Lots of happy customers attended our booth. We owned the show simply because people craved our bags to put all their stuff in - nobody else had any bags (we rule!). Our CDs and T-shirts were of course a huge success as always.

Only the necessities - beer, pretzel and Borland software! Need a bag for that?

Kim Miller is making sure the marketing material looks good.

The most interesting piece of technology that everybody asked about was of course - what are we doing about .NET? Take a look at the images and let your imagination run wild... ;-)

For a lot more information about our upcoming .NET support, please check our .NET Strategy page. This preview was also shown at Microsoft TechEd - see press release.

Delphi.NET preview...

What's on the screen here? Well, there's Delphi source code (ConvertIt.dpr) on the left hand side, then the half second compile is shown in the command prompt in the upper right corner, in the middle and in the bottom left corner, the application is viewed in Reflector showing that it's a pure .NET application. The small window slightly below the top right corner shows the application running.
