Summer Books

"It’s always better to have too much to read than not enough."
-- Ann Patchett
Six months ago it was "reading by the fire" weather and now it's "reading on the patio in the shade" weather. Either way, it's always fine weather for reading.

New Books for a New Year

"Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light."
-- Vera Nazarian

Happy (belated) New Year!

And what better way to spend those cold, wintry days than in front of a fire with a nice book? Or more than one...

Oh Look, Another Book!

"The odd thing about people who had many books was how they always wanted more."
-- Patricia A. McKillip 

Oh for crying out loud!

I just got finished writing about two new Delphi books and someone else throws their hat in the ring. It's like you can't turn around without tripping over another one of these things.

Books - But Wait, There's More!

"Books are the training weights of the mind."
-- Epictetus

I found two new Delphi books. One that I've been looking forward to for a long time and another one that I just learned about.

Keep 'em coming...

Software made with Delphi. How do you know?

How many times have we heard someone talking about how Delphi was used to make one piece of software or another or that it's being used by some well known company?

It happens all the time.

Of course, the obvious first question is "How do you know?"

Something something Delphi, something Hanselman...

Ah, the age-old question; Who is still using Delphi?

As it turns out, the original answer still applies; Lots of people.

Getting Started with Delphi

Delphi celebrated its 22nd anniversary in February and a lot of the developers who make up the Delphi programming community have been using it for a long time. I think that just speaks to their good judgement.

At the same time, I'm pleasantly surprised to see people asking how to get started with Delphi or where to find entry level information. I thought it might be worth collecting some of this information in one place instead of re-posting individual links over and over again.
