The OpenDocument Format is hitting the headlines because of Massachusetts decision and an interesting petition to Microsoft.
My Borcon BOF Sessions
I'm going to moderate two BOF sesions at BorCon (next week) on AJAX and InstantObjects.
I'm at the Borland Conference... and here are my first impressions.
A day spent hearing tutorials... and preparing my own presentations.
Tod Nielsen, Borland CEO
Borland has a new CEO. He worked with developers and seems smart... first impression at Borcon was positive.
The Conference has started, with the intro keynote, Delphi 2006 presentations by R&D members, and more.
Another day at the conference, with me on stage with Boz at the keynote, and a couple of more talks done, plus a surpise for tomorrow.
The last day of the Borland Conference was not full of surprises, but the Spirit of Delphi Award was issued...
My BOF on Ajax
There was a lot of interested around the BoF session I presented at BorCon, from people who attended and many who missed it. AJAX is hot!
Delphi 2006, Italian Launch Event
Yesterday in Milan I took part in the Italian Delphi 2006 lauch event, presenting some of the new features of the product.
SOAP, REST, and the KISS rule
If SOAP is getting all headlines, I tend to prefer REST-based Web Services... not only because they are simpler, but also because they are more effective.
Software I use
You can tell a lot about a programmer from the software he uses. This is a list of what's on my PC, starting with Firefox.
BorCon 2005 Pictures
Pictures from the conferences are on my other site.
Busy with CF
I'm busy with a CF app... and going to travel and teach seminars.
