Visiting Alabama

I've been on a trip to the US last week, and quite busy, so I didn't post to the blog for quite long. Trying to catch up now, but first a short summary of the trip.

I've been on a trip to the US last week, and quite busy, so I didn't post to the blog for quite long. Trying to catch up now, but first a short summary of the trip.

Last week I was for 5 days consulting in Birmingham, Alabama, at OneDomain. Very nice and successful company, fully focused on Delphi, and looking forward to migrate to XE2 and a DataSnap architecture. This was my second visit, since I had already been there a few years ago, and I really enjoyed it. Since I had to spend the Sunday in the US, I took the opportunity for a (free) stop over in New York (I thiink I'm getting quite good at buying flights, could set up a travel agency if things go wrong in software). As you can see from the images below, I had time for a short visit to Manhattan downtown, nice under an inch of snow. From left to right, "Construction at WTC", "Under Brooklyn Bridge", "Defenses at Wall Street", "Statue of Liberty from Battery Park". 

    

After that I flew to Atlanta, and from there I drove a nice car (thanks to another good offer) to Birmingham. Spent a full week training and consulting (see images below) in a great weather, and had a little time for shopping Lego for kids. From left to right: "Car in front of Office", "Training", "Training", "Food break", "Shopping for Lego".

PS. My next US trip will be for Delphi Developer Days 2012. Want to join our Delphi classes? Visit  http://www.delphideveloperdays.com/

Since you enjoyed your visit, come back again... 

I was sad to see your Developer Days does not include
a trip to the Southeast US.  I'd love to see some
classes in Atlanta.  (My neck of the woods...)

Tom,

Washington DC is not that far from Atlanta. But you are 
right, we have never been to Southeast US with the tour. 
Might consider for the future.

I'm a long travel Delphi developer, since 1995, Delphi 
1. I love this language, but I'm afraid seeing Delphi 
developers are mostly +45 as myself. I would like to see 
young people in yours pictures ...

The guy who took the picture will be 69 in April so he
was not allowed to be in it.  :-)

Really, young people have to learn, through the School
of Hard Knocks that, following the "latest and
greatest" is not good, and that the established,
matured and evolving Delphi is the fastest way to
develop for Win32 (and now other platforms).  If they
don't learn, more business for us old foggies. :-)
