On the 26th of July Unisa (ICT Florida Campus) hosted a wonderful IT Delphi day for teachers in their district, orginised by Mr Hennie van Tonder and arranged by Mrs Ronel van der Merwe (Lecturer Unisa) and Mr Collin Pillkington (Lecturer Unisa)
During the workshop content relating to the PAT and DB related issues where covered and the teachers where introduced to AppMethod (which supports free development in Object Pascal for Android Phones for learners) by Mr Bernard Sibanda.
As part of the presentation some alternate content and approach do DB connectivity and access where demonstrated with the implementation of ClientDataSet components and some relevant events. We also covered Master Detail relationships and the creation of a Master-Detail form, using parameterised queries.
The teachers were also shown how easy it is to create multi-platform mobile applications with Delphi and deploy the application to a Mobile device whilst debugging the application in a Windows environment.
The day was a huge success, with teachers being motivated and even Unisa lecturers surprised.
