ITDevCon 9 is coming!

Yes, this year we started to name ITDevCon, the usual event for all the best Delphi “heads” (at least in this side of the world) with a version name. So, ladies and gentleman, this will be ITDevCon 9. As usual me and my team are in charge to choose the topics and build the agenda. ITDevCon 9 will be held next October 18th, 19th in Rome (Italy), in the same location of the last year: the bit Time group headquarter in Rome!

ITDevCon 9 will be organized, as usual, by bit Time Professionals, part of the bit Time Group.

Using a “very” complex formula (number_of_followers * number_of_tweets), the most active/influencer conference partecipant will win a special “Twitter Contest Prize” at the end of the conference. The score will be calculated at the closing keynote, so you cannot get the prize if you don’t attend the conference.

All the ITDevCon attendant can partecipate to the Photo Contest. From all the photos twitted with the @itdevcon hastag will be extracted the best one (the judge is our official photographer Valentina).  The winner will get a special prize at the end of the conference. The photo will be selected just before the closing keynote, so you cannot get the prize if you don’t attend the conference.

As usual one of the most important part of ITDevCon will be the networking between attendees. I know about great collaboration born during ITDevCon. Be there and don’t miss this social opportunity!

Back from Brazil (all slides and code from the Brasilian Delphi Conference)

Last week I returned from Brazil where I had been to speak to the Delphi Conference.
The conference was held in St. Paul who, like many Brazilians will be able to confirm, is not a typical Brazilian city.

The warmth of local people has been exemplary. Andreano Lanusse has organized all in a really valuable way.

Besides the excellent food, I was surprised by the number of Delphi developers found: 550! In addition, over 150 people
have not had time to register and were placed on a waiting list. Fantastic.

After the inevitable David and his keynote, there were four simultaneous tracks during the day.

My talk was translated from English to Portuguese.

As imagined, the argument Android and seem to raise much interest in the Delphi community.

It was very nice to have confirmation in the first person to what is present and the large Brazilian community Delphi.

Here you can find all the slides and in my GoogleCode svn repository you can find all the DEMO code.

If you live in italy or can speak in italian language, you might be interested in the “ITDEVCON MOBILE BOOST” (http://www.itdevcon.it/).

Stay tuned.

My speech at “PHPCon Italia 2009”
