“Project Cooper” launch pencilled in

RemObjects have added the SDN's October 2011 Software Developer Conference (SDC) in Zeist, Netherlands to their events page. The events listed on that page are conferences and events that feature sessions and material on RemObjects products, such as Delphi Prism and the W.I.P. “Project Cooper” (a Delphi Prism-like tool for building, debugging and deploying Java and Android applications).

I mention the SDN Conference in particular because this is where “Project Cooper” will be officially launched. On the evening of Monday, October 3rd I will be delivering the launch presentation, currently entitled: Presenting: Project “Cooper” - The Oxygene Language for Java and Android.

On Tuesday, October 4th I will be giving another two “Project Cooper” sessions, looking at specifics of Java and Android development. These additional sessions are still being worked out and will be made known closer to the conference date.

Oxfam Trailwalker 2011 Post-Event Update

The Trailwalker event eventually came on the weekend of the 16th and 17th July after months of training walks. This post gives a write-up of the event and allows me to extend another heartfelt thank you to all our generous sponsors who have contributed to the great causes we were fundraising for. At the time of writing we have raised a splendid £2873 (or approx. £3482 with Gift Aid factored in). This is tremendous news as we were originally aiming for £1500.

MonoTouch and Mono for Android are back

This post is a little tardy in relation to the news it brings. But in case you missed it, Xamarin have now taken over the MonoTouch and Mono for Android products from Novell/Attachmate and have them available from their site store – so this changes the questionable status over the products that the Attachmate acquisition of Novell brought about.
I guess I’ll have to update my MonoTouch intro tutorial and in-depth tutorial and my Mono for Android intro tutorial, to correct all the links etc.
But it’s great to see Mono development available again for the mobile platforms.
I did indeed update the MonoTouch articles and also update the Mono for Android article.
