In this video we take a look at the Microsoft Speech API, in particular the text to speech facilities. And we create a small application that can speak some text in a memo control. This video is a bit over 7 minutes long and you can watch it here.
In this movie we take a look at what happens when constructors and destructors raise exceptions, in particular how to arrange you try..finally blocks to best effect. This movie is over 16 minutes long and you can watch it here.
In this movie we take a look at what Class Helpers are. There is still a bit of debate as to whether class helpers are good or evil - I think this is because people are using them beyond what they were intended for - which is exactly what we do in this video which you can watch here.

In this Delphi training movie we take a look at how to create forms, yes I know Delphi can do this for you automatically - but sometimes you will want to do it for yourself.

In this Delphi tutorial we are going to look at how to take advantage of the OnDrawColumnCell event on the TDBGrid component.

PS. Sky Blue is not compulsory (and perhaps not even recommended)
In this movie we look at pasting images from the clipboard that were generated in Word and The GiMP. We also take our first look at making macros in the Delphi IDE.
