      • Introduction (For beginners) | Best Practices, Windows
      • Description: Debugging a single program run by a single user on a single computer is a well understood problem. When a user reproduces and reports an error, the programmer attaches a debugger to the running process and examines program state to deduce where algorithms or state deviated from desired behavior. Debugging in the wild is harder. If you're waiting around for users to tell you about problems with your application, then you're seeing only a tiny fraction of all the problems that are actually occurring. Most users won't bother telling you about problems. They'll just quietly stop using your application.

    • Adapting Painlessly to Change with InterBase Change Views with Bob Calco [Room 2]
      • Intermediate (Some prerequisite knowledge) | InterBase, Delphi
      • Description: Change Views are a new feature of InterBase since XE7 that, with a little creativity, can help solve some gnarley enterprise-wide data management problems in near real-time. Moreover, they can be a better solution than the traditional batch update practices in fashion today, and much better than more obtrusive methods, such as use of database triggers. In this session, you will see how to detect novelty in an InterBase database *discretely* using Change Views, and share it in near real-time with other systems of record. This "Change Adapter" pattern makes InterBase ideal as an enterprise "source of truth" and allows for some interesting architectural patterns that would otherwise be too disruptive to introduce to the enterprise with any hope of adoption. Specifically we will cover: * How InterBase Change Views compare to and contrast with "Subscriptions" in other RDBMSs. * How to determine if Change Views are really what you need (the use case for change views presented here is not to be confused with the canonical replication use case). * [Vendor Preview Demo] How to create a "Change Adapter" for an InterBase application using Apex Athena, now part of Apex DomainMaster, that can send change notifications to external messaging systems *unobtrusively* from the database in near real-time. A healthcare use case demonstration will show updating of Provider information from InterBase to one or more external systems using FHIR, and walk through how a web application can leverage separation of reads and writes to implement a CQRS (Command-Query Responsibility Separation) pattern to increase scalability and ensure orderly flow of new information into and across the enterprise.
      • Biography: Mr. Calco is a seasoned enterprise architect and a proven software innovator with over 20 years of financial services, retail, and healthcare industry experience. Mr. Calco is a certified expert in multiple programming languages, having worked productively in over a dozen programming environments and platforms as diverse as C++, Delphi, Ada, Java, .NET (C#, VB), JavaScript, LISP, Clojure, Scala, Smalltalk, Ruby and others. He excels at designing and implementing hybrid solutions, because of his extensive experience and talent with languages have given him a strong sense of the relative strengths and weaknesses of the various mainstream and esoteric platforms in use today. Mr. Calco was the primary visionary and architect for the VistA.js Platform within the VA, an experience now drives his vision behind Apex Unify! and Apex DomainMaster, and their use of scripting in support of distributed microservices for sharing data across systems and even organizational boundaries.

    • Mobile View Management with Ray Konopka [Room 1]
      • Intermediate (Some prerequisite knowledge) | Best Practices, Delphi, Platforms and Technology, Mobile (iOS & Android), Windows
      • Description: One of the biggest challenges facing developers of mobile applications in Delphi is how best to manage multiple views. The TTabControl provides the basic mechanics of switching between views, and a common approach is to simply define each view on a page of the tab control. However, it is impractical to put all controls for all views onto one form. Another approach is to use frames for each view, but frames do not display mobile styles, and more importantly, it is very easy for inline instances of frames to become out of sync with source frames. Furthermore, neither of these approaches offer any support for view navigation. In this session, a new approach is presented that simplifies view management, facilitates view navigation, and isolates view definitions.
