New Developer Skill Sprints for 2016

Embarcadero wrapped up their 2015 skill sprints with a bang. Dave Millington gave a great presentation on writing plugins for the Rad Studio IDE using the latest APIs. If you've ever been curious about how to put something in the splash screen or about box or how to draw in the code editor, Dave covers all of this and a lot more. The replay is available here.

Developer skill sprints are short technical presentations made by Embarcadero staff, users, partners and MVPs that focus on a single topic. There is a new Delphi skill sprint every Tuesday with the C++ equivalent on Thursday (if you're in to that kind of thing). There are aired at three separate times to help accommodate people in different time zones, followed by a live Q&A with the author. If you can't catch these live, replays are published online. Allow a little bit of time, though. The replays include relevant parts of the Q&A, so they require some editing.

Embarcadero announced their skill sprints for the first quarter of 2016. Hopefully there's a little something in there for everyone. I know I plan to sit in on four of the first five. Especially the one on data visualisation tomorrow. Nice.
