Testimonial

I very much like the style of your videos, a little informal and conversational at times which helps to understand the thought process behind the code. Many of them are still too advanced for me though.


Hope you continue with the blog videos as well, enjoy them very much.


I’d like to thank you for your free videos, there a fantastic resource for people like myself who struggle on in almost complete isolation.


I’ve watched most of your free videos and I have purchased both of your Delphi videos. I’ll definitely purchase number three if you get it done.

Building Applications in Delphi Using the Visual Component Library - Part 1

The fastest way to get started in Delphi

In this video we cover building applications in Delphi from the ground up, we start with "Hello, World!" at the console and later build a periodic table of the elements, in between we look, in great detail, at about 20 VCL components and their properties.  You can purchase the full video through share*it.

You can also watch an example (you will likely need to right click and "Save As").  The file is in the same format as the full video - the sample file is about 18MB / 10 minutes. Be aware that the full video is over 6 hours long and over 500MB.

The video is a .MP4 container with H264 video and low bitrate AC3 Audio - it should play in most modern media players, but I'd recommend you try VLC, which will play just about anything.

There are two example CSV files that we use in building the periodic table example, they are a list of elements and their properties and the periodic table layout
