History

This SIG began in March 2003 as the Delphi Development SIG (GDDG). The name was changed once the focus was expanded to general software development. Keith Wire and Mark Erbaugh led the group for several years. Glady Campion restarted the SIG in 2007 after a period of several months with no meetings. We are currently a small group of developers - the discussions are interesting - and we are always looking for a challenging project.
