Melbourne Meeting – March 2021

Monday 15 March.

We met online, instead of meeting at the Shed..

At this meeting, Grahame Grieve from Health Intersections shared his experiences converting from a FMX application to an LCL application that runs on Windows, Linux and OSX using Lazarus and discussed which bits have worked well, and which haven’t.
The application is open source, so if you want to look at the code yourself,
