A note from Embarcadero to tell me that Delphi is 25 years old today.

Delphi1 was first released on February 14th 1995 as a new development tool for Windows3.11 (16-bit).

I didn't realise that Delphi was only a couple of years old when I started using it. By which time it had already morphed into 32-bit Delphi2 for Windows95.

Both Delphi and Templot are still going strong all these years later. :)

Delphi1 was first released on February 14th 1995 as a new development tool for Windows3.11 (16-bit).

In the early 90s I was trying to write a program to deal with files in my business.  I had been using C (Microsoft Quick C for Windows) and had been persuaded that an OOP language could be better for my purposes.  So I started with Visual C++ and found out that once you started digging under the surface that the learning curve became pretty well vertical.  At the time I got Personal Computer World on a regular basis and in 1995,  Delphi Version 1 appeared on a cover disc - presumably as part of Borland's release.  I had a quick dabble with it and took to it like a duck to water and Visual C++ went in the bin. :D   The only problem with V1 was that it didn't handle long ints and my files used long ints,  so my first programs had to shift all the long ints right one place to work on them,  then shift the results all back right one place before writing back to file. :D   I moved to V3 a year or two later when I could handle long ints easily.  I then went on to get V7,  Turbo Delphi and two versions of V10.

I haven't really touched Delphi programming since I retired ten years ago and looking at Martin's Templot code recently has got me to start refreshing my memory about the language.  I had got very rusty. :D

Jim.

When I saw that I had emails from Martin and Jim with the subject line 'Happy Birthday' (the rest was cropped) I thought 'how kind - how did they know'! I am considerably older than Delphi however by exactly 44 years!
Cheers anyway!

At least you should always have got at least one card on the day. :D
