In 2012 Embarcadero invited Alister to join a select group of Delphi experts from around the world to form the Embarcadero MVP program for which he was the first from New Zealand.
Alister has produced two books, “Code Faster in Delphi” (available now on LeanPub), and “Code Better in Delphi” which is about 50% written and will be available soon.

When Alister isn’t doing all that, he’s investigating new technologies, hanging out with his family, playing guitar, investing in real estate, working out, farming his lifestyle block (hobby-farm), renovating, and running a B’n’B.
