EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED / BREAK ALL THE RULESThe development world teeters on the brink of radical change. Many otherwise brilliant professionals remain completely oblivious to what the future holds. Collaborative Computing is it! Far beyond mere groupware, Collaborative Computing is a way of structuring and building systems based upon role-driven cooperative components. It is the path towards thinking machines.Using many of the advanced features of Delphi I explore some of the hottest development trends, always while subtly revealing how best to prepare for the changes that await. Employing various literary devices, I break long standing traditions in technical writing in order to prepare those ready to meet the challenge and excitement that this new way of structuring systems brings. Expect the rules to be broken.My book is not for everyone. Each reader finds different answers. Be prepared to think. Readers cannot simply read code and glimpse screen shots. Few people will unlock all the secrets in this book, but this is the fun part. This is not a Delphi reference manual or beginner's guide to Delphi development. This book is about real world problems and solutions. My examples are lengthy and complex.Look not for snappy answers to simple questions. Rather, savor this book as you would a novel, work my examples as you would puzzles, contemplate my hundreds of custom drawings, explore my imaginary companies, study my words as you would Zen koans. Take nothing at its face value in this book. Look for second and third meanings. Words have been chosen for reasons. Befriend Mr. Webster. Better yet, explore beyond my words, beyond my examples, beyond my metaphors, puns, analogies, rhymes and stories and beyond any preconceived notions that you may have of what you expect to find in a computer book. Flip these pages with an open mind. Expect the unexpected.Enjoy the ride!
