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: URL
I believe this link will also work: community.borland.com
the DR. Bob link (URL) in the post above mine is a very good site.
Here is a Magazine for you: URL
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...
