Delphi Prism Partner DVD - calling all .NET component vendors

The Delphi Prism beta is in full force! We're previewing at PDC! :)

We're also doing a Partner DVD for Delphi Prism. Invites to participate in the program have been sent to all Technology Partners. If you didn't get an invite, and you are a component vendor that would like to support Delphi Prism by submitting your components for the Delphi Prism Partner DVD - please send me an email and I'll get it taken care of.


PDC and Delphi Prism

I'm at San Jose airport on the free WiFi network, and noticed that our press release is up just in time for PDC - see you there!

Delphi Prism, PDC and EKON12

It was my great pleasure to be interviewed by Jim McKeeth - The Podcast at Delphi.Org - today. You'll have to listen to the whole show to hear everything we had to say, but I'll just add my piece to the Delphi Prism buzz... ;)

Delphi Prism will be a new .NET solution from Embarcadero Technologies. In this Visual Studio based solution you'll be able to use your existing Delphi programming skills to build .NET applications taking advantage of the latest and greatest .NET 3.5 technologies such as WinForms, WPF, Silverlight and ASP.NET. You will of course also be able to develop database applications using familiar functionality.

Nick and I will be at PDC in Los Angeles at the end of the month showing off Delphi Prism, and David I will be doing the same at EKON12 in Frankfurt, Germany.

CodeRage III: Speakers and talks rolling in at a mind boggling pace...

Don't let that scare you. Keep'em coming. If you have submitted suggestions to me and haven't heard back from me - don't fret. You'll hear from me shortly. ;)

Oh, BTW: Delphi Programming - ask Jim McKeeth why I put that in here... :)

CodeRage III : Call for Speakers

Embarcadero Developer Relations is pleased to announce that we're planning on having the 3rd installment of CodeRage during December 1-5, 2008!

This will be a virtual event like past CodeRages. It will most likely run 7am-3pm 5am-12pm and 2pm-8pm for those five days - PST time zone - so about 60 hours of pure technical content. If we fill 2 tracks it'll be upwards of 120 hours!

Don't worry - we are planning a face-to-face conference as well, but we're doing this one first.

Please respond to me with any and all topics that you would like to present, as well as preferred time slots. If I don't already know you, please include a little about yourself and why you'd be an awesome CodeRage III speaker.

The faster you respond, the faster I can get you on the schedule - I won't put a deadline on this Call for Speakers for now, but I will post again once we get close to filled up.

Please feel free to discuss this in the Conferences forum.

Thanks a million for your support!
