The first three lessons in the "Getting Started with Windows and Mac Development" e-Learning series are now available for download. Included for each lesson is a Course Book for Delphi and C++ developers and video replays of the Delphi and the C++ sessions. The course books and video replay links are posted on the "Getting Started" landing page each Tuesday afternoon following a lesson. If you don’t see a link you can also search on the EDN’s Code Central site for my submissions using my author link - http://cc.embarcadero.com/Author/3934 and look for the titles containing "Getting Started with Win/Mac Dev".
The "Getting Started with Windows and Mac Development" series of lessons is targeted at new developers who need to create Windows and Mac applications and want to use FireMonkey to develop using one codebase. Using Delphi to build iOS applications is also covered throughout the lessons. The lessons can also be used by current Delphi and C++Builder developers who want to brush up their skills and get started with the FireMonkey business application platform.
