BorCon Lite: Keynote by Ray Konopka

Ray Konopka started off the day with a great keynote. One of his beginning slides looked like this:

Delphi or .NET?

   Single inheritance object hierarchy
   Strongly typed
   Format concept of properties and events
   Consistent use of exceptions
   Reusable and extensible component model
   Formal notion of class interfaces
   Special DLLs containing metadata (RTTI) and code
   WinForms (VCL)

Ray's major point is that Delphi developers are already very familiar with .NET, whether they know it or not.
