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 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.

 

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:

Windows 10 Anniversary Edition Support

October 24th, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero, Webinar No Comment yet

Good session from Marco Cantu on leveraging many of the new Windows 10 Features in RAD Studio.

Not least of these is the Windows Desktop Bridge support, allowing VCL and FMX Windows Desktop apps to be uploaded to the Windows App Store.

Delphi Migration

October 24th, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero, Webinar No Comment yet

Embarcadero have published the replay for their webinar on Migrating your Delphi codebase to new versions, covering:

  • 3rd Party Components
  • Unicode
  • Database Libraries

We’ve been working with several customers, helping them bring their existing Client/Server applications onto the cloud, with web and mobile front ends, and I can say from experience there are some very good tips in this webinar.

Which Keystore was used to sign this Android App?

October 13th, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero, Mobile No Comment yet

Recently we were doing some work on an existing RAD Studio Android app for a customer. Their previous developer had let them down so they’d brought it to us to do the next version.

Everything went smoothly until we needed to do an AppStore build. As part of this, you need to specify a keystore file that will be used to sign the APK. Fortunately they had the keystore file and password that the previous Developer had used. Unfortunately, they had two keystore files, and didn’t know which one had been used for the prior version.

This matters a lot, because if we used a different one, the Google Play store would view this as a brand new app, and not an updated version of the old app. That means their current users would not be prompted to download an update, and they would instead have to somehow get them to all uninstall the old one and install the new one.

Expired Apple Intermediate Certificates and RAD Studio iOS Development

October 10th, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero, Mobile 2 comments

Last week we were doing some updates for a customer on a C++Builder Android and iOS app. The Mac that we were using to do the code signing for iOS hadn’t been used for this before, so we needed to setup the Certificates and Provisioning Profiles for the customer’s account.

I always dread this part, as I’ve found it always takes longer and is more complicated than you expect. I’ve done it enough times now though that I thought I’d struck all the issues, however this time I found a new one that I thought I should document for anyone else (or my future self) who strikes it.

RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin Update 1 Cliff Notes

October 6th, 2016 Posted by Embarcadero No Comment yet

The dust has settled on the Berlin Update 1 release, so I wanted to pull together some of the information about it in one place:

First thing to know is yes, it does require a reinstall, but you should be able to do that without having to reinstall all your 3rd Party Components (make sure during the uninstall you select the option to retain your registry settings).

With that out of the way,

CodeInsightTV – Marco Cantu Interview Part 1

July 19th, 2016 Posted by CodeInsightTV, Embarcadero No Comment yet

At the RAD Studio launch in Berlin earlier this year I sat down for a wide-ranging chat with Marco Cantu, RAD Product Manager at Embarcadero. We covered a bunch of RAD Studio stuff obviously, both about Berlin and also the roadmap, but also some other technology topics outside Embarcadero, how he got started in development, the status of his books, etc. (more…)
