Software Built With Delphi Celebrates 20 Years

I am pleased to announce the release of Credit Card Math 2014, a program written with Delphi XE4.

When I started this project I had just upgraded to Delphi 2010. If you go back and read my first blog post I mentioned one of the reasons for upgrading to Delphi 2010 was "I need to bring my products up to date (no more 640 X 480 windows) etc." 

It's hard to believe that it's been five years since I first mentioned I needed to upgrade my software. Over the past five years I've learned a lot. I've made a shit-load of mistakes. I've developed new coding habits. I've discovered new components. And most importantly I made a bunch of new friends in the Delphi community.

I still have two other software products that need to be updated. I do not believe it will take me five years to upgrade each of them.

I would like to thank the following people, who's software components helped me with my project:

Ray Konopka, Raize Components
Tim Young, ElevateDB 
Boian Mitov, Basic Video 
Nard Mosely, ReportBuilder
Jordan Russell, Inno Setup
