Description : Pascal is the standard structured programming language for the personal computer. The novice programmer needs a strong grounding in the fundamentals of structured programming, whether preparing to program under Microsoft Windows, DOS, or the Apple Macintosh. Pascal is also a precursor to programming languages such as C++, Java, and Delphi. "Learn Pascal" teaches the novice programmer the basics of Pascal through hands-on examples and easy-to-follow drills in each chapter, and guides readers from the basic fundamentals to advanced techniques needed to effectively program real-world applications. The book also includes advanced material on problem-solving algorithms, which provide the experienced Pascal user with specialized tools to solve specific programming problems. The companion CD contains the examples and drills discussed in the book, along with the drill solutions. Also included is a full retail version of Delphi 4 Standard Edition. Sam Abolrous is a software engineer with an extensive background in software design and programming. He earned his electrical engineering degree from the University of Alexandria, Egypt, and is currently a programmer/writer with Microsoft Corp. Abolrous has published articles for leading programming journals and has written over 50 books on computer science ranging from C++ to COBOL programming, including Wordware's "Learn C in Three Days" and "Learn Pascal in Three Days, Second Edition".
Description : Improve your Delphi programming skills by building robust applications for Android, iOS, and Windows platform Key Features Build responsive user interfaces (UIs) for desktop and mobile with FireMonkey Implement a microservices architecture using the Rapid Application Development(RAD) server Create clones of popular applications like Instagram and Facebook using Delphi 10.3 Book Description Delphi is a cross-platform programming language and software development kit that supports rapid application development for Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, Android, and iOS. With the help of seven practical projects, this book will guide you through the best practices, Delphi Run-Time Library (RTL) resources, and design patterns. Whether you use the Visual Component Library (VCL) or FireMonkey (FMX) framework, these design patterns will be implemented in the same way in Delphi, using Object Pascal. In the first few chapters, you will explore advanced features that will help you build rich applications using the same code base for both mobile and desktop projects. In addition to this, you’ll learn how to implement microservice architecture in Delphi. As you get familiar with the various aspects of Delphi, you will no longer need to maintain source code for similar projects, program business rules on screens, or fill your forms with data access components. By the end of this book, you will have gained an understanding of the principles of clean code and become proficient in building robust and scalable applications in Delphi. What you will learn Get to grips with the advanced features of RTL Understand how to deal with the paradigm change between multiplatform projects Build rich interfaces with Google's Material Design features Understand how to implement design patterns in Delphi Turn a mobile device into a remote controller with app tethering technology Build a multi-database system using VCL Who this book is for This book is for developers, programmers, and IT professionals who want to learn the best market practices by implementing practical projects. Prior knowledge of the Delphi language is a must.
