CodeRage 7 – Day 1 Highlights: Marco Cantu is the new Delphi Product Manager, RAD Mobile Studio demoed, relevant links

Embarcadero’s Coderage 7 conference Day 1 started with a great announcement, so I took the chance  to congratulate  Marco Cantu  that  joined Embarcadero as Delphi Product Manager . It is quite fortunate to have the Master of Delphi himself with his full expertise (writing tons of Delphi books, a great and frequent speaker in a lot of Delphi conference, opens source contributor…) to be in charge of Delphi’s future. Bringing his practical expert user/developer perspective into the overall Embarcadero’s vision regarding Delphi should have a big, positive impact.  It remains to be seen how much liberty Marco will have to decide in regard of development priorities/choices. Maybe with this announcement,  it is also a good opportunity for Embarcadero to let FREE (to acquire) some late Marco’s books (as ebooks) to form sort of new Delphi Developer Guides.

While Marco’s appointment was the best news so far, the demo performed with the new RAD Mobile Studio (for XE3 ?!) was definitely great demonstrating the (non-vaporware!) current status of development and the Embarcadero commitment to the mobile focused (Android and iOS) roadmap . I took the chance to make some screenshoots to have a look of the nice & natural integration of the new mobile plugin into the  RAD Studio.
