Member Applications

01/16/2006 6:00 pm

There will be no "formal" presentation, but we'll have a couple of laptops available and at least one member will be showing an application that "takes various text files as input, formats them into PDF invoices, statements, etc. and delivers them via email or fax to the customer." We'd be interested to see what others are working on as well, so please come and share.

Delphi 2006 Roadshow

Dexter is the next version of Delphi, Delphi 2006. It is a 64-bit compiler supporting the latest Win32 and .NET environments. Come learn about the next version of Pascal/C++/C# compilers from Borland and see ECO III in action (it's child's play!).

There will be give-aways, including a copy of Delphi 2006. You won't want to miss it!

ODUG Business Meeting

07/18/2005 6:09 pm

This month, instead of a technical presentation, we will meet to discuss how to increase membership and participation. This forum serves an important place in the development community, not only for Delphi developers, but for all programmers. However, with attendance dwindling over the last couple of years, the burden of getting good speakers has risen.

Chrome and RemObjects SDK

Alessandro Federici from RemObjects Software will present Chrome, the next generation Object Pascal language for the .NET and Mono platforms, and RemObjects Framework, the powerful RAD multi-tier solution.

3D Graphics with DirectX

04/18/2005 6:00 pm

Lights! Sounds! Monsters!

You know you've always wanted to be writing games instead of... whatever you're getting paid for at the moment. Tonight we'll look at doing graphics in Delphi. The talk will focus on using DirectX for Windows to create 3D graphics and the efforts of the JEDI team to make DirectX more accesable to Delphi programmers. We'll also touch on input (keyboard, joystick, etc.) and perhaps sound.

As for writing Doom 7... well, you have to start somewhere!


General Q-and-A / Project Timer

02/21/2005 6:00 pm

Because of dwindling attendance, it's been difficult to convince anyone to present to the group. Instead of a formal presentation, David Cornelius will be available with Delphi 5, 6, and 2005 for creating sample applications as the group's discussion leads.

General Q-and-A

01/17/2005 6:00 pm

With no specific agenda, but with 3 different versions of Delphi (5, 6, 2005) on my computer and several 3rd-party vendors, bring your questions or a CD of your project and we'll learn together.
