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.


David Cornelius has been using Borland's software development tools since the mid-80's. He is the coordinator of the Oregon Delphi User Group and runs a contract software development business in Portland. Visit his web site at CorneliusConcepts.com for more information.

A lot has changed with Elevate Software's popular database engine since we last looked at it. With server procedures, scheduled server events, online backup and restore, Kylix support, custom SQL and filter functions, improved documentation, and much more, DBISAM 4 takes a great database product and makes it incredible!

BorCon 2004 Review

10/18/2004 6:30 pm

This year's Borland Conference was, as usual, packed full of information and previews. Diamondback and SDO were just two of the buzzwords used this year. This presentation will bring you up-to-date on the latest technology from the Borland world.

Some specific items that will be presented include:

  • DiamondBack (the next release of Delphi)
    • hear about the new IDE and compiler features
    • see Diamondback in action
  • Is Kylix dead?
  • The Borland Roadmap and SDO


General Q-and-A / Stump the Programmer

09/30/2004 6:30 pm

Given the fact that I don't have time to put together another presentation and that people are probably tired of listening to me anyway, I'm just going to host a general question-and-answer period, a networking session if you will. We can combine that with attempts stump-the-programmer where anyone can give or take a challenge, man the keyboard and test their Delphi skills.

InnoSetup and GExperts - Increasing Productivity and Automating Builds

08/16/2004 6:30 pm

Many times when people talk about open source, they talk about Linux or having to download source archives, read lengthy HOWTOs and follow cryptic installation instructions. And when people want really easy-to-install and user-friendly tools, they often look first to high-priced ones from big-name companies. But there are two nearly indispensible products that many Delphi developers use which are not only user-friendly and easy to install, but also completely free!

On-line Resources / Rich Applications - A View Through the Eyes of the User

07/19/2004 6:30 pm

How do users perceive the difference between a rich application and an online resource? What processes should developers use to capture these differences? How are projects affected by the results of these processes? Leo Frishberg, a software developer, usability consultant, and user-centered designer, will talk about user-centered design in the context of the Web vs. the desktop. Using examples from projects in both environments, Leo will point out the similarities and differences in users' expectations, approaches, and behaviors when faced with an application or online resource.
