A Practical Overview of Delphi’s Generic Collection Classes – Malcolm Groves

Delphi introduced Generics a few versions back, along with a whole bunch of very useful generic collection classes. However, for some people all those angle brackets and T’s still look like their keyboard threw up in their code editor. In this session Malcolm will attempt to give a gentle, practical overview of the various generic collections such as TList, TDictionary, TQueue and others, along with topics such as searching, sorting, comparators and enumerators.
