Embarcadero Webinar: Useful Tips and Best Practices to Transition to Unicode Easier and Faster


SAN FRANCISCO – March 19, 2010 – Join Embarcadero Technologies on Wednesday, March 24 or March 25 for a free, one-hour webinar hosted by Cary Jensen, a software development expert and bestselling author, and learn how to easily and quickly transition Delphi applications to Unicode.

Delphi 2009 and 2010 introduced significant changes to the basic string classes in order to support Unicode. Regardless of plans to support multiple languages in applications, these changes have important implications for how developers work with strings, especially in those applications originally created using an older version of Delphi.

Jensen has worked with more than 20 Delphi developers around the world – including noted authors, leading third-party vendors and front line developers – to learn how they approached their Unicode conversions, the challenges they faced, and the solutions they employed. During this webinar, Jensen will provide a general introduction to Delphi’s Unicode support and offer case studies from the trenches on best practices for migrating Delphi applications.

Three sessions of this webinar are available. To register, select the appropriate link below:
• March 24 8:00 PM PDT / 11:00 PM EDT -
• March 25 7:00 AM PDT / 10:00 AM EDT -
• March 25 3:00 PM PDT / 6:00PM EDT -
