My name is Ralph Wilson.
I have been working with Delphi since it was just plain Delphi and I have done professional work (as opposed to personal work) in every version through Delphi 7.
I have been writing programs.applications since January of 1969 and have been developing database applications since about 1972. My experience covers a very wide range of industries as weel as a wide range of languages and datbases.
I am currently getting deeper and deeper into what I would term Database Architect work and am looking ot move even further in that direction in my career (although I will probably continue to be an advocate of Delphi ;-) ).
My hobbies include history, sailing, SCUBA, travel, cooking, photography, and wood working.
Early in my career, I was fortunate enough to be mentored by some extreme heavy-weights in the profession and the only way I can try to repay them is to share whatever knowledge I have with others in the profession.
I live in San Antonio, TX, but have kicked around the country a bit (I was an "Air Force Brat"). I have also lived in:
- Memphis, TN
- Norman, OK
- Bossier City, LA
- Dallas, TX
- Garland, TX
- Irving, TX
- Fairborne, OH
- Several cities in Japan
I will have questions and I hope to be able to provide answers.
