Delphi jumps to 10th place on the TIOBE index!

Posted by on in Programming


Around this time last month, I posted that Delphi had made great trends up on the TIOBE index, but that I thought that it’s place still was not accurately reflected.  Well, I had some discussions about this with TIOBE and this month, Delphi moves on up another two places! Now a top 10 language up 10 places in little more than a year.

    I'd noticed what happened on TIOBE even before reading this article. But something struck me when reading it:

    I have been forced by my choice of profession as an embedded programmer to program in C - a language that, despite using it for 30+ years, I generally despise. But, during this time I have more often than not used a C++ development environment to program in C. Whilst the C++ constructs I could have used were attractive - it was generally accepted that the small footprint of an embedded target system (I'm talking small embedded systems here) meant that you'd best use the available C++ environment to write C code only.

    So: does TIOBE reflect this when considering C and C++?

    Such constraints do NOT generally exist with Object Pascal. I don't believe anybody really writes Pure Pascal when using an Objective Pascal IDE. Not since they dropped WinCrt.pas in most of these IDEs! I'd struggle to think of an environment outside of a school where a programmer is forced NOT to use Objective Pascal when it is available - and hence, who are all these Pure Pascal writers?

    Every year new product and money for every update, this will not let more to up!

    And Updates for older Version like XE7 and XE 8 only with Update Subscription.

    Delphi is a program to create money, money and money.

    Update subscription does not only get you bug fixes. You also get every new major release for the term of your subscription, and for less money than a perpetual license.

    I am a Delphi fun till 1998 and it's really hard to find new programmer to learn Delphi. I try to induce fresh boy with cross compiling. Microsoft do the best strategy. Everybody learn C#. I think if embro do rent model like appmethod will be better. To pay 2000 Euro /per user every year really hard for small companies. Problem is strategy!!!

    i'm independent developer, I acquired for years licenses and upgrades: 2009, CE, XE3, XE4 and XE7 (I love Delphi), but now, it is an untenable situation.

    There are no much difference between upgrades, the value added is little if compared to the effort of the purchase.

    I was try to buy new versions of Delphi ("city XXX"), but dollar price in my country, increased the delphi relative value in a 60%.. now it is really imposible.

    I love Delphi, but "lovers" can't be the niche market of embarcadero, neither big companies exclusively...

    I Agree, strategy is the point!!

    AppMethod was an Embarcadero product, and it's subscription ran to approximately the same price per year as RAD Studio. On the other hand, Update subscription is significantly less than a perpetual license, and gets you each new release included in the price. Update Subscription is less than $600 per year for Professional edition, which amounts to $50 per month.

    Hello,

    Object Pascal is not Delphi only. Lazarus is Object Pascal too.

    This is true, however, FPC is a Delphi clone (by the authors own admission). A boost in the rankings of Object Pascal is good for all pascal compilers.
