New Sessions – just announced: 

Skinning VCL Applications 
Ray Konopka, Raize Software 
 RAD Studio XE2 offers support for skinning - the ability to dynamically change the appearance of UI elements without coding changes. This session provides a detailed look at how a developer can leverage skinning in their apps, and how to identify potential issues. In addition, this session pays particular attention to adding skinning support to custom VCL controls.

Effectively Using CodeSite Express in RAD Studio XE2 
Ray Konopka, Raize Software 
CodeSite Express first appeared in RAD Studio XE. With the release of RAD Studio XE2, a new version of CodeSite Express is available. This session will highlight the the new features of CodeSite Express 5 and how RAD Studio developers can leverage them.

Creating Custom FireMonkey Controls 
Ray Konopka. Raize Software 
RAD Studio XE2 includes the brand new FireMonkey user interface framework. Like the VCL, FireMonkey is component-based, but unlike the VCL, FireMonkey is designed to be cross-platform. This session will provide you with what you need to get started building custom FireMonkey controls. Specific topics will include presentation mechanisms, user interactions, designer functionality, and deployment.

Delphi and XML 
Jeroen Pluimers, better office benelux 
During this session you will learn how you can use XML from Delphi. A few of the topics:

  •  What is XML (XML document basics, well formed XML, valid XML) 
  • XSD to specify XML structure validate XML documents
  • DOM: the XML Document Object Model; which DOMs can you use from Delphi
  • XPath: querying XML, how to do this from Delphi
  • Fundamental differences between XML data structure and Delphi data structures
  • Mapping XML Data Binding: generating units from XML or XSD, what does Delphi cover and what not
  • Showing XML using Internet Explorer in Delphi
  • XML Character encodings. You will see many demo programs from the library explained. 

Introduction to Live Binding 
Jim Tierney, Embarcadero Technologies 
This session introduces Live Binding. Live Binding is the new data binding system for VCL and FireMonkey. This session will introduce key concepts include the binding engine, scopes, converters, methods, binding components, and custom components.

Live Binding Examples 
Jim Tierney, Embarcadero Technologies 
This session will demonstrate how to use Live Binding in practice. Examples include populating lists, TDataSet editing, control synchronization, using custom data. Both VCL and FireMonkey applications will be demonstrated.
