Embarcadero Webinar: Getting Started with Windows® 7 Application Development


SAN FRANCISCO – Oct. 26, 2009 — Join Embarcadero on Wednesday, October 28 at 11 a.m. PDT for a live one-hour webinar on Windows 7 application development. Quickly get up-to-speed on what’s new in Windows 7 for application developers and learn how to make the most of some of the great new features while still supporting users on older Windows versions.

Mike Rozlog, the senior director of Delphi Solutions for Embarcadero, will explain how to:
• Take advantage of the new multi-touch input capabilities of Windows 7 by building touch and gesture enabled apps that support touch hardware and mouse input on Windows 7 and earlier versions of Windows.
• Make the most of graphics advances in Windows 7 including Direct2D and the Windows Imaging Component (WIC) framework.
• Build user interfaces that support multiple Windows versions, using Office-style ribbon controls, and choosing the best dialog controls for each version of Windows.
• Rapidly and visually build high performance native Windows applications with support for multiple versions of Windows – without the overhead of .NET.

You’ll see how all of this is possible with Delphi®, C++Builder® and Embarcadero® RAD Studio – some of the most popular tools today for building Windows applications.
