Mobile development with Delphi FMX

08 Mai 2019
09:00 - 17:00

This workshop will give an introduction to mobile programming using Delphi’s cross-platform framework FireMonkey (FMX). We will start with an introduction to the FireMonkey framework itself. We’ll take a look at the different kinds of system and application architecture for mobile applications that you can use. This will include a few multi-tier development hints. We’ll also talk about remote data access via REST APIs or database on board solutions. Next, we’ll take a look at some UI topics in FMX like common components, customizable lists, different FMX styles, and various strategies to achieve a responsive UI. We also will discuss how to successfully utilized TFrameStand for modularity, visual continuity, and animations. Finally, we will take a look at OS interactions with a specific focus on Android. We’ll see how to use sensors and devices like the camera, location, and more. You will get some hints on how to use Android Intents and other low level interaction, too.
