I'm going to take part in the Italian presentation of Delphi 2009, to be held in Milan and Rome on September 16 and 18. I'll introduce Delphi 2009, Unicode, language changes, and VCL changes.... in one hour, so I'll just scratch the surface. Other friends will cover database features and ER/Studio integration.

For more info and free registration see www.codegear.it/show_event.php?ID=30167.

I'm also organizing a two-day in-depth seminar on Delphi 2009 for October 22nd and 23rd as you can see on http://www.wintech-italia.it/corsidelphi/delphi2009.htm. If you don't live in Italy, consider that the two-day in-depth workshop will be available as an onsite class at your company location (or can be sold with the help of user groups anywhere in the world). If I get enough requests, I can setup a class in English language here in Italy as well .

My Italian company online shop (http://shop.wintech-italia.com/) is already taking pre-orders of Delphi 2009... and I'll grant a discount to the Delphi 2009 Workshop to anyone ordering from my company.
