I'm mainly a Delphi dev. I work for a software company which does solutions for retail management, including inventory, POS, reporting, BI, Tags, and more. It's been in Delphi since Delphi's been around.
I've known Delphi for about 4 years now, and before that, I had learned VB6. I havn't gone back to VB since I learned Delphi. I also taught myself QBasic and HTML as a kid. It hasn't been until the past 5 years that I've been diving into programming.
I have no official education in programming, other than an introductory class in High School to Visual Basic 6. After that class, I taught myself VB6 for a while, until I laid my eyes on Delphi. Since then, I've aborted anything I've written in VB and gone to Delphi.
- Delphi 7 - XE2 - Primary
- SQL Server 2000+ - Intermediate
- ASP.NET - Learning
- C# (with ASP.NET) - Learning
- C# Windows Apps - Rarely
- VB6 - First language, Never
Some of my projects:
- Image Loader Component - Loads images in threads, and maintains a cache for performance
- Server/Client Command Sockets - Custom TCP sockets with login, cookies, etc.
- Chat/Messenger Server/Client component suite - everything needed to build a chat system - all non-visual functionality for managing chat server/client.
- Customizable needle gauge - flexible gauge control for multiple needles, tick marks, etc.
- Fast drawing graph similar to the ones in the Windows Task Manager
- Remote Desktop Surveillance System - View/control numerous desktops at once through central server
- More components include a 3D label, glass label, glass button, glass form (otherwise a glass drawing library), and other simple visual controls.
- More apps include alarm clocks, NFL game betting system, jukebox, and more.
- A few websites including the one posted to the left (needs updating)
- Understanding the bigger picture of projects
- Writing Custom Classes
- Code organization (within unit)
- Writing purely independent classes (as opposed to cross-referencing)
- User Friendly GUI's
- Developer Friendly Classes
- Implementing a Database
- Using and Building API's
- Defining proper types (such as when to use PChar vs. String)
- Lower-level coding (such as ASM)
- Originally structuring projects to make expansion easy
PS - My noted website is 100% purely coded my myself in C#, and is my core testing grounds for web development - which I have a lot of brushing up to do.
It's always nice to know you're able to do something, even if you never use it.
