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.

MockJSONAPI Server

Today and tomorrow I’ll be the speaker at the DAPUG event in Denmark. The title of the event is “DELPHI IN THE ENTERPRISE”. What is an enterprise application?

ITDevCon 2017 - The Delphi European Conference

ITDevCon 2017 is coming! As every year (but 2015), I’m building the agenda for next ITDevCon that will be held next October 11th, 12th in Rome (Italy), in the same location of the ITDevCon 2016 and ITDevCon 2017 spring edition: the bit Time group headquarter in Rome!

Maybe because the SE is shorter, maybe because all the speeches were in italian, maybe because the Linux support attracted new people… maybe for all these things (we are still giving a full meaning to the surveis took during the conference).

ITDevCon 2017 Spring Edition

Yes, we did it! As we anticipated at the last ITDevCon in Rome (oct 2016) in 2017 we organized another appointment with ITDevCon, called Spring Edition. The Spring Edition is shorter than the classic edition and it is only in italian language, but offers the usual high-level contents that the ITDevCon brand usually does.
