I’m Speaking at EKON 17; early bird ends on Friday October 4th 2013: save EUR 100 and get a free Android tablet.

Early bird ends October 4th: get an Android tablet for free and save EUR 100!

Early bird ends October 4th: get an Android tablet for free and save EUR 100!

EKON17 (from November 4-6 in Cologne, Germany) will be a fun event this year: lots of nice sessions and workshops, a lovely city (not just the Dom Cathedral), and a great group of speakers.

Since there are so many speakers that are able to speak English, it is interesting for non-German attendees as too, especially the post-conference workshop from Nick Hodges.

I’ll be speaking too (more on that below) and will be there all 3 days (plus the evening before and morning after to aid people with their Delphi related questions).

Among the speakers, these will do their sessions in English:

On Windows: Do not install the Android SDK ADT bundle in a path with spaces

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/28

Some 20 years after someone thought it was a nice idea to allow spaces in path names on Windows, it still is a bad idea to rely that just “works” for everything.

Today I tried to see if it still applied what I mentioned 2 years ago during the German BASTA! Fall conference in the Rheingoldhalle when talking about cross platform .NET development using MonoDroid/MonoTouch/Visual Studio:

Android SDK
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
– Windows:
- http://dl.google.com/android/installer_r13-windows.exe
- http://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk_r13-windows.zip
Do not install in a directory with spaces (not C:\Program Files, but C:\android-sdk)

And it does still apply: though not mentioned in the Android SDK/ADT documentation, most of the batch files in the Android SDK ADT bundle are not compatible being stored in a path that has spaces.

Unquoted referrals to paths like this are used in most SDK batch files:

cd /d %~dp0

The only way to run these batch files is with the current directory being the directory of the batch file itself, or referring to them in their fully quoted form.

Another correct way would be to use short names, but that’s only done in find_java.bat:

%~dps0

Summary of the batch files and how they are affected:

(Side note: most incompatible batch files correctly do `for %%i in (“%cd%”) do set prog_dir=%%~fsi`)

So: make sure “…”  is a path not containing spaces.

Dutch stop of the RAD Studio in Action LIVE! event: September 7th, Leiden (close to Amsterdam) with extra conference track.

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/27

The Dutch stop of the RAD Studio In Action LIVE! tour is on September 7th.

The venue location is via Holiday Inn Leiden Hotels: Haagse Schouwweg 10, 2332 KG  Leiden, The Netherlands.

It is close to the advertised “Amsterdam Netherlands” (about half an hour drive), close to the A44 highway and close enough to public transport. And it is indeed on Saturday September 7, 2013

Full day event: RAD Studio In Action LIVE! + conference track Read the rest of this entry »

My Delphi conferences this fall: DelphiTage.de, ITDevCon.it, no EKON (entwickler-konferenz.de)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/09/19

Nicolette and me on the Antarctic peninsulaWhile scheduling this year’s projects, it was clear that it would become impossible to have the summer holiday in the summer (last year was also outside, as we fulfilled Nicolette’s dream: visit the Antarctic region).

So we moved this year’s holiday to early November, hoping that would be outside the Fall conference season.

Alas, EKON (Entwickler-Konferenz.de), this year in Düsseldorf, Germany, moved themselves to November, so this will be the first EKON ever that I won’t attend (out of 3 or 4 people that never missed one). Sorry guys I will miss the great speakers, sessions and workshops (:

I am going to speak on two other European Delphi conferences though:

I’m really looking forward meeting the attendees, speakers and organizations there. Conferences are always a lot of fun and a great way for me of learning new things.

Foto’s KatwijkBinse Truckrun 2012 tijdens doorkomst Sassenheim op van 12 augustus 2012 (set on Flickr)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/08/24

Vorig weekeinde heb ik foto’s gemaakt van de KatwijkBinse Truckrun 2012 tijdens de doorkomst in Sassenheim.

De foto’s zijn genomen op de Wilhelminalaan vlakbij het gemeentehuis.

Helaas her en der wat onderbelicht – ik was uitgeput door de hitte en niet zo helder die dag.

Volgende keer moet ik met tegenlicht iets meer opletten (:
