Unbelievable, but true - only two weeks after the Oslo Delphi Club was created we have 48 members and counting! And on Wednesday September 20th we gathered not less than 21 members to the first ever meeting at the local Peppe's Pizza joint to share good food, beverages, background stories and enthusiasm of Delphi, DevCo and the Oslo Delphi Club.
The room I had booked was packed to the last seat. After getting our first cold glass in hand, we took turns telling about ourselves, our Delphi/ Turbo/Borland Pascal background, our employers/companies, our projects and our ideas, hopes and possible contribution to the future our new-founded club.
Members varied greatly in age, experience and project types, but in common we all had the love in a product and phenomena as splendid as Delphi. We raved about the ingeniousness of a development tool that has followers who will select a product based on the language (read: Delphi) in which it is programmed.
I think that this enthusiasm caters well for the future of Delphi in general and the Oslo Delphi Club in general. If you haven't already, and you're close to Oslo, Norway - be sure to sign up as a member here.
