Webinar this Thursday, 15:00 BST / 7am PDT, "Software + Database Archeology"

Posted by on in Blogs
If you couldn't make it to one of my Europe tour stops (Moscow, Brussels, London) where I presented the Sofware and Database Archeology process using Delphi 2009, come join my in a live Webinar this Thursday, July 16, at 7am PDT, 15:00 (BST), 16:00 (CEST), 14:00 (GMT/UTC).

I was in London on Wednesday June 10th for a live event at the Old Sessions House. Those in London will know that there was a tube strike for two days starting the night before. That makes two times in the past three years that I have done an event in London during a strike. What are the odds of that happening or am I the cause? For UK Delphi developers (and Delphi developers around the world) who couldn't make it to the London event, I am doing a reprise of the seminar live, online on Thursday July 16th in conjunction with our UK master reseller, Grey Matter Ltd.

I will discuss the latest news about our application developer and database tools and outline the Delphi product roadmap. In addition I'll discuss and demonstrate how you can use Delphi and several of our database tools to perform Software and Database Archaeology on a large, real Delphi application. This part of the demonstration will include:
    1) A Processes for approaching unknown code2) How to Unravel complex applications

    3) A methodology for evaluating frameworks, component libraries, and databases

    4) Analyzing past systems to learn and understand its legacy

Duration of the live webinar is 1 hour and 30 minutes.

    Your effort is very appreciated, David! It's very important to keep contact with your user base. Way to go!


    Do you are aware that the modeling engine (including QA metrics/audits) has basic usability issues and that's why almost everyone who wants such functionality use other tools? (Usually the ModelMaker)
    Also, WRT to 'approach unknown code' we need tools to detect & remove unused or seldom used code in our project(s). For this we need an identifiers occurrence engine. Also, after refactoring engine to delete/remove & consolidate selected code blocks is needed, because after we detect the problems how can we deal with them? Using Copy/Paste?
    For some the above items there are some reports in QC. Also if you want more details, you can drop me a line.
