A Pragmatic and Powerful Code Generator with Generics and Anonymous Methods
Jeroen Pluimers – better office benelux
Sometimes it pays off to generate some of your source code. If you, for instance, can split your behavior in generated base classes and specific descending classes, this can speed up development enormously. You do not need a full-fledged code generator for this. By keeping it pragmatic and reusing parts of the Delphi RTL itself, you can get results quickly.

Vsevolod Leonov – Embarcadero
Relevant to: Delphi, RAD Studio
DataSnap platform for multi-tier provides powerful capabilities for developers. Now it’s easy to start a new multi-tier project with many variants of deployment. But sometimes the goal is to convert the existing Client/Server project into DataSnap version. Sometimes it needs the migration of the code style into pattern, typical for multi-tier programming. So we have a traditional project, implementing interaction with DBMS. How can we support migration? What should be easily change and what needs some refactoring? The presentation will consider the basic and reliable techniques, which will help you to upgrade the existing projects and get the advantages of new DataSnap multi-tier architecture.
