Workshop with Dr. Cary Jensen at Hotel Hesselet, April 30 - May 1, 2024

   Dr. Cary Jensen:

Cary Jensen's Greatest Hits

April 30 and May 1, 2024
Hotel Hesselet, Christianslundsvej 119, 5800 Nyborg

Cary Jensen gave his first DAPUG Workshop in 1997, and has since been a featured DAPUG Workshop speaker many times since then (maybe 15 times? It’s too many to count). He has demonstrated his deep knowledge of Delphi, and has made many friends in the DAPUG community.
This spring’s Workshop (April 30 – May 1) will likely be Cary’s last DAPUG Workshop, and he hopes to go out with a Bang. Titled “Cary Jensen’s Greatest Hits,” this workshop will include some favorite material from numerous presentations, including material that he created for his long-running Delphi Developer Days tours, DAPUG Workshops, the German Entwickler Konference, the Dutch Software Developer’s Group (SDN) conferences, magazine and internet articles, and more.
This workshop will focus on many aspects of Windows development with Delphi, including database development, Windows services, some Open Tools API (OTI) stuff, and his always popular Tips and Tricks.
If you are a first-timer to one of Cary’s events, this is one you won’t want to miss. If you are long-time DAPUG member, and have attended his workshops in the past, this will be the perfect bookend to a legacy of informative talks by one of Delphi’s leading advocates.
We hope to see you there.

Workshop Agenda

Tuesday (Day 1)
08:00 - Arrival and setup
09:30 - Welcome to Cary Jensen
09:45 - Introduction to Database Development with FireDAC

If you haven’t used FireDAC yet, this session will get you started. If you are currently using it, this session will be a nice review of some of the basics. Topics include types of FireDAC database connections, configuring FireDAC components, and basic FireDAC operations.
10:45 - Break
11:00 - Selected Advanced FireDAC Development Topics

Taking things forward, this session will include caching updates, batch move operations, using FireDAC built-in functions, and Local SQL.
12:00 - Lunch
13:00 - Advanced Language Features
Delphi’s advanced language features can take your development to a new level. Topics covered include generics, attributes, and Delphi’s enhanced RTTI (run-time type information).
14:00 - Break
14:10 - Creating a Manageable Architecture
There are steps you can take that can help you better manage and update your applications quickly and easily. This session discusses these steps, which include creating base form classes, using interfaces, and customizing Delphi’s components.
15:00 - Coffee break
15:15 - Communicating Effectively in Speech and Writing

After 35 years of writing and presenting technical material, Cary shares his perspectives and lessons learned in the art of spoken and written communication. A version of this presentation was recently selected and given as a TEDx talk at Rice University in Houston, Texas, USA.

Wednesday (Day 2)
07:00 - Breakfast and CHECK OUT (please check out from your room before 09:00)
09:00 - Enhancing the Delphi IDE

The Delphi IDE was built with Delphi, and Delphi permits you to add to the IDE with your own custom code. This session discusses some of your options, and examines several sample projects that demonstrate how to do this.
10:00 - Break
10:10 - Fundamentals of Multi-Threaded Programming
This session looks at why you might want to add additional threads of execution to your applications, and shows you how to get started.

There are a lot of options for synchronizing two or more threads. This section will provide a brief overview of the major options, and will take a more in-depth look at some of them. 
12:00 - Lunch
13:00 - Creating Windows Services
Windows services permit you to write code that requires no user interface, and which can launch automatically when a computer or server starts. Since many Windows services employ threads, this session is a perfect follow-up to the previous two sessions.
