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.

About the author

Primož Gabrijelčič started coding in Pascal on 8-bit micros in the 1980s and he never looked back. In the last 20 years, he was mostly programming high-availability server applications used in the broadcasting industry. A result of this focus was the open sourced parallel programming library for Delphi—OmniThreadLibrary. He's also an avid writer and has written several hundred articles, and he is a frequent speaker at Delphi conferences where he likes to talk about complicated topics, ranging from memory management to creating custom compilers.

About the reviewers

Stefan Glienke, since his very first steps with Turbo Pascal in school, was passionate about programming. In his spare time, he worked at a software company using Visual Basic and started learning C++ and Delphi and decided to start an apprenticeship as a software developer after graduation.

Over the years, he developed an interest in software architecture and began helping fellow developers improve their skills, participating in several open source projects, such as Spring4D. He is also the author of TestInsight.

Stefan has worked as reviewer on the books Coding in Delphi and Dependency Injection in Delphi.

I'd like to thank Primoz for writing this incredible book and suggesting me as a technical reviewer. I'd also like to thank Nitin Dasan and Ulhas Kambali from Packt for their help and patience. Also, big thanks go to my parents who helped me with my relocation, which was happening at the same time as I was doing this review.


Bruce McGee is the founder of Glooscap Software, a software development and consulting company in Toronto, Ontario. He is also a long-time Delphi user, which he continues to work with every day.
