This book will make you a faster Delphi developer, it doesn't matter if you are just starting out, or have been using Delphi since version 1, you will find all sorts of tips, tricks and hacks to boost your productivity.
This video covers how to handle Command Line Parameters in your Delphi applications, with them you can make your applications more flexible giving them some initial state (such as "myprog.exe /SafeMode") or instructing them to perform some actions at start up ("myprog.exe /TakeOverWorld"). This video is about 14 minutes long and is available on YouTube.
This is just a quick look at some of the resources available for when you get stuck on a Delphi problem. The video is (as always) available on YouTube. While there is a bit of self promotion in this video, I do cover many of the other commercial resources out there - although I did forget to mention that I am available for consultancy/traning (i.e. for a fee) if you need to talk to a real person about your Delphi problem.
This video is going to be the first in a series on porting an application from the VCL to FireMonkey. In this first part we take a quick look at the application and get it compiling in Delphi XE3. You can watch it on YouTube. The video is almost thirteen minutes long.
In this video we take a look at how we can use XML Data Bindings to simplify the handling of XML files. XML Data Bindings allows you to generate Delphi classes and interfaces that wrap around TXMLDocument and letting you manipulate the XML Document like it was a Delphi object. This video is about 50 minutes long and was prepared for CodeRage 7. It is also the second part in a series of videos on XML in Delphi, you can find more about Part 1 here. You can watch this video on YouTube.
In this video we take a look at the various object orient abstractions that Delphi provides. Starting with a public field, then a public property, then to an interface (with nothing public on the class). This video is about 5 minutes long and you can watch it on YouTube.
This time Alister Christie talks about the introduction in XE3 of record helpers for primitives - which allow you to do things like ShowMessage(123456.ToString). The video is 9 minutes long and you can watch it on YouTube. Also see the blog posts by Marco Cantu and Rodrigo Ruz.
This time we are having a look at what has been added to FireMonkey in Delphi XE3, in particular the new Visual LiveBindings (which is new to both the VCL and FireMonkey), Anchors (which were introduced to the VCL an age ago) and Actions (again, ported over from the VCL). In this video we build the classic FishFacts / Biolife example using the latest Delphi features. Watch it on YouTube, it is over 6 minutes long.
