Swindell: Native code remains the core foundation of application development

Michael Swindell writes: “… Native code remains the core foundation for desktop, client/server, and workstation application development. ISVs and Micro ISVs rely on native code to deliver high-performance packaged software, and the ubiquity of multicore architectures enables programmers with abilities in native languages like C++ and Delphi to drive application development in high-growth industries like healthcare, financial markets, and services and telecommunications. …”

It’s good to be a Delphi developer.

Edit: I guess this is an infomercial 😛 – Well, I bought it 🙂

  1. If you remember that after Deplhi 7, Borland produced a .NET version and now we are back to native applications. Says it all really.The browser apps give options which were not there 15 years ago, so I respect that I may need to develop a browser app for some situations and native code for others. I would determine which one to develop with in the same way I would choose a language to use for the project at hand.There are 10s of 1000s of Delphi programmers out there and some of us are around from before Delphi 1. I am still using it and if they are concentrating on native code then that sends a shot across my bow. In conclusion, horses for courses – but the default is native code!
