There are only 2 days left to take advantage of the Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio special offers. The last day to take advantage of the offers is June 28, 2010. Following the format of the "Late Show with David Letterman Top Ten list", here are the "number 2" reasons to use Delphi, C++Builder, Delphi Prism and RAD Studio.
- 2. Delphi - Speed your way from prototype to production – get your ideas started fast with rapid prototyping using the time-tested, extensible, rich and full-featured Visual Component Library. You get a full-powered and simple-to-use set of components for building amazingly rich user interfaces. Then add additional functionality with your own code and third party components to take your ideas to production without skipping a beat.
- 2. C++Builder - Free your customers from keyboards with dazzling touch based UIs – Rapidly build touch based GUI, tablet, touchpad, and kiosk applications, and easily touch-enable your existing applications. C++Builder gives you flexible gesture support with interactive multi-touch on Windows 7 and gesture support on Windows 2000, XP and Vista; as well as support for input from multiple sources including mouse, pen and touch screen.
- 2. Delphi Prism - Exceed your expectations with the full-featured Delphi Prism development language - Delphi Prism provides an easy-to-learn syntax that is based on Object Pascal. The language delivers many advanced features that outpace other Microsoft .NET languages on the market. Plus, the same language support can be found with the included open source Mono framework and its equivalent .NET technologies. While staying true to its Delphi and Pascal roots, the modern Delphi Prism language helps developers move into the future by providing innovative language features, such as generics, sequences, queries, Async Methods, Extension Methods, parallel computing, Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) and many others.
- 2. RAD Studio - Any Database, Architecture, or Protocol - RAD Studio’s DataSnap® framework and dbExpress™ data access drivers enable you to build one system that can seamlessly connect to a variety of data sources while retaining vendor-specific database features and unencumbered native performance and control. So while other RAD tools limit you to a specific database or architecture, or rely on “universal” data connectivity options that sacrifice performance and control, RAD Studio’s openness provides the flexibility and performance you need to build superior real-world native code and managed code applications.
