Application Frameworks: Taking RAD to the Next Level – Martin Kammann (Autag)

Building business database applications is what most of us do with Delphi. We all know that it involves recurring and boring tasks, many of which could be automated. This presentation will demonstrate how an application framework can radically simplify and speed up these things.

We will build a simple MS Outlook style application that demonstrates how to handle data entry, retrieval, printing etc in a matter of an hour.

The framework to be demonstrated leverages Delphi’s Open Tools API by using IDE wizards to generate application modules (Units and forms) and generate a full-scale application with barely writing any code.
