  • Binding data to client apps
    There are many ways of exchanging data between software programs over local networks or the Internet. Let's take a look at some of them, using the technologies offered by TMS Software for Delphi. We'll be able to communicate between mobile applications, desktop software and Internet sites. This will also be an opportunity to see how you can use a web standard in your Delphi projects to feed an API that can be used natively in JavaScript.

Adrian Gallero

Adrian Gallero is an Electrical Engineer who has been working in Delphi since it was Turbo pascal 4. He has worked in calculating power line distribution for electrical companies in Montevideo and Rio de Janeiro. He lived for over 3 years in Madrid working the development of a telecommunication management system, and over a year in Sydney developing custom solutions for a freight-forwarding company.

He has been working with spreadsheets for longer than he can remember, and in 1996 he developed a small component that allowed his Delphi 1 apps to export the results to a spreadsheet (to his surprise, he learned a year ago that the electrical company is still using those unmodified apps today). This component grew over the years: It was renamed FlexCel in 2001 and it joined the TMS family in 2002. Today FlexCel exists in both Delphi and .NET versions, and they contain over a million lines of code.

 

  • Introduction to Smart Setup

Bernard Roussely

Cryptography and security expert living in Bordaux, France.
Chief architect TMS Cryptography Pack. 

 

Bernard is originally a C developer with experience in cryptography for about 35 years. He learned Pascal in the late 80's with Turbo Pascal and switched to Delphi to update the Cryptography Pack.
He has a strong background in various areas of cybersecurity and data processing and manage Cyberens and Beware Cyberlabs, two small companies dedicated to cybersecurity services and products.

 

 

  • Signing documents (PDF, XML) with different types of digital certificates using TMS Cryptography Pack
    Signing electronic documents is now common practice in the EU, with the electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services (eIDAS) regulation passed in 2014, and spreads rapidly on other continents. 
    eIDAS 2.0 will expand services to include digital identity. It is then important to understand how these services work and how they are implemented in TMS Cryptography Pack.
    We will use the signing of PDF documents to explain how signing works and what protocols are supported in TMS Cryptography Pack.
