Hi, I have over 35 years industrial and commercial programming language experience with various companies, big and small. I previously had several years experience training word processing and accounts software in a corporate environment, and was a top-250 expert and moderator for Experts Exchange. I have a BSc(Hons) degree in Electrical & Electronics Engineering (Specialising in Computing). The tutoring that I am offering is for the Delphi language, which is Pascal-based. I can teach how to create simple programs entirely visually, various programming and design techniques, through to writing SQL database applications using Firebird and IBObjects components, as well as Indy components for such purposes as sending and receiving emails, generating and parsing webpages, etc. Training can be tailored to your requirements if desired, which could include the building of software for commercial use. Remote assistance can be given as well as at your premises. You will have your own Windows pc or laptop and be interested in programming as a hobby or in order to further your education. No formal qualification is needed, and no formal qualification will be acquired. References can be given on your behalf for job-seeking purposes. Please contact me for further details without obligation.
