2017 Sept-Nov: Delphi Developer Days 2017 with Cary Jensen and Bob Swart
I'm back doing Delphi Developer Days this year, with a Special Edition Database Workshop. Cary Jensen has just announced the Delphi Developer Days 2017 Special Edition Database Workshop tour in the USA (Chicago, Sept 25-26), Europe (Frankfurt, Germany, Nov 28-29) and Scandinavia (Copenhagen, Denmark, Nov 24-25).
The workshop starts with a detailed look at connecting to data and configuring FireDAC, and continues with a look at some of FireDAC’s more advanced features, including Array DML, the SQL command preprocessor, and cached updates.
The workshop continues with an in-depth discussion of multi-tier development. Topics include creating DataSnap servers and using Embarcadero’s RAD Server. Here you will learn how to access your data from mobile applications, how to support both Delphi and non-Delphi clients using REST (REpresentational State Transfer), and how to create RAD Server microservices with Delphi.
