Delphi Programming Almanacs: 1998. - 2012. Something for Every Delphi Developer: Beginner or a Guru!

By December 27, 2012

Follow me on:

in Delphi Almanacs :: According to Wikipedia, an almanac is an annual publication containing tabular information in a particular field or fields often arranged according to the calendar.

A Delphi Programming Almanac would then be an annual reference e-book (?) composed of articles, tutorials, tips and tricks relating to programming in Delphi.

A wannabe Delphi programmer, a Delphi beginner or a Delphi guru / expert? 15 years of Delphi programming content available for you (for free)!

1998. - 2012. Delphi Programming by Zarko Gajic

An almanac for a year lists only articles, tips and resources that were originally published during the selected year. All materials written by Zarko Gajic, some contributed by other Delphi developers.

why aren’t all of these searchable? that would make them useful.

one huge (search enabled) pdf file will be awesome

In stead of asking for more, I would like to express my respect for the incredible amount of dedication shown by Zarko!

Mr. Smelt is, of course, very correct. I have always found Zarko’s articles to be topical, useful, clever and often elegant. I’m simply suggesting that their residual value would be greatly enhanced if his collection could be searched when a dilemma presents itself.

@all: Thanks! Btw, there *is* a search box on top of the page (right top corner) where you can type in queries and it will bring up all the articles related to your search.

All the best for 2010.

Yes there is a search box there but it appears to search far more than just the delphi tip almanacs. It, of course, is better than nothing. Thanks again, Zarko! Happy New Year.

Is there a way to download the ‘almanacs’ in XML, PDF, TXT or Database file for offline usage? :D

How about a CD for sale

Agreed. Love Delphi, but since the delphi help went to the new microsoft help format I’ve used google instead to get my delphi help. I regularly get this site in the top ten and immediately go to it first as its usually the most helpful and most clearly explained with examples.

Keep up the great work, the internet (and Delphi) need more helpful sites like this

MANY MANY MANY Thanks Zarko.
You, you’r blog, and your emails, are a greate contribution to the Delphi community.
Please don’t EVER stop sending us your GREATE mails, and blog posts :)
too bad there is no Delphi for Android/iPhone and other platforms

btw, a small question:
do the developers of Delphi consult with you about what the people want or about what to add?

again, thanks and blessings, for your great job Zarko :)

I agree with everyone here.
I would be willing to pay for a downloadable version of the almanacs in PDF.
I read Zarko regularly.
Thanks for all your efforts.
Happy New Year

Awesome job – keep it up!

Do you guys out there still feel DELPHI has a future ( how many times have i read that poser)?

I am afraid, the lifespan of DELPHI would not extend for more than 10 years – Dot Net – WPF/MVVM – seems to be gaining converts by the day!

Let’s face it – WEB/GESTURE ENABLED application is the future and DELPHI seems to be lacking in BOTH in terms of ease of use, target platforms and evolution.

Well – I may be wrong and it won’t be the FIRST TIME if I am.
