Audience Question

  • Q: Off topic: Has their been any reports of issues with Yosemite and virtual machines (VMWare)? I am planning on updating my OS X this weekend.
  • A: I know Parallels has released an update to work with Yosemite. It is pretty common that you need a new version to support a new OS. I’d check with VMWare to see if they have an update or what they recommend. I haven’t updated yet because I’ve been so busy with CodeRage and everything, but plan to upgrade both Parallels and OS X next week.

Audience Question

  • Q: just changed
  • A: Sorry.

Audience Question

  • Q: Paralles 9 still works on Yosemite. However, 10 is supposed to work more efficiently.
  • A: Good to know.

Audience Question

  • Q: I’m using Parallels along with Yosemite and Windows 10 without any problems!
  • A: Nice.

Audience Question

  • Q: No problem. Looks like he was on the first slide whole time.
  • A: There was an intermediate slide but the screen was hung. My falt. Sorry.

Audience Question

  • Q: Parallels 9 have issues with Windows 10 and Yosemite. You must upgrade to Parallels 10.
  • A: Good to know.

Audience Question

  • Q: if i need to database 1 million news stories aday and proive a search functionality on headlines and story bodies where you can do word seach or phrase search for over 100 people, is interbase a good solution or is a noSQL better?
  • A: InterBase gives you User Defined Functions for searching. So there are ways to add search. There are other advantages too.

Audience Question

  • Q: does IB support #memory tables as in SQL ?
  • A: Not Memtables, but you can use FireDAC and InterBase supports Temporary Tables. So it depeds on your use case.

Audience Question

  • A: The caching algorythems optimize to use the memory you provide the database to keep the tables in memory.

Audience Question
