February is a big month for Delphi and Embarcadero. Delphi was first introduced to the world on Valentine’s day 28 years ago, and has evolved with the times with every passing year since then. We always have good cause to celebrate every February, but this year we’ve got a triple whammy plus a surprise in the works.
Read on to find out what you can expect in February.

Delphi’s 28th Anniversary
On 14 February Delphi will be celebrating its 28th anniversary, looking to the future as a market-leading framework for enterprise-grade applications with an enduring and appealing value proposition in an industry evolving at breakneck pace.
As a toolset and framework, Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio have consistently evolved with the times. In the hands of Embarcadero’s product managers and the company’s commitment to excellence, RAD Studio has always been and remains one of the best possible software development investment options in the market.
Delphi’s 28th anniversary also coincides with DelphiCon2023, extending from 14 to 16 February, with an impressive lineup of Embarcadero staff, MVPs, tech partners and software luminaries hosted by Embarcadero Chief Developer Advocate Jim McKeeth and an equally impressive agenda.
DelphiCon is the celebration of all things Delphi, and an opportunity to look closely at the best of Delphi today and tomorrow. That includes the latest components, books, plugins, and libraries that will make you a better developer.

The Delphi Innovation Timeline Infographic
Want to explore the history of Delphi and software development? This time last year we published Delphi 27th Anniversary “Information Technology Innovation Timeline” infographic, which traces the evolution of computer languages other than Delphi and Object Pascal, from the early days of Python, Visual Basic and HTML to the latest versions of Java, Swift, C# and C++; the evolution of mobile devices, from the Motorola StarTAC, released in 1996 to the Google Pixel 6 and iPhone 13; the advent of new operating systems like iOS and Android; and the evolution of browsers like Chrome and Edge, and the advent of social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn.
