ITDevCon 2011 Time Table

Yes, it is a bit late, but this year has been really difficult to choose between all the speeches proposals arrived from all over the world.
The new Delphi XE2 version (and the RAD Studio XE2 Suite too) are really full of new cool features and many of the best delphi developers want to show what can be done in Delphi XE2. Great situation!

However, also this year, there will be many talks and many speakers. For the first time there will be 2 plenary sessions with more than one speaker in the main TObject hall. During these sessions all the attendants will be in the same hall and I’m sure that there will be very interesting Q&A time at the end of the sessions.
As usual there will be english and italian speeches. In every time frame you will find a suitable talk for your language.

This year we are glad to have DavidI as a conference speaker. Thanks to be with us David!

As you can see from the time table, there will be many topics, but if you are particulary interested in Firemonkey, LiveBindings, DataSnap and Mobile, you will find a specific sets of speeches about these topics.

In particular:

  • DavidI and Pavel Glowacky will show all the cool stuff available in Delphi XE2
  • Marco Cantù will held an interesting session about Firemonkey development
  • Bruno Fierens will held a 2 parts session about Firemonkey cross-platform component development.
  • I’ll hold 2 sessions about LiveBindings and how to use them with the most popular Data Access Design Patterns
  • Debora Mizzoni (web) and Luca Giacalone (android) will talk about mobile development with RadPHP
  • Salvatore Sparacino will show how to use the datasnap mobile connectors to develop a real-world app
  • and many others on many others topics

This year we’ll have also a “Conference App” very similar to the Google I/O one. With this app you will be able to:
