Introduction 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.



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."

About Alister Christie (me)

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 approaching a million views, and over three 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 website.


I have been maintaining since 2006, (rebranded from in 2011). is now the premier website for providing video tutorials on how to use Delphi.  In addition to the free content that is available, I have also produced a commercial series of videos.  These videos go into far more depth and have better structure than my free content, while still maintaining my informal style that has made my videos so popular in the past.
