The decision to include CodeGear came after extensive research into Russia's educational system
SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. (PRWEB) February 1, 2008
The sale, one of CodeGear's largest in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa), is part of a sweeping $100 million Russian federal initiative called the National State Project of High-Grade Education. By licensing the software packages in school settings and standardizing what products are used, the government hopes to increase the quality of education across Russia by providing teachers and students with access to the best information technologies available.
Delphi, Delphi for .NET, and C++Builder provide students and teachers all the tools they need to quickly and easily create rich database driven applications for Microsoft(R) Windows(TM) and the Web. Many high-performance engineering and scientific applications as well as leading Web-based applications, Internet messaging programs, computer games and utilities around the world have been developed using Delphi and C++Builder.
"The decision to include CodeGear came after extensive research into Russia's educational system," said Felix Muchnik, general director of Softkey, one of Russia's leading software resellers. "The power and ease-of-use of Delphi makes it ideal for developers of all levels. Government reports indicate that Delphi and Pascal are among the most widely used programming languages in the country and use of CodeGear tools is so prolific that more than 6000 different titles devoted to CodeGear and Borland products have been published for the Russian market."
"Russia has a long history of students programming in Delphi and Pascal," said CodeGear CEO, Jim Douglas. "Developers around the globe even called Delphi the 'easiest to use' IDE in Evans Data Corporation's 2007 Developer Choice IDE user survey. It's exciting to see this trend continue with a new generation of developers as these students go on to develop next generation applications for some of the world's most progressive industries."
