I've been programming in Delphi since v1. Prior to that I was a VC++ v2/WinAPI and VB v4 programmer.
Delphi has helped make a big diffence to the volume and quality of software that I write, and I'm keen to help other people reap the benefits of Delphi (and OOP) too.
I'm a New Zealander with a Computer Science degree.
The coding principles I'm most aware of when coding are:
Consistency of style, simplicity, UI separation, abstraction.
