Welcome!

You're here to learn more about Delphi, which is great because on this site there are many videos to help you - most of which are free and under 10 minutes long.  If you are serious about learning Delphi, then you will want to buy one of my commercial videos, these are much longer (6 hours each), far more comprehensive, and represent amazing value for money. Building Applications in Delphi using the Visual Component Library Part 1 and Part 2 are perfect for people new to Delphi, but even if you are experienced with Delphi you will still learn new things.

I've been building applications in Delphi since about 1999, and have been producing videos on this site for over 5 years. I've also presented at 3 CodeRage conferences (a total of 5 videos - some of which you'll find on this site).
You can find out more about Part 1 from here or Part 2 here. To get started right away with Part 1, click on the Buy Now button below:

Alister Christie's 'Building Applications in Delphi Using the Visual Component Library' series is an easy to follow, to the point, and no-nonsense method for learning to program in the great language of Delphi. Among other things, Alister's series covers one of the most important, and incredibly vast, parts of the language, the component library. In a well versed, and incredibly easy to follow way, Alister takes each component in Delphi's library and talks about each one of their properties and events. The series' whopping coverage of Delphi components, Alister's incredibly easy to follow instructions, and his down to earth teaching approach, is what really sets this series apart from other training videos. As I mentioned to him already, "You keep making 'em Alister, and I'll keep buying 'em."

Being entirely new to Delphi I found your videos extremely useful because I’m able to actually watch you working. I’ve seen many Delphi code examples on the web but very often they are only code, but for me I wanted to know how the graphical elements were pulled together as well… because you do this while you are explaining the components it has given me a handle on what is going on and how it all comes together. Anyway thank you so much for the video’s. I’ve bought many teaching aids, books etc… in the past but they get opened looked at and then I find my own way in the end so they don’t get used… I have USED your videos!

Thanks once again,
Greg.
I am still watching the first video. Really helpful. There were things I did know, and things I did not know. After I've watched all of it, I am planning to buy the second video.

I'm a newbie to Delphi and was looking round (for a while) for some video's to give me a head start. Luckly for me I found Alister's site - not only are there many free videos and infomation snippits, there are also two (currently) brilliant and comprehensive paid videos. The vid's are a great price and are packed full of info about delphi in general, loads of components, how to use them and some comedy too! If you don't buy them, you'll always be behind me...

Nothing else to add by way of improvements, but if you do another - i'll be purchasing it!

Thanks for all your work - it's a great help to me.

Kind regards,
Guy
