While preparing my “Fletch Programming Skills Marketability Index” for the week I ran in to a posting for a Clipper Support Analyst.
Wow! Clipper is still around. That brings back memories, Clipper, FoxPro, Turbo Pascal, Quick C, DOS, 640k/704k RAM, Novell…(I’m dating myself)

BTW – be kind and fill up the poll info to the right.
Thanks and happy Delphi!

On my last post about the Delphi road map I got very interesting comments. Those comments made me think about what is really needed to take Delphi back to the place it deserves as a development tool. Continue reading “Still looking at the map.”
