Written by Jim McKeeth on Posted in Articles

To follow up with our recent FireDAC in Depth with Cary Jensen we have a series of FireDAC webinars to help you learn more about everyone's favorite database access framework. Each webinar is offered at 8 AM, 1 PM and 8 PM US Central Time to provide access in all timezones. 


  • 25-Jul (Tue) FireDAC Introduction
    • An introduction to the multi-platform, multi-database, full featured, super fast database access framework.
  • 27-Jul (Thu) FireDAC Tracing and Monitoring
    • How to use FireDAC's Tracking and Monitoring features for advanced logging and troubleshooting.
  • 01-Aug (Tue) FireDAC Cached Updates and Autoinc Fields
    • Learn to use autoincrement fields as primary keys, and cached updates to cache multiple updates in memory and write them all to the database at a later time in a single batch.
  • 03-Aug (Thu) FireDAC Array DML
    • The Array DML execution technique submits a single DBMS command with an array of parameters. Each command parameter has an array of values, and all parameters have arrays of the same length. Then FireDAC requests the DBMS to execute a command once for each row in arrays. This technique reduces the amount of communication between DBMS and client, enables DBMS to stream command execution, and speeds up execution time.
  • 08-Aug (Tue) FireDAC Cascading Options System
    • Learn to use the cascading system of setting options for optimal FireDAC performance
  • 10-Aug (Thu) FireDAC: Preprocessing SQL Commands
    • FireDAC Preprocessing includes "macro" and "escape sequence" allowing dynamic generation of more complex sets of operations for performance and less work on the developer's part.
  • 15-Aug (Tue) FireDAC ETL = Extract, Transform, Load
    • The FireDAC Extract, Transform and Load functions work with the batch move, reader and writer components for data movement between different types of data sources and the data destinations.
  • 17-Aug (Thu) FireDAC In Memory DataSets: TFDMemTable
    • The FireDAC in memory data set lets you work with an offline or in memory dataset with being connected to a database. This can be helpful in a briefcase model, or when adding dataset functionality to a non-database driven application.
  • 22-Aug (Tue) FireDAC Local SQL
    • Local SQL gives you the full power of SQL based set operations across datasets from diverse sources, including different databases, different data engines and in memory data.
  • 24-Aug (Thu) Migrating BDE applications to FireDAC and InterBase
    • Learn how to migrate your legacy BDE based database application to FireDAC and InterBase to keep your programs relevant and to take advantage of all the new features and functionality.
  • 29-Aug (Tue) Migrating dbExpress Applications to FireDAC
    • Learn how to migrate away from dbExpress to give your applications the full power of FireDAC
  • 31-Aug (Thu) Using InterBase Events and Change Views with Callback Functions
    • Get more power from InterBase with events, change views and call back functions.
