    Delphi 7 Books


    Here is a good place to start on the web.

    http://delphi.about.com/
    and
    http://www.drbob42.com/

    There used to be a lot more Delphi web sites, just like there used to be a lot more books. Check out Marco Cantu, Charlie Calvert or Pacheco & Teixeira for authors. You might find some used books on the web that are still good resources even though out of date regarding the Delphi version.

    Talking There is plenty of material out there...


    Borland has been making better-than-Microsoft development tools for more than 10 years. I started out using delphi before delphi was created. Back in the MS DOS days it was called Turbo Pascal. ...And just in case you're wondering--No I'm not 50 to 60 years old. Just turned 31 this year.

    The first place to go would be: www.borland.com

    I believe this link will also work: community.borland.com

    the DR. Bob link (www.drbob42.com) in the post above mine is a very good site.

    Here is a Magazine for you: www.delphizine.com.

    Also use the newsgroups that borland provides. You will need a news reader such as outlook express: I believe the address is (nntp://newsgroups.borland.com).

    I have these books in my collection:
    - Mastering Delphi 6 (Cantu)
    - Mastering Delphi 7 (Cantu)
    - Delphi 5 Developers Guide (Teixeira/Pacheco)
    - Delphi 6 Developers Guide (Teixeira/Pacheco)
    - Delphi 7 Developers Guide (Teixeira/Pacheco)
    - Delphi COM Programming
    - Advanced Delphi Developer's Guide to ADO (Fedorov/Elmanova)
    - Mastering Borland C++ v3.1 (old DOS/Win3.11 book)
    - Mastering Turbo Pascal 6
    - Mastering Turbo Pascal 7
    - C++ Builder 5 Developer's Guide
    - C++ Builder 6 Developer's Guide
    - Borland C++ Builder 3 Unleashed

    Before you say "I'm not interested in C++". The C++ Builder product is the same as the Delphi product, but the underlying language is C++. This bring the speed of code, and speed of developement to both languages. But wait there's more....
    The same could be said for Borland's Java product, JBuilder.

    I hope this large post helps...
