Flotsam and Jetsam #86

  • Delphi XE7 Update 1 is available.  Nice. The release notes have the link to where you can get it.
  • I’d like to thank the great staff at EKON 18 for a great conference and a great trip.  It was fun (despite the fact that I lost my phone and felt like a lost puppy without it).  The conference was interesting, and I got to see old friends like Ray Konopka, Cary Jensen and Loy Anderson, Marco Cantu, and Sebastian Gingter.  It was a great conference, and I was honored to be a speaker.  Thanks to everyone who came to my talks.
  • I also presented at another great CodeRage.  I talked on enumerators and IEnumerable<T> from the Delphi Spring Framework.   The replays are available online – or at least many of them are as they post them. I see that currently mine isn’t – I think that’s because I have to redo the Q&A portion.  Stay tuned.
  • Book Update:  An e-book version of Coding in Delphi is available to you free – all you have to do is activate the trial of XE7.  Good deal, eh?
  • Apparently Delphi had a small but important role in the ESA Rosetta Project – you know, that spacecraft that actually landed on a comet.  Pretty cool. 

Testing My New Code Formatter

I am using the Crayon Code Highlighter.  Let’s see how it works:

Looks pretty good I think.
