- Well, the next release of Delphi must be getting close. The Delphi Insider has information about Skill Sprints that will show some of the new features. Mitov Software has an interesting screen shot that looks like it has some sort of multi-view for mobile apps. Cool. Here’s a community post on what it is – the Multi-device Preview. The Code Sprint are showing off new features as well. Marco has a video about EMS Notifications. EMS is a very under-appreciated feature if you ask me.
- I endeavor to write clean code. I hope you do, too. One nice measure of that the Embarcadero has given us is “Can Castalia properly parse your code?”. I submit the following statement: If Castalia has trouble parsing your code, then the first place you should look to solve the problem is in your code. Code that gives Castalia – which has a pretty good parser – a hard time is maybe just a touch over complicated or not well formatted. Just a thought. Just my personal thought.
- I’m plugging away on my next book. Two areas that are giving me – ahem – “challenges” are the Parallel Library and MVVM. Coming up with good examples leads the difficulty. Just getting my head around all the stuff in the Parallel Library is proving difficult, I must confess. I don’t want to do any code with
Sleepin it, so finding a good example of code that take up time is hard. MVVM is proving difficult to find a good example using LIve Bindings, and actually doing the “true” MVVM way as defined by Rob Eisenberg. I also have to get this chapter past Stefan Glienke, too. Hehe. In any event, I promise by the time I publish, you’ll have a good solid chapter or two on those subjects that will make you smarter for reading them.
