Learn Cross-Platform Programming With Pascal

And save $60!
Wednesday 7 November 2012.

I love Object Pascal. It’s a nice, clear, modern object oriented language. Trouble is, it can be expensive to get into. Embarcadero Software’s commercial Delphi environment for Object Pascal may cost you a few thousand dollars! But there’s an alternative. An it’s free.

Lazarus is a slick visual IDE that lets you design applications by dragging and dropping controls onto a form. You can add code to handle events and run or debug at the click of a button. Lazarus uses the Free Pascal compiler – and it is available for Windows, OS X and Linux. You can write applications on one of these platforms and compile them on another. In my view, this is the easiest way to break into cross-platform application development.

Lazarus makes it easy to design and code an application on Windows…

…then compile and run it on a Mac (or vice versa)!

If you want to learn Lazarus and Object Pascal, where do you begin? Well, I’ve just published a new multimedia programming course on Udemy that will guide you from your very first steps (basic Pascal syntax) right through to the nitty-gritty details of Object Pascal class hierarchies, user-defined types and object-serialization.

I’ve already taught over 2,500 people to program in my top-selling Ruby course on Udemy. I’m even more excited about my Pascal course. This will not only take you into the lucrative world of cross-platform development with Lazarus but it could also be your first step into the high-earning world of commercial development with Delphi.

My Learn Programming With Pascal course has…
- Over 40 lectures
- Hours of video content
- Source code for Delphi and Lazarus on Windows and Lazarus OS X
- A 124-page eBook, The Little Book of Pascal

Learn Programming With Pascal normally costs $99

You can subscribe for just $39 – that’s a 60% saving

But you’ll need to be quick. This offer is only good until the end of November. To get the complete course at this special price, follow this link:

Happy (cross-platform) programming! :-)

    I wish your course covered pointers. I think you would attract a lot of frustrated C and C++ programmers if you were to include pointers.

      Thanks for the comment. I’ll think about adding something on this topic. In the meantime, here is a pretty good overview of using pointers in Object Pascal: http://rvelthuis.de/articles/articles-pointers.html
