Introduction

LearnDelphi.tv is the Internets premier site for instructional video on using Delphi.  Since about 2007 I've been producing free video tutorials on using Delphi.  More recently I've created a series of commercial videos which provide amazing value for money.  While aimed at beginners, even seasoned Delphi users should find the content useful.

Training and Consultancy

Sometimes watching videos and reading articles isn't enough to learn what you need - often it is far more helpful to talk to a real person.  Finding a Delphi expert you can communicate with can be a tricky problem - no longer. Alister Christie is now available on Skype for consultation on Delphi problems and training.

Testimonial

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."

In this video 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.  You can purchase the full video through share*it.

You can also watch an example (you will likely need to right click and "Save As").  The file is in the same format as the full video - the sample file is about 18MB / 10 minutes. Be aware that the full video is over 6 hours long and over 500MB.

The video is a .MP4 container with H264 video and low bitrate AC3 Audio - it should play in most modern media players, but I'd recommend you try VLC, which will play just about anything.

There are two example CSV files that we use in building the periodic table example, they are a list of elements and their properties and the periodic table layout
