I’m told that our friend Brian Long will be giving a presentation at BE-Delphi’s annual developer event in Antwerp, Belgium, on November 21.
Brian is a great presenter; we had the pleasure of having him as a guest speaker at DSConf and he has presented on Oxygene for Android and iOS in the past — so if you’re anywhere near Antwerp in November, make sure to check out his talk, and the conference in general.
From Brian’s session summary:
Oxygene is an Object-Pascal based language previously well know in its .NET incarnation as Delphi Prism. Oxygene for Java produces Android apps that run where Android does – in Android’s Dalvik VM. It is for those who have a background in Delphi or a history of Pascal programming from previous times, or anyone who fancies something a bit different from Java, and who wants to use the standard Android APIs in the Android SDK to build lightweight, standard Android applications (or, for that matter, Java applets, servlets, etc.) that can run on any Android device of your choosing.
We’ll look at Oxygene for Java’s capabilities and features in the context of building and deploying an Android application using OS-native controls. We’ll see how the product works, bump into some enhancements to the evolving Object Pascal language and show that Oxygene for Java is a first class citizen in the world of Android development.
