Delphi and its RAD environment (Rapid Application Develoment) - create programs, use of visual represented components - buttons, edit, memo, event handling using Pascal. Prepared dialogs (work with files, printing). Timer. Work with canvas (pictures, images). Pascal - variables, cycles, functions, procedures. Data types, structured data types creation. Typical algorithms - searching, sorting. Recursion, iteration, backtracking. Pointers, dynamic memory. Abstract data types: table, stack, LIFO, list, tree. Binary tree, AVL tree.

Training in the Borland Delphi, students can install the Lazarus as well.
Delphi environment. Simple program.

Programming languages, interpreter, compiler, object-oriented approach, 4GL.
