Earlie this month, I wrote a review about Delphi Cookbook.
Well: as of last thursday, you can get that for USD 5 (or EUR 4.80, so better get yourself a USA account: just ensure your address is in the USA).
Heck: until januari 6th, you can get any eBook or Video on Packt for USD 5.
Note there is even an x-Mas countdown on the way (with each day a free book that is readable/downloadable for 24 hours).
There’s over 2500+ books to choose from, so I’m grabbing this chance to learn a few things on OpenCV, Scala, and PowerShell.

Interesting comment by Marco Cantu:
R&D at Embarcadero is working on a 64bit iOS compiler, oh well actually 2 of them, also C++. We’ll support 64bit and “universal binaries” (bundling both 32 and 64 bit binaries) requested by Apple.The Feb 1st requirement is only for new apps, not for updating existing ones, but still we are trying to make a solution available by that time.The roadmap describes the entire year, more than the individual release. This time around we are trying to have it public by January, covering what we expect to deliver in 2015.
via: Just got another reminder from Apple about 64 bit IOS requirements from Feb….

A small follow up on MVVM, MVP, MVC, OOD, etc: it is all about structure and using common sense:
When you want to do MVVM with Delphi, there is a great Delphi MVVM demo that Malcolm Groves gave at CodeRage 7 that is on YouTube.
A few resources you should look at after viewing that demo:
Some of it might work with Delphi XE2, but I think you need XE3 or younger for most of the demos.
