The state of Delphi

Last week, three separate people asked my opinion on Delphi and which version they should be using for ongoing development.

Moar Books!

"Happiness is downtime with a good book"

The topic of Delphi books has come up again, and I thought an update might be in order.

Intersection of Art and Technology

I learned something interesting this weekend.

Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is a Mexican born artist based in Montreal, Quebec. He specialises in "interactive installations", which invite spectators to interact (hence the name) with the exhibits and with each other, effectively making them part of the show. The results can be visually stunning and thought provoking. His site includes images and videos from dozens of projects. So far, my favourite is probably Nave Solar.

That's pretty cool by any standard, but what really caught my attention was the hardware. Or, more specifically, the software used to control that hardware. A lot of which was written in-house using Delphi. This has to be one of the most unique and interesting uses that I've seen, and it warms my heart a little that it's happening in Canada.

And they're hiring.
