I found Prestwood several years ago but I never introduced myself.

My name is Daniel and I've been coding in Delphi on and off, but mostly on, since 1997. At the time, COBOL and BASIC was what I was coding in a client-server environment, before most people even knew what nTier architecture meant. Heck I didn't know, but was doing it.

Someone in another department came up to me, presumably after seeking permission from my manager, and asked if I knew Delphi. I said, knew what? Having never heard of Delphi I said no, but was anxious to do something new, so I was transferred to the other department.

I didn't what the future was for Delphi and it wasn't to be a .Net, however, Delphi has found me and paid me well over the past decade point five.

Take care and talk to you later.

Hi Daniel,

I've seen some of your posts before, but thanks for the intro.  My experience isn't unlike yours. Before Delphi, I was coding mostly in C and C++; also client-server systems.

I attended a show in San Francisco where Borland was handing out pre-release disks of Delphi 1. I installed it and started playing.  I wasn't eager to learn a new language, but once I saw the power of Delphi's RAD environment, and OOP without pointers galore, I never looked. Seriously. I haven't written a line of C or C++ since.

Delphi's been very good to me. Times change, though, and we're getting more and more calls for Web applications, so I'm now deep into Visual Studio and .NET. There's much to like about this newer technology, but Delphi still feels like "home."
