDK Software as well as a look through some of the less usual things Developer Advocates like myself get up to on our days off, including being zapped by a 20,000 volt Tesla coil, and a sword fight, wearing Delphi helmets between myself and Jim McKeeth (who also now is director of GDK USA). We also had a lively round-table discussion between Marco, Jim, and I along with MVP and author extraordinaire Dr Holger Flick. We also announced the winner of The 2023/2024 Spirit Of Delphi Award. We’ll post about that elsewhere, or you can watch the replay to find out now!

Turbo Pascal 40th Birthday Fun

The very much-loved Turbo Pascal also recently enjoyed its 40th Birthday. The guests and I talked about this ground-breaking release and the impact it had on the world of software development in general. There is also some interest in the community to try and revive the Turbo Vision library and compile it for the modern age, “just because”. More on this another time but here’s my own re-interpretation of the original Turbo Pascal IDE user interface, redone in RAD Studio 12 as a cross-platform FireMonkey app!
