About More Coding in Delphi

This is a book all about writing Delphi code. Sure, there's a bit about component writing, too, but the main focus is on code. It's all about how to use the language in the most effective way to write clean, testable, maintainable Delphi code. It covers a variety of powerful Delphi programming features and techniques including Patterns, Threading, Parallel Programming, Aspect Oriented Programming, writing SOLID code and more. All that, and a foreword by the great David Intersimone!
