Five Eyed Hand: A trip through the sourcecode of a real Delphi XE4 iOS app – Malcolm Groves

There are lots of samples that ship with Delphi XE4, and they’re great for showing how to do one particular thing. However, sometimes you want to see an example of a complete App. During the XE4 beta program, Malcolm has been writing a showcase app for exactly this purpose.
During this session, he’ll walk you through the entire app’s source code, looking at such things as:

* deploying configuration files with your app and reading them at runtime
* dynamically changing frames at runtime in iOS
* using custom styles and LiveBinding together
* reading RSS files
* downloading images in background threads

and whatever else we stumble across that might be interesting. All the source for the app will be available afterwards.
