    Delphi is a cross-platform Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that supports rapid application development for Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, Google Android, and Apple iOS. It helps you to concentrate on the real business and save yourself the pain of wandering amid GUI widget details or having to tackle inter-platform incompatibilities.

    This course will build on from Part 1, covering topics such as multithreading, using the parallel programming library, and putting Delphi on a server. We’ll also take a look at the new feature of the WebBroker Apache modules and then ride the mobile revolution with FireMonkey. By the end of the course, you will be able to develop and deploy cross-platform applications using Delphi.
