Examining Cross-functionality Bias on Software Development Teams | AgileConnection

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/19

Cross-functionality means having all the necessary people and skills on one self-organizing team. Unfortunately, the execution of cross-functionality is often biased. The main traps we fall into are misunderstanding the value of specialization, hero worship, and not “walking the cross-functional talk” as organizations. Let’s examine each of these pitfalls in the hope that your teams may avoid them.

Delphi: 2 things to check when FMX/VCL units are inserted when you use VCL/FMX components

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/19

On G+Tom Field bumped in the [WayBack] issue that the IDE would add VCL units to the uses list when putting FMX controls on a form.

I’ve observed it the other way around as well, and there are two things you need to check:


David Nottage:

It has to do with whether there’s {$R *.fmx} or {$R *.dfm} in the unit. You may be able to get away with renaming the .dfm file to .fmx, and changing the directive in the unit.

Jeroen Wiert Pluimers:

 Your .dproj file tells you what kind of application it is (FMX or VCL) in the FrameworkType element and the IDE should respond to that correctly.
