comment When do you start documenting the code?
He does say why - because its unlikely they'd go back and document. I think thats probably an accurate assessment for most projects. Its less dull to document as you code.

comment How to deal with Project Leader who doesn't involve himself in project in any way?
Now thats what I call delegating! On the other hand, he sounds like he's out of your hair. That could be a good thing.

comment Can You Make An Entire Website With JavaScript?
tedious isnt the best word, I guess. Perhaps 'demanding', in that it requires a sophisticated understanding of javascript, plus a good understanding of HTML, AJAX, DOM, etc. From a pure programmer's standpoint, it might be conceptionally easier to build an app via code, esp if one is familiar with building desktop apps since the paradigm is so similar.

comment How is Delphi XE2 going to work across platforms?
They have not explicitly said Win64 and Mac will be native code - but they havent said otherwise, and Delphi has always been native code. They have the resources and extensive know-how in building compilers, so I see no reason to think it'd be anything other than native code. That being said, I've not seen anything official that says Mac support will be in this version - just Win64. Though I'd be very glad to be wrong about that. FireMonkey is a set of user interface components for non-standard, flash-like interfaces.

comment How is Delphi XE2 going to work across platforms?
It'll be compiled native code, like it is on windows. Is mac support confirmed for this release? I thought 64bit was, but not mac. It'd help if the company perhaps gave customers some clear clue about what the heck they were doing.

comment Can You Make An Entire Website With JavaScript?
In applications, javascript is used extensively. Finding a web application written in the past 10 years that doesnt use some javascript would be very difficult, to say the least. I dont know where you get the notion its 'only used for ads'.

comment Is Free Pascal just an open source, multi-platform clone of Turbo Pascal & Delphi?
Free Pascal pre-dates Delphi, I believe. So it'd be a neat trick to be a clone of a product that didnt exist yet.

comment Is adding Ad Hoc reporting to an application worth the effort?
+1 for carefully limiting the structure and scope. Its easy to go overboard and create a monster.
