This session shows you that Unicode and other encodings are not scary. They help you in exchanging data with other systems and addressing people that use other characters than U.S. ASCII. Learn about Unicode, ISO-8859, CodePages, Windows-1252, UTF, single-byte, multi-byte, encoding, re-encoding, differences in Delphi and Delphi Prism, and much more. See how to fix code that failed before as well.
While Delphi allows you to utilize the full power of modern computers, many programs still run only at a fraction of the CPU capacity because programmers are scared of writing the multi-threaded code. The open source library OmniThreadLibrary will help you overcome that hurdle by providing high-level language construct as as parallel 'for' statement.
