If you want a chance to learn to code (or maybe pick up ideas about how to teach coding?) maybe this “Embarcadero Coding Summer Camp” which officially started yesterday is for you…..
Good news for Embarcadero community edition users. The very latest version (10.4.2) is now available as a “community edition”. Download it here.
It would be very interesting to know if you use Delphi or C++….
I’ve set up a doodle poll……
CAN EVERYONE COMPLETE THIS POLL ? then we’ll get an indication……

Embarcadero have just announced the availability of RAD Studio Rio 10.3.1. This follows (fairly) hot on the heals of Rio 10.3 which was released in Nov 2019
This release has some minor new additions but is basically a bug fix release. You have to uninstall 10.3 and then install 10.3.1 using the same type of installer (either ISO or www) that you originally used for the 10.3 install.
Registered users can use the following download links
The “Community Edition” (free of charge (subject to restrictions on use) version) is available at
Behind Embarcadero’s first class products are a strong on-line community and a company keen to keep it’s customer base bang up to date with what’s going on. One way they achieve this is an annual on-line event, “Code Rage. This is a free series of presentations that cover a very wide range of programming aspects. It most definitely is NOT a series of sales or marketing talks!
It’s free to anyone and registration is simple and quick. Once registered there is no obligation to attend any o the on-line events, but when you see the line up, why wouldn’t you?

I mentioned the release of the free version of the Embarcadero C++ or Delphi development environment back on 19th July 2018.
This version is free to most people who make litte or no money from s/w development. There are full details of the precise license restrictions at the download links at the bottom of this posting.
This has gone down very well with hobbyists and open source enthusiasts and also allows “start up” companies to get going with a professional s/w development IDE and only have to pay when they start to make some genuine income.
Since it’s release two other advantages have occured to me.
a) Customers who are worried about ongoing support their software that I have supplied, should my company suddenly collapse (or be taken over) can now get hold of a genuine copy of community edition and can prove to themselves that the source code package I am supplying can actually be compiled and linked by someone else. I’ve always known this but now they can check for themselves. [This only applies to customers who are not in the software development business of course, but this applies to all of my company’s customers (that’s why they use my company)].
b) Anyone applying for a job at my company can now be asked to get a copy of Community Edition and be asked to develop or debug code using their copy as part of our interveiw/selection process.
Community Edition is great: Here are the links, if you are new to Embarcadero products go get it now!
Embarcadero have anounced new editions of their C++ IDE and Delphi IDE. Known as “Community Edition” these are free licensed versions of the “Professional edition” for students, home users, open source developers and anyone who programs but does not generate an income. There are accurate details of the restrictions on use at the links below.
This is a very positive move by Embarcadero. It makes it easy for anyone to experience first hand the quality of their products. It can’t help but increase the popularity of the Embarcadero C++ and Delphi programming environments.
