March 2016 Lazarus Overview
If you are haven't used Lazarus recently then this tutorial is for you. In it we give users a broad overview of Lazarus and some of its key features. We look at the type of applications you can create with Lazarus, and show you the core concepts to desktop application development it makes so very easy.
Highlights include the two way design process, events handlers, testing and debugging, and deployment. A brief gallery of applications I've personally created with Lazarus is included at the end, and I honestly believe it's the best tool in the world for developing platform agnostic desktop applications. Like the video says, give Lazarus a try.
