Below are some comments from happy customers of my premium videos.
Your video has been a life saver for me. I am a developer of software applications built in Delphi and knew nothing of Delphi before I came here. I purchased the video just a short while ago and I can tell you that I wish I had this when I first started here. The benefits of knowing the component library are just as equally important as learning the logic of Delphi. If you can learn the components you can learn the logic as I feel they go hand in hand. This video series is really invaluable to me and I recommend it to everyone here at the office.
Alister’s videos are truly the fastest way to get started in Delphi. I would definitely recommend anyone starting out to buy them. The videos are really easy to follow and interesting – beats reading tedious technical books any day. I especially like working through a real application including a section on using an installer to deploy.
The LearnDelphi.tv site is also a great resource with lots of brilliant free videos and information.
I can’t wait for the next series. Awesome work Alister!
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.
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.
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.
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,
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."
