Building Applications in Delphi with the Visual Component Library - Part 1
In this course 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.
Course length: 6 hours
Building Applications in Delphi with the Visual Component Library - Part 2
Yes that's right, it's back, it's better, it's part 2. This tutorial continues on from where we left off in Part 1. We continue to examine of the Visual Component Library, enhance our Periodic Table, write a couple of new periodic tables (using a TGridPanel and TPaintBox) and look at how Drag and Dock works.

Building Applications in Delphi with the Visual Component Library - Part 3
In this tutorial we tackle two of the most complex Delphi components in the VCL: TListView and TTreeView - almost half of this video is dedicated to them. I find myself using TListView regularly in developing my VCL applications, so it is a very important component to cover. TTreeView is also important especially if you want to represent hierarchical information. In the second half we cover all of the dialog components, you will find yourself using the open and save dialogs all the time, so it is important to know them inside and out. In each video I cover a property that is used by most of the controls, this time we look at context sensitive help - a highly important topic for the usability of your applications.
Estimated length 6 hours.
These courses are also included in the following bundle:
I have been programming in Delphi since 1999, primarily building and maintaining applications for the real estate, banking and legal industries here in New Zealand, in these roles I have also used other technologies such a C#, Ruby on Rails, Android/Java, but Delphi is my favorite environment. I have presented at numerous online CodeRage conferences, these conferences last for an entire week with thousands of participants (the replays for all of my presentations are available on this site), and I was an international guest speaker at ADUG in 2013. Most of my videos also appear on YouTube, for which I have over a million views, and over five thousand subscribers.
In 2012 Embarcadero invited me to join a select group of Delphi experts from around the world to form the Embarcadero MVP program, to which fewer than 100 people worldwide have been admitted (I'm the only one from New Zealand).
I also play guitar, invest in real estate, regularly work out at the gym, and of course maintain the LearnDelphi.tv courses.
