To the Delphi community, February 14 is not only known as Valentine's Day (you're welcome for the reminder 😁), it is also Delphi's birthday. This year, it will turn 29 and Embarcadero -- Ian Barker to be more precise -- will be hosting a special webinar to celebrate.
In the ever-evolving landscape of technology, community-driven support plays a crucial role in fostering innovation and growth. Today, I'm thrilled to share a significant step in my journey as a Delphi enthusiast and content creator – I have joined GitHub Sponsors to provide you with an opportunity to support my tutorials, videos, source code examples, and other Delphi-related projects.
I'd like to mention that several developers have approached me, expressing their interest in supporting my projects financially. This move to GitHub Sponsors serves as a dedicated platform where you, along with other members of the community, can contribute and help sustain the continued development of valuable Delphi content. Your support is greatly appreciated, and if you have any questions or would like to contribute, GitHub Sponsors is the avenue through which you can do so.

In recent weeks, I have gotten inquiries about a live seminar to build a full stack project with Delphi. With regard to scope, something like my latest video series with the ability for you to interact and ask questions. The seminar would either be during the week or on a Saturday.
Here's just a few suggestions as an overarching topic for the whole seminar. They would last from 3-6 hours.
- HTML, CSS and Bootstrap for Delphi developers
- Building the architecture of a Web application with responsive navigation bar
- Web page with user login and dedicated areas (front plus backend implementation)
- Getting started with MQTT
- Your idea! Use comment section in poll...
Let me know if and when you would like to participate. Also, if you would only participate for free. The likelihood of an event happening is lower then because I would need to look for a sponsor.
The poll is closed.
Here's just a heads up that my latest video series named "Modern Delphi Web Development" has been completely published by TMS Software on YouTube. It consists of 8 episodes with a run-time of over 3 hours! A full table of contents with links to each video is available here.
