Delphi High Performance

By: Primož Gabrijelčič

Overview of this book

Delphi is a cross-platform Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that supports rapid application development for Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, Google Android, iOS, and now Linux with RAD Studio 10.2. This book will be your guide to build efficient high performance applications with Delphi. The book begins by explaining how to find performance bottlenecks and apply the correct algorithm to fix them. It will teach you how to improve your algorithms before taking you through parallel programming. You’ll then explore various tools to build highly concurrent applications. After that, you’ll delve into improving the performance of your code and master cross-platform RTL improvements. Finally, we’ll go through memory management with Delphi and you’ll see how to leverage several external libraries to write better performing programs. By the end of the book, you’ll have the knowledge to create high performance applications with Delphi.

Final words

Before I leave you for good, I would like to say a few parting words.

It is obvious that you want to learn, otherwise you wouldn't have made it to this very last page. Don't stop here! While this book contains lots of interesting information, it is by no means a definitive work. There is so much more to be learned, so much more to find!

Let this be your guiding line—never stop learning. Learn what others have to say, even if they contradict something I have said in this book. Maybe they are right and I am wrong. Follow what other languages are doing and what libraries exist for them. That is the source of many great ideas. Write good code. Write bad code. Find why it is bad and fix it. Never stop moving.

Explore. Experiment. Evolve!
