Meeting Replay

This site could not handle the replay size.    Due to the success of the Meeting, I created a new site to hold virtual meeting announcements and contents.

The new site already has the replay from the first meeting posted.

Results of First Virtual Meeting


The first meeting was a very good success.   We had a few technical glitches, but overall we figured it out.
Camtaisa has been very slowly rendering the recording we are at 15.7% in 2 days :-(  but when it's ready I will post it.

The survey results proved that the concept will work.   No I just need some help to get vendors on board to help with costs and donate products to the meetings.   If your interested in helping sponsor the virtual meetings in  some way email me: rlove at

Design Patterns in Delphi - Notes

These are my Notes, I used to prepare for the last Design Patterns Meeting

Books Used:

The starting point of all Design Patterns, examples are in C++ and Smalltalk.   It's a good reference to have, but it's like reading a manual on how to build an F16 Fighting Falcon, if you are new to design patterns.

This is an easy to use reference on Design Patterns, it's primary language Java.   It's writing style is typical of other Head First Books and is easily applied to Delphi.

A few web Links Related to Design Patterns In Delphi:  (Use Google to Find more)

Thanks to all who attend
Robert Love!
