Tomorrow I'm leaving from Rome to go to São Paulo (Brasil) for the annual Delphi Conference.\ This is the Brasilian Delphi Conference web site: http://latam.embarcadero.com/br/delphiconference/.\ I've a talk about Delphi and Android. I'm really excited for all the cool things that can be done with this technologies.\ For the conference talk, I've developed a DEMO Android application to manage customers and orders that use some mobile technologies available in the Android OS in my Samsung Galaxy S.
This application uses JSON over HTTP to talk with a DataSnap server developed with DelphiXE. The database that it is used by the Delphi server, is Interbase.
The DataSnap REST interface is completely RESTful, it is not a JSON-RPC.
In this Android application, a salesman, can also acquire the customer's GPS coordinates (for example, his shop office's location) and use this information in the included GoogleMaps view. This informations, along with all orders details, are sent, as soon as possibile, to the central office and integrated with the customer's data already there.
In november, I'm having a mini-course in Milan (ITALY) about "Delphi in the mobile Era". I'll talk about all the new possibilities that mobile devices and new DataSnap, have opened to the Delphi programmers. (http://www.bittime.it/page/corsi/19146)
In the middle of november (17-18-19) bit Time, has organized a very nice conference called "ITDevCon: European Delphi Conference". The first day (november 17th) is about mobile development, there will be 2 tracks, one on Android development, and the other on iPhone development. I'll hold Android course.\ These are the course contents: http://www.itdevcon.it/corsi/it (will be only in italian language).
