I'm a Delphi developer. 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 am actively in Stack Overflow monitoring the Delphi tag, and looking for those questions I can answer and also contributing my time to keep Stack Overflow in order. I'm not an expert in anything, a jack of all trades rather. But I love to help people when I'm able to.

I've known Delphi since about 2007 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.

Since then I've also become vaguely familiar with ASP.NET with C#, as well as some C# windows apps. But I'm not too fond of the whole .NET idea. .NET is good for web platforms and such, but not for win apps.

My latest work has been with Delphi XE7 mobile development. I'm still very raw on the subject, but see a huge potential behind it.

My strengths:

  • Understanding the bigger picture of projects
  • Writing Custom Classes, Components, and Controls
  • Code organization (within unit or namespace)
  • Writing purely independent classes (as opposed to cross-referencing units or namespaces)
  • User Friendly UI's
  • Developer Friendly Classes
  • Encapsulating layers of business logic

My weaknesses:

  • Using or Building custom API's
  • Lower-level coding (such as Assembly)
  • Multithreading
  • Modern UI graphics

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. Unfortunately, it's offline at this time, with no intention of bringing it back online any time soon. I have a number of websites which I wish I was able to host and continue developing.

It's always nice to know you're able to do something, even if you never use it.
