IoT Boot Camp Compilation

February 13th, 2017 Posted by Embarcadero, IoT No Comment yet

Last week Embarcadero ran their IoT Boot Camp over 4 days of very well received sessions. However, they were not in an ideal timezone for many people in Asia, so I thought I’d pull together the recordings and other materials in a single post to make it easy for people to work through them.

Each day’s session builds on the previous, but the nice thing is you can stop whenever you’ve learned enough. If you know someone who doesn’t use RAD Studio but just wants to learn about coding Arduino, point them at Day 1. If you want to go a step further and integrate with RAD Studio, but have no plans to scale this out, stop after Day 2. Or stay for the whole thing and see how you can go from cool experiment to supported business solution.  (more…)

Setting up Fedora Server for the RAD Studio on Linux Beta

December 23rd, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero 1 comment

Jim McKeeth has posted a couple of articles about getting Linux set up for the RAD Studio on Linux beta. In Part 1 he mentions you can use either Red Hat\Fedora or Ubuntu, and then in Part 2, he shows the steps to follow for Ubuntu Server.

However, those steps won’t work if you’re using Fedora, so below I’ve taken his steps and altered them to work on Fedora: (more…)

Introducing SubHub

December 12th, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero 1 comment

Sample applications are a dual-edged sword. When you’re starting out with some new technology, you want them small and focussed, so you can learn just the single thing you’re trying to learn without getting distracted by unrelated bits.

However, once you know how the individual technologies work, the real question becomes about how you should combine them to build something larger so that it will be performant, maintainable, stable, etc. At this point small sample apps are useless, you want something more “real world”.

I’ve been thinking about this for RAD Server recently. We’ve been doing a number of RAD Server projects for customers, however none of them are applications we can share. What I really wanted, I decided, was a customer to come along who was happy to publicly share all the details about the app we built them. Unsurprisingly, those customers are not that common.

Code Partners at Yow 2016 Sydney

December 7th, 2016 Posted by Events, News No Comment yet

Summer in Australia is Tech Conference season. We had DevOpsDays Sydney last week, and this week it’s time for my favourite conference of the year: Yow.

Every year I attend Yow I come away feeling like I’ve had my brain stretched in several new directions and wishing that I could skip sleep for the next month to try out everything I’ve learned. (more…)

DevOpsDays Sydney 2016

December 7th, 2016 Posted by DevOps, Events, News 1 comment

Several members of the Code Partners team were at the Sydney DevOpsDays last week.

If you’ve never been, DevOpsDays events are volunteer organised conferences where there are scheduled speakers in the morning, but the afternoon is broken up into what they refer to as Open Spaces. In Sydney there were 3 or 4 Open Space rooms, and each day people would stand up and propose topics. Proposing a topic doesn’t mean necessarily you have to present it, it may be more that you hope other people will also want to have a general discussion on the same topic. Then the attendees get to vote, and the most popular sessions get allocated to rooms. (more…)

RAD Server: Learning Resources

November 14th, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero 1 comment

Over the last 6 months we’ve seen a big increase in interest around RAD Server. In most cases it has been driven by people taking existing Delphi Client Server apps and extending them into the cloud, enabling them for Mobile and/or Web, but at the same time, breathing new life into code bases that in some cases they had previously thought were legacy.

Huh? A whole Webinar for an Update Pack?

November 11th, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero No Comment yet

In case you missed Embarcadero’s Update 2 Webinar the other day, the replay is now available (see below).

You may think an update is not worthy of a webinar, but Embarcadero are continuing their move to include more than just bug fixes in update packs, and Update 2 includes some significant new features, such as:
