Wow, just wow for this teaser:
This page provides a few videos to help you get started with RemObjects C# for iOS development.
This page provides a few videos to help you get started with RemObjects C# for Android (and Java) development.
It is about Hydrogene, a.k.a. RemObjects C#, which – like Oxygene – also adds a few extensions to the C# language, just like Jolyon speculated december last year.
It wil be in beta tomorrow (:

I’m gussing here, as the URL is not yet live, but from March 1st (tomorrow!) you should be able to download a beta of Hydrogene/RemObjects C# from http://www.remobjects.com/elements/hydrogene (Just like Oxygene is available from http://www.remobjects.com/elements/oxygene/).

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:

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:
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
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.
