Overview

Delphi is a sophisticated Windows programming environment, suitable for beginners and professional programmers alike. The application lets you create self-contained, user friendly Windows applications in a very short time. Your program's windows are 'drawn' on the screen, so that you can always see exactly what the eventual application will look like. This design work is done without writing any code, bypassing the more traditional, trial-and-error approach of pre-Windows programming languages. When the user interface is complete, there is still a great deal of work to be done, of course. However, the Delphi programming language is both powerful and easy to master, so even complex tasks can be finished surprisingly quickly. This Made Simple book is aimed at those who are new to programming, or new to Delphi. No previous programming experience is necessary, though familiarity with the use of Windows is assumed. Delphi is a comprehensive programming environment and a book of this size can only give a brief introduction to the subject. However, the information in this book should be enough to give you a flavour of Delphi and show you its potential for developing professional Windows applications.
