I'm mainly 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.
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.
- 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 GUI's
- Developer Friendly Classes
- Using or Building API's
- 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. Unfortunately, it's offline at this time.
It's always nice to know you're able to do something, even if you never use it.
