Embarcadero 2018/19 Roadmap Update

August 8th, 2018 Posted by Embarcadero, News No Comment yet

Product management at Embarcadero have published more details of the 2018/19 Roadmap.

Covering topics such as RAD Studio 10.3, codenamed Carnival (hmmm, no prizes for guessing the city name for that release. I guess Wagga Wagga will have to wait for 10.4 maybe?), FireMonkey Native Controls, Platform support, VCL and Windows Changes, RAD Server changes, language and debugger changes and more.

Also pleasing to see mention that they have licensed Andreas Hausladen’s excellent IDE Fix Pack and are rolling more of those fixes into the core product.

The full post is here, and it’s definitely worth a read through if you’re a RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder or RAD Server user.

RAD Server Performance Improvements

July 23rd, 2018 Posted by Embarcadero, News No Comment yet

Marco recently posted details of a patch to RAD Server 10.2.3 that in his tests has boosted performance significantly.

The optimisations cover a few areas, including:

  • memory manager config more appropriate for heavy multithreading
  • processing improvements
  • streamlined license checking

Web Development with ExtJS for Delphi Developers

March 8th, 2018 Posted by Embarcadero, News, Sencha No Comment yet

We’re teaming up with Embarcadero to hold an event around ExtJS, the very cool web dev framework that came through the Sencha acquisition.

The aim of the event is to show RAD Studio developers how they can leverage ExtJS to extend their Delphi and C++Builder code onto the web. To get you over that initial learning curve so you can start experimenting. One of the nice things about ExtJS, unlike React or Angular, is that it works in a similar way to the VCL and FireMonkey, so RAD developers usually get comfortable very quickly. (more…)

Join Code Partners and help us build Amazing Software

January 19th, 2018 Posted by News No Comment yet

Our Services business is growing nicely, and as a result we’re hiring several experienced RAD Studio developers to work on our customer projects.

The job description is below, but I want to highlight that location is not that important. We’re much more interested in your attitude, experience and creativity than your GPS coordinates. Our team is currently spread across Australia, Asia and Europe, and that’s working just fine for us.

So if you want to work on interesting Delphi and C++Builder projects, covering desktop, mobile, web and the serverside, then read on.

RAD Studio 10.2.2 Released

January 9th, 2018 Posted by Embarcadero, News No Comment yet

Embarcadero have released RAD Studio 10.2.2 (what would have been called Update 2 in the old days). They actually did this back in December, but I’ve held off posting as their was an issue with the initial release they needed to fix. Now that’s done (and we’re back from the New Year break) I thought I’d better post about it.

Where to get it?

Sarina has a post up with links to downloads for the ISO and Web Installers. Remember to retain your component settings when uninstalling 10.2, or use the Settings Migration Tool to export them and import them into 10.2.2.

What’s in it?

There’s a mixture of bug fixes and new features. The full list of publicly reported bugs that have been addressed is here.

The new features fall into a few major groups: (more…)

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.

 

Introducing SubHub

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.

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.

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…)

CodeInsightTV – Foresiight and RAD Server

July 5th, 2016 Posted by CodeInsightTV, Embarcadero 1 comment

Foresiight are a longtime Delphi user in Brisbane, Australia. Over the years they’ve been very successful with a Delphi-based, client server solution aimed at the Retail space.

However, in the last 12 months they’ve been doing some really interesting things with RAD Server, extending their existing Delphi codebase to become a cloud-based, multi-store system, incorporating a web front-end (using Angular) as well as their existing Delphi front-end, talking REST back to RAD Server.
