Where in the world are programmers using Delphi?

Posted by on in Programming

There have been a couple of polls posted on the Google+ Delphi Developer Community by Stefan Glienke (Embarcadero MVP, blogger and developer of Delphi based software including DUnitX). Two of Stefan's recent polls in the G+ Delphi community asked when members first started using Delphi and also how old they are. The polls were only for G+ Delphi Community members and not necessarily a representative sample of the global Delphi developer community.  There was a comment in the developer age poll that wondered where Delphi developers are located. This prompted my to do one of my SQL queries of our registered customer database to see what the top countries look like. The following is the top 15 list of countries where Delphi developers registered their products.

Where are the Delphi Developers

The top 15 countries with Delphi developers (paid versions, NOT free or trial or pirated) are

  1. United States
  2. Germany
  3. Japan
  4. Great Britain
  5. France
  6. Brazil
  7. Russia
  8. China
  9. Netherlands
  10. Poland
  11. South Africa
  12. Canada
  13. Australia
  14. Italy
  15. South Korea

If your country is not in the top 15, download RAD Studio XE8, try it and then purchase it and maybe your country will move up the list. No matter where you live, you'll find Delphi developers across the planet Earth. There are Delphi developers in 241 Countries and Principalities with top level Internet domain suffixes. We are still waiting for someone to register a Delphi product for .AC (Ascension Island, Saint Helena and Tristan da Cunha) and a couple of others!

    Would be interenting to see top 15 countries with current license of XE8 or at least also include XE7. I understand that we may still have people with a Delphi 7 license and still developing with it, but I would say the big part which bought Delphi 7 in past may not be using Delphi anymore. Or maybe the top 15 countries based on licenses sold starting from 2 years, but just mention registered is very vague as I bet that the amount of licenses sold for XE7 and XE8 together may not even one quarter of the licenses sold of Delphi 7.

    The density would be more interesting: Delphi versions per population.

    You linked to my fork of DUnitX. While I made some commits in that project the props for it should go to Vincent. I have projects of my own like DSharp, many parts of Spring4D or TestInsight.

    >Stefan Glienke ... DUnitX
    David, do you mean:
    Vincent Parrett ... DUnitX
    or
    Stefan Glienke ... DSharp
