Delphi: An Evolving Programming Language

Many applications around today were made possible by some of the first versions of the Delphi programming language, some as old as 20 years. Delphi has since evolved dramatically, and developers often wonder about the difficultly in migrating to the latest editions. Luckily, migrating across several decade-old versions of Delphi is manageable, but it does not come without its hurdles.

What is known today as Delphi started with Turbo Pascal programming language, originally introduced by Borland as an IDE which allowed programmers to quickly write code with fewer errors. This feature was adopted and further developed into the Object Pascal language, an object-oriented programming language which allows for intuitive data modeling, data integrity, and reusability across distributed systems. Eventually, Delphi was sold off to Embarcadero and has since then seen dramatic changes.

Despite its age, Delphi continues to do well, being used to develop enterprise solutions, Point-of-Sale (POS) systems, native applications for various platforms (Linux, Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS), and the Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. It remains a very popular programming language as it continues to evolve to better fit the technologies and requirements of today.

As Delphi changes with each update, many users are finding themselves in need of migrating to newer versions. However, finding the right developers who accurately understand Delphi as well as its evolution into a newer technology can be a challenge.

Not many programmers can ensure the viability of a company's Delphi systems, or help migrate to its newer versions while preserving data integrity. Those in need of any variety of Delphi programming services should reach out to Chetu's Delphi programmers who are experts in data migration services, modern application development, and project rescue services.
