47 on November 7th, 2011

Author: Bob Swart

November 7, 2011 is my 47th birthday, so (only) on this day, my lucky number is no longer 42, but 47 - and I'm offering a similar treat. Apart from turning 47 on November 7th, I can actually celebrate my 47th birthday no less than 47 hours (starting with November 7th in Kiritimati, which just started at 11:00 GMT+1, while November 7th in Honolulu starts 24 hours later. OK, so that's actually 48 hours, but who's counting - I'll be back next year).

Since I waited an hour with this blog post, I can at least announce that from now on (November 7th 01:00 in Kiritimati) until November 7th 23:59 in Honolulu - about 47 hours from now), I'm celebrating my 47th birthday, offering a 47% discount on my Delphi XE PDF courseware manuals for sale at
Normally priced at 99 Euro, they are now sold for 52 Euro a 47 Euro discount (still including the Delphi XE Development Essentials as free bonus PDF). Note that 19% VAT is required for buyers from The Netherlands, or buyers in the EU that do not enter their VAT number (EU rules, sorry).

TitlePrice without VATPrice with 19% VAT
Delphi XE DataSnap Development
Delphi XE XML, SOAP & Web Services Development 
Delphi XE IntraWeb XI Development

You will still get updates of the PDFs until the end of 2012, which includes XE2 coverage, so today is the best time to "jump aboard".

The webshop is also showing the special offer prices, but the original prices will return when Movember 7th is over (in Honolulu), around 11:00 GMT+1.

Finally, please allow 47 hours for delivery of the PDFs by e-mail (since I'm celebrating my birthday - worldwide - today), thanks! ;-)




IL 11/11/06 20:39:36Congratulations and many happy returns of the day! Does your Delphi XE DataSnap Development courseware differ nicely from the whitepaper ? Same question about differences in Delphi 2010 and XE and possibly XE2 coursewares in case of upgrade. Thanks.
Bob Swart 11/11/06 20:50:53That old Delphi 2010 white paper is 52 pages long. The Delphi XE DataSnap Development manual is 186 pages, and covering Delphi XE DataSnap, including the new features. So yes, I'd say it differs nicely from the old white papers. if you purchase the XE title(s) now, you will get updates until the end of 2012. This include the PDF courseware manuals about XE2 (which I'm already working on). So order "Delphi XE DataSnap Development" and you'll automatically also get the "Delphi XE2 DataSnap Development" once ready.
