Well, its listed in the 'Freebies' section...

...I'll give you a second or two to work it out.

sorry - that wasn't clear on the HUKD app... just came up with all the normal deals.

Use this at Uni, nice code, wish I had time to play with it now. Nice spot !

This was originally Borland Delphi back in the mid 90s and was best in class at the time. Mind you it was up against Microsoft Visual Basic 3 which wasn't difficult competition to beat.
It's a bit niche I suspect these days and the Pro version costs £1,390 and there are two tiers above that so rare to see them give away the Starter Edition.
I used to use Delphi 7 (2002) and earlier versions which no longer install under Windows 7 or later.

Long time Delphi developer here. Started with Delphi 1 on Windows 95 creating apps for Windows 3.1

Unless you really need to continue with Delphi for a job or existing projects, I wouldn't advise to learn Delphi via this offer. Instead get visual studio from Microsoft for free.

Alternatively, if.you need to use a Pascal language there is the free open source project lazarus use that is a lot lighter and will learn you the basics you'll need before.moving on.
I still use lazarus for quick builds of throwaway projects.

Good input.
I know Delphi so for me it should be easier to use than Lazarus although I haven't tried using it in depth.
A good thing about Lazarus is that it is cross platform so also works with Linux and macOS; only 32 bit for macOS though. lazarus-ide.org/
Visual Studio Community offers amazing facilities so as you say for newcomers it makes more sense - LINK.
Delphi for me has been for small home projects as that's all I do these days.
