Wonderful workshop with Gauteng teachers at Hoërskool Oos-Moot (2014/03/08)

We had a wonderful workshop on the 8th of March for IT teachers relating to Delphi and the PAT for Gr12 learners for 2014. 

Concepts such as Dynamic Object Creation and the use and implementation of Datamodules and the ADODataset component were covered. +/- 30 Teachers all over Gauteng attended.

Thank you to Adane Peens for all the organisation, and Marinus the teacher of Hoërskool Oos-Moot and their generous hospitality.

I am always proud and thankful to be associated to dedicated teachers like this. Wonderful ideas were exchanged and everybody left the workshop with renewed eager.

Many teachers thanked Embarcadero for the free Delphi 2010 compiler. There was already some queries, relating to when a FireMonkey 'enabled' version would be made available. 

One relocated teacher (from a province who does not do Delphi) remarked how easy it was for her to learn the RAD studio platform, and how her learners at her new School enjoy Delphi, especially the ease in which DB connections and functionality are made available.

Once I have revamped one of the examples I did I will upload it. Watch this space :-)
