ADUG Winter Symposium 2016

The ADUG Winter Symposium is an all day Delphi event packed with technical content. It will be held on 4th August in Sydney and 5th August in Melbourne.

I’m really excited about the line up for this year, it’s one of the most diverse and interesting programmes we’ve put together. I’m positive every attendee will find their horizons expanded in ways they weren’t expecting.

Our speakers for this year are:

  • Malcolm Groves (CodePartners) – Modern Delphi Object Relational Mapping and Delphi Roadmap update
  • Garry Wood (Ultibo) – Pascal Programming  for Raspberry Pi with open source Ultibo
  • Alistair Christie ( – Computational Computing
  • Shane van de Vorstenbosch (OnSolution) – Marketing for developers

The Symposium is open to all and costs just a fraction of what you’d pay at other developer conferences. Early-bird pricing will end in just a few days so register ASAP to get the best deal.

Check out the ADUG Winter Symposium page for more details on the topics, schedule, locations and how to register.
