Move beyond the confines of your application and add online content in
just 50 lines of code.
Join us with Alister Christie from New Zealand for this live Q&A and webinar on scraping the web for live and always up-to-date art work in your Delphi application.
In this session Alister shows you how to spice up your application with image content scraped from the WikiMedia website. Technologies used in this session are NetHTTP, JSON, Regular Expressions and XML storage with the ClientDataSet. At the end Alister goes down the rabbithole to add additional compatibility with a missing JPEG format in the VCL. Just for fun!
After this workshop you can easily use the code to create your own web crawler or scraper to add online content to your application. Please make sure the media you scrape can be used freely.
The Q&A at 09:45 will be handled by Alister (for him its 21:45), so this is a chance to meet him live online. I’ll be there as well.
