Christmas 🎄 surprise!
I admit this blog has been a bit quiet lately, but there has been a good reason for it. I just uploaded my next Delphi book to Amazon for publication!
After publishing the second edition of TMS WEB Core at the beginning of this year, this book will be a hands-on experience once again. It is full of practical hands-on examples to create beautiful, modern applications with Delphi. For the first time, a color version will be offered right from the start. The colors really add to the readability of source code and the screenshots. Sadly, the color version is not available in Australia or Japan. The black and white version will be available worldwide.
Here is the text from the back of the book. It will be published within the next days. Just in time for Christmas!
