Melbourne Meeting – February 2020

Monday 17th February at 6 for 6:15pm start.

At our next meeting, Richard King will introduce us to Lazarus and FreePascal.

If you’re interested in a cross-platform alternative to Delphi, or you are concerned about Embarcadero’s redefinition of perpetual, you should take a look at FreePascal.

Richard’s presentation will cover:
– which builds to install,
– IDE differences (he’s impressed with the Lazarus IDE),
– generics,
– VCL vs LCL,
– third party components,
– difficulties with COM if you want to interface with Word.
This should be a good introduction to Lazarus / FreePascal.

We will start the meeting with some time for a “Public Soap Box” where attendees can ask questions, share discoveries or talk about code.
