Alister Christie got their new book cover by running a design contest:
Code Faster in Delphi Book
Check out Alister Christie's Book cover contest…
Code Faster in Delphi
Alister Christie has been programming in Delphi since 1999, building and maintaining applications for diverse industries in New Zealand. He's programmed in C#, Ruby on Rails, Android/Java, but Delphi is his preferred environment. Alister loves teaching and has been producing Delphi Training videos for many years. At the time of publication, his videos have over 1.6 million views. Alister has presented at numerous online CodeRage conferences for thousands of participants, and an international guest speaker at ADUG (Australasian Delphi Users Group) Symposia since 2013. In 2012 Alister became the first New Zealand Delphi expert for the Embarcadero MVP program. Alister holds a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science from Victoria University, Wellington. He lives near Wellington, New Zealand. When Alister isn’t doing all that, he’s investigating new technologies, hanging out with his family, playing guitar, investing in real estate, working out, farming his lifestyle block (hobby-farm), renovating, and running a B’n’B.
Firstly, this book is aimed at making you faster at programming. If you read and absorb the contents of this book it will certainly do just that. Secondly is the implication that programming in Delphi is faster - which I fully agree with. Very powerful and useful applications can be built in Delphi without too much effort - and often much less effort than in other languages or tools. To get the most out of this book you will only need a basic knowledge of Delphi, however this book will be useful to both beginner and expert alike. No matter how long you’ve been using Delphi, you're going to have a whole lot of “I can’t believe I didn’t know that Delphi does that!”, and “I’ve wasted so much time in the past doing this manually!”, and, “where was this book years ago?”. Yeah, I hear you. You’ve got it now, and that’s what counts. This book will not teach you the fundamentals of how to program. This book will not teach you the fundamentals of the Delphi language. This book WILL teach you to Code Faster in Delphi. This book will make you faster at coding, but not better at programming in Delphi - at least not directly - that’s my next book, “Code Better In Delphi”. By writing more code in a shorter space of time, you will, of course, get better in less time because you’ll hopefully have more time to think, and spend much less time pounding keys like a monkey.

Book cover type
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Alister Christie collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
