Delphi 11 Alexandria: compiler speed comparison

In a few of hours I’ll present the new RAD Studio 11 Alexandria to the italian Delphi and C++Builder developers community (register page here). Even if it’s only an on-line meeting due to the pandemic, it’s always a nice event where we can talk together about the new features introduced in the tools we use (and, most of the time, love).

"DelphiMVCFramework - the official guide" available as hardcopy

It takes more than I expected, but finally the reference guide for DMVCFramework is finally available as hardcopy on Lulu. The book content is the same of the last e-Book version, so it is targeted to the current stable version dmvcframework-3.2.1-carbon. I was thinking to wait to publish the hardcopy version until the new dmvcframework-3.

My Top 3+1 features in the new RAD Studio 11 Alexandria

Yes, RAD Studio 11 Alexandria is finally out - now we can talk about it :-) This new release builds on the feature set of 10.4.x, enhancing existing features throughout the product. However it adds some notable features for all the feature set. Starting from the (IMHO) nicer new splash screen - clean, polished with red on grey.

"DMVCFramework - the official guide" translated in Spanish

The spanish version of “DMVCFramework - the official guide” is available. Currently the translation is completed at 80%, however using the “incremental publishing” offered by LeanPub, you can buy the book before the completition and get all the updates that will be available in the future. As already happens with the english and the portuguese versions, there will be updates even after the completition because the framework, obviously, is evolving.

Slides and demos from DelphiCon2020: Powering the Web with Delphi

The “Powering the Web with Delphi” session at DelphiCon 2020 has been a success in terms of number of participants with a lot of questions for me the the other guys in the session. All my slides and samples from the talk are publicly available on this Github repo You will find the slides and the source code of the following demos:

DelphiCon2020: Powering the Web with Delphi

I’m happy to present DMVCFramework as part of the “Powering the Web with Delphi” session at DelphiCon 2020. The session will be held November 19, 2020, 5:00 pm CET. During the session I’ll briefly show how to create some kind of APIs in Delphi using DMVCFramework, and how to use them from Delphi and, just to choice one other language, on Python.

How not to handle large files in GitHub

What’s the problem? As you probably know GitHub has a strict file limit of 100MB. If you are just uploading lines of codes probably you don’t need to worry about it. However, if you want to upload a bit of data, or graphic projects, or something in binary, this is a limit that you might want to cross.

My Top 3+1 "News" in RAD Studio 10.4.1 Sydney

This new release builds on the feature set of 10.4, enhancing existing features throughout the product. As you probably know, the first version of the 10.4 family have been some “problems” here and there, but Embarcadero fixed a lot of things and add even more value in the product.

Introduzione a DMVCFramework 3.2 boron

Il 13 marzo 2020, in piena emergenza Covid-19, scrivevo su Facebook: Ciao a tutti, in questi momenti complicati di segregazione forzata vorrei organizzare qualcosa che possa essere utile a qualcuno. Avevo in mente di farlo da qualche tempo, ma tra un impegno e un altro non sono mai riuscito a trovare il tempo di organizzarlo concretamente.

ITDevConX - The Delphi European Conference

ITDevCon reached its 10th edition in 2019! 10 is a nice number. Seems yesterday when me and my friend and colleague Fabrizio Bitti were at a “YET ANOTHER CONFERENCE” and looking each others in the eyes, we told each other: “We can do better”. I don’t know if we really always did better, but now ITDevCon is a strong presence in the Delphi (and not only) field.
