Looking at those statistics the immediate questions that come to mind are

 

1) How many Delphi developers will remain active after 10 - 20 years?

2) What will be the average age of Delphi developers in 10 years from now?

3) With such a trend, is there a chance that Delphi will vanish from the market in a foreseeable future?

 

OK, I know that there are many younger Delphi developers, but again for Delphi developers, being young means being in 30s!

The answer is "If Delphi didn't die since 1996" then it is very tenacious! Below my thoughts.

 

 

Hi, for the first look, the trend seems to be awful for the future!  Here we have some static picture in borders of this forum - so - it may be not relevant to all Delphi world.

 

Another look - is to look to objective factors main of which are 

 - Unstable situation of Borland in 2000-2010, so Delphi lost many time.

 - New life of Delphi with Embarcadero / IDERA, so no Delphi is overtaking its positions ( every update is step forward and hope for us - Delphi fans)

 

Your activity with UniGUI - is bless proof that with Delphi we can create Rich Internet Applications. Another question is how to populate it! To increase number of users.There are many ways, but one of them is to use the energy of us - fans of your product.

 

As for me i chose UniGUI for the 95% of my projects. I think that UniGUI is front of Delphi world in development for many reasons. When i show my works on forums - people say - "wow! it cannot be done with Delphi !!!" And I say - it is done with Delphi.

 

The way i see to populate - is kind of MVP, some media broadCasting about world of Delphi, world of UniGUI. On our blogs we can do this activity. Last year i had about 300 unique people on my blog, but i devoted myself to learning C#, and lost this auditory.

 

Also we still don't have templates for popular webTasks like eShop, Sites, LandingPages and etc. We need bright projects and examples done with Delphi and UniGUI!

 

For the moment i work on eShop template and want to share it to community soon. 

 

Everything changes. Let's look to TIOBE index - last month Delphi was on 9th place!

(Now 13th, maybe in the end of the month soon will be in top 10)

Regards, Stan

I am 21 and started uniGUI a few months ago when I was still 20, wondering if anyone else is younger than myself. Also work part time whilst doing a full time master in electrical engineering, did undergraduate in economics & finance and was hired based on my skillset and then my job evolved (I work in finance).

So for someone like me with ~10 months industry experience part time and little usage of other languages, I so far enjoy the combination of Delphi + uniGUI (Learn from scratch) and I'm yet to deeply explore its capabilities.

+1  :)

 

but I disagree with "eShop, Sites, LandingPages" - Do not waste Farshad energy on where UniGUI can never compete on an equal footing with PHP, at least he hasn't free resource for that. UniGUI made for web application, not for site, and should move in this direction.

hi, maybe you missed the thread, but answer here...

 

i don't waste Farshad Energy ) I do it by mySelf as experiment in name of love to this framwork. No competition to PHP or etc. Just i was interested to turn it to popular tasks. That's all. In success case it could be added as Demo. There are things to complete this template - turn it to clientSide for example.

 

+1  :)

I agree that the trend is not looking too good.

 

One solution is to include Unigui with Delphi. Sell it to them.

 

Farshad, you should contact Embarcadero and start the negotiations.

 

We would all benefit from that, as the user base would explode 100x

in relatively short time.

 

Just tell them that "You need this, and we only need to agree on the price."

61 years old.  I started with Delphi in 1996 Delphi 1.  Was able to write kick-ass software with Delphi ever since, so, never needed to change, until Delphi got too expensive and buggy, then a year ago I went to Lazarus.  I love Lazarus.  Reminds me of Delphi 1.  Super powerful yet simple and fast.  Why these youngsters think that loading 400GB of garbage, like "Chocolaty" and <what ever else gibberish acronym> in a gigantic stack is somehow "normal" is foreign to me.  Delphi talks directly to the OS's API.  Simple.
