Where do I start?  I guess I'll just blurt it out... The ever-present, Delphi champion extraordinaire, now ex-TeamB, Nick Hodges has just joined the DevCo team!  Nick will be performing his duties as the Delphi Product Manager.  This is an important position and one I'm sure Nick will perform in admirably.  He will be responsible for all the incoming ideas, requirements, and direction for the Delphi portion of the BDS product (we're still looking for a C++Builder Product Manager).  Nick will be working for Michael Swindell, the DevCo Director of Product Management, whose responsibilities have expanded to include all DevCo products.

I'm excited to get to work with Nick on a day-to-day basis!  I've had the privilege of working with Nick while serving on the BorCon Advisory Board for some past conferences.  I'm sure Nick will continue to be a prolific blogger and will be very active in soliciting feedback from the community about features, functions, and directions for the Delphi product.

So welcome aboard Nick!  Please join me in congratulating him and raise your glass as a toast for great things to come!


  1. That's fantastic news. Nick is an excellent fit for that position; this is good for DevCo and good for him.

    Three cheers!

  2. The more I think about this, the more I think it is superb news, both for Nick and DevCo. And it's a funny thing, but I feel like I now have an insider at DevCo, one of us has finally made it.

    Latelly you don't speak much, but when you speak it sounds like heaven ;-)

  4. Congratulations! That's fantastic news!

    Go "DevCo"! Go Delphi!

  5. Congratulatios DevCo! We are in good hands.

  6. Ugh... I guess I can kiss the x64 Delphi compiler goodbye.

  7. Nick is vocal - thats good

    Nick is hard working - great

    Nick is passionate - the best

  8. Will, Nick has never been against a 64 bit native Delphi compiler. You might want to see the discussions on Delphi.non-tech about it.
