INFOCAN MANAGEMENT PRESENTS INTERNET, KYLIX AND PALM
CROSS PLATFORM DEVELOPMENT WITH DELPHI WORLD TOUR

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - January 9, 2001 - InfoCan Management announces
another revolution in web based development training.  Back by popular
demand, InfoCan Management offers two-day seminars exploring Internet, Kylix
and Palm Cross Platform Development with Delphi.  Response to the one-day
seminar in November 2000, was so incredible that eleven more cities have
been added to the tour.  Sponsored by ASTA Technology Group, Pocket
Technologies and VMware, dates are now scheduled and the tour will commence
in February 2001.  Please refer to the online registration at
<http://www.infocan.com/idwdtour> for a listing of scheduled dates and
cities.

The first day of this seminar is a condensed version of what is normally a
five-day hands-on training program for Internet Development with Delphi 5.
The seminar is aimed specifically at Delphi developers who have the need to
move their existing applications to the Internet. Since its debut in late
April, this class has sold out every scheduled date.

See for yourself how you can leverage your knowledge and investment in
Delphi and evolve to the next generation of cyberspace computing. Since
1997, InfoCan Management has been working with our clients to help them
migrate their existing Client/Server based applications to n-tier, web-based
distributed applications. This course was written based on our experiences
from these projects.  Please refer to the InfoCan website at
<http://www.infocan.com/idwdtour> for a list of the topics to be covered.

The second day of the seminar is aimed at developers that are already
experienced with Delphi and need to migrate their existing applications to
platforms other than Windows.  We will explore Kylix, the high performance
Rapid Application Development Tool for Linux, and other cross platform
development using Delphi.

With the introduction of Kylix, Borland has opened the door for Delphi
developers to take their skills beyond the Windows platform.  This seminar
will focus on topics such as migration concerns, cross platform
compatibility issues as well as developing native Palm applications with
full database connectivity using an Optic Pascal language.  A number of
complimentary tools will be demonstrated to highlight some of the power and
shortcuts in making the transition.

COST:       Two-day seminar USD $699.00
                  One-day seminar USD $400.00
      50% of the seminar fee is redeemable on registration of any of our
5-day training programs
