  • Now here’s a blog after my own heart:  Sadly, it hasn’t been updated in a while, and there are only a few articles, but what is there is really good.  There are four or five articles about Dependency Injection (particularly about how it doesn’t necessarily mean using a DI Container…..) and we’d all do well to read and heed. Thanks to Stefan Glienke for pointing me to it.
  • RAD Studio won the “Top Innovator: Developer Tools” at the Developer Week Conference.  Nice thing to see.
  • I wanted to strengthen my SQL skills, so I decided to give Head First SQL a try.  It was my first foray into the world of the Head First Series, and I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but what I got was a great review/tutorial on SQL.  The examples were simple but to the point, the style a touch irreverent but enjoyable, and I actually did, and learned from, the exercises.  Now I’m working on Head First Design Patterns which so far is the same: excellent, interesting, and attention-holding. I do believe that I'll seek out Head First titles in the future if I want to learn something new.
  • I’d like to put in another plug for the Google Plus Delphi Developers Community.  We’ve been having a lot of fun over there – or at least I have, maybe the rest of the folks are sick of me.  Winking smile  In any event, please stop by and participate.

A Pithy Quote for You

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and then bid the geldings to be fruitful."    –  C. S. Lewis
