The Australian Delphi Users Group (ADUG) is an organisation dedicated to providing a forum for activities and information that promote and improve the professional use of Delphi and related products and services in the Australian developer community.
ADUG members come from a variety of backgrounds (hobbyist, professional and retired) and environments offering a wide range of Delphi and other software and hardware skills.
By becoming an ADUG member, you not only enhance your Delphi knowledge, but join a professional network offering information resources, knowledge exchange and the opportunity to make valuable contacts. You also get the opportunity to contribute to your programming community.
The Australian Delphi User Group (ADUG) has been active since 1994 when Delphi 1 was in beta. We started in Melbourne but have been truly national for some years. Our electronic mailing list which has turned into our forums is one of the most popular interactive resources for Australian Delphi developers. Local chapters run meetings and other activities in most states.
Delphi offers the intuitive ease of use you expect from a “rapid application development” tool combined with a sophisticated object oriented programming language. Delphi incorporates the Object Pascal language. Delphi is now into the 11.x series, with the latest versions able to compile to Win32, Win64, Linux, OSX, iOS and Android platforms.
If you would like to start to learn to use Delphi, Embarcedero has a version of Delphi called Delphi Community Edition which is free, but has some licensing restrictions on its use.
