Pragmatic_MVVM_Workshop

Pragmatic MVVM at DAPUG Workshop in Denmark

March 28th, 2017 Posted by Embarcadero, Events, News No Comment yet

I’m really looking forward to presenting a two day workshop on MVVM in RAD Studio for DAPUG in Denmark next month.

The MVVM sessions I’ve done in the past have all been around 45 minutes long, which is barely enough time to scratch the surface. Two full days will give us plenty of time to get right down into the details of how to build maintainable, testable applications without throwing away all the productivity of RAD.

We’ll build an MVVM application from scratch over several “sprints”, each one focussed on a different area of functionality, and along the way we’ll go deep on issues like LiveBindings, Persistence, Messaging, and more. After two days you should come away feeling very equipped to apply MVVM in your own code.

Full details and registration form is available here.

RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo ISO’s and other downloads

March 23rd, 2017 Posted by Embarcadero No Comment yet

As Marco has just outlined in a post on his blog, RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo has been released. We’ve just finished the Sydney and Melbourne events and the reception, especially around 64 bit Linux support and RAD Server has been very good.

The new web installer, which I have found over the last few versions to be the fastest way to install is available here. However, I know many people like to also have a copy of the ISO available as a backup. The ISO’s have now been uploaded to codecentral and are available for registered user’s to download as well. In addition, there are downloads for various additional tools that have been updated for Tokyo.

Godzilla Preview

RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo Preview event in Australia

March 9th, 2017 Posted by Embarcadero, Events, News 2 comments

Come and be amongst the first to see Delphi for Linux in Australia, when we hold the RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo Preview events in Sydney, Melbourne and online.

There are more details over on the registration page, but the first half will be non-Linux topics, like deploying to the Windows 10 App Store, while the second half we’ll drill into developing, debugging and deploying web apps and middle tier services to Linux.

In addition, we’ve organised to have some giveaways of Arduino Nano + NodeMCU IOT Kits in each city. These are the same kits used in the recent IoT Boot Camp, including a bunch of sensors and everything else you need to follow along with the replays and start experimenting with connecting RAD Studio apps to IoT hardware.

Spaces are limited in both cities, so please register quickly. If you can’t make it to the events, we’ll also be streaming the Sydney event online, so register for the Online event and we’ll send out the login details closer to the day.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

TMS Aurelius: “Is my Entity Reference still valid after I save?” and other related questions.

March 1st, 2017 Posted by Embarcadero, TMS 2 comments

I realise I’ve been very quiet on the Aurelius front. Not because I’m not using it, far from it actually. I’m using it heavily with and without MVVM, on the desktop and mobile, and even on the serverside behind RAD Server. I made a vow during an ORM presentation last year to never write another line of SQL again, and while I’ve occasionally broken that vow, I don’t think I’ve written a SQL statement in Delphi code since then.

Anyway, I do plan on writing more about Aurelius, it’s on my (large) todo list, but in the meantime, I’ve had questions from multiple people that all seem to come back to the same root issue: understanding how the Aurelius TObjectManager takes responsibility for managing your object’s lifecycle.

I’ve found the best way to make this clear is to write a little test app, so here it is. (more…)

IoTBootCamp

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…)

Webinar-Roundtable

Embarcadero Roundtable Discussion with Atanas Popov, Nick Hodges and Malcolm Groves

February 9th, 2017 Posted by Embarcadero, Events, News No Comment yet

We’ve worked with Embarcadero to get a special Asia Pacific webinar scheduled.

Atanas Popov (Embarcadero General Manager), Nick Hodges (Director of Product Management) and our own Malcolm Groves will be presenting a Roundtable webinar and Q&A. Up for discussion will be Embarcadero’s strategy, new product initiatives, as well as the product roadmaps and plans.

This is a great opportunity to both hear direct from the people driving the direction of RAD Studio, as well as throw your questions into the mix.

The webinar will take place next Tuesday, the 14th of February (22 years since a rather important product launch) at 9am Sydney time.

Registration and more details here.

Embarcadero Webinars in Asia-Friendly timezone

January 30th, 2017 Posted by Embarcadero, Events, News No Comment yet

After feedback from a number of customers, we’ve worked with Embarcadero to get a third timezone added to the regular webinars. This works out to be 1pm Sydney time, so should make it easier for those who want to attend live but need to do it during business hours.

If you haven’t seen the schedule, you can check it out here and register for any that interest you. During the sessions we’ll be answering any questions you have, so we look forward to seeing you online.

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…)
