The 2015 Embarcadero Year in Review by David I.

  

2015 was a huge year for Embarcadero, our developer tools and our worldwide developers and partners. We shipped two major releases of RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder. We delivered 52 Developer Skill Sprint webinars (6am, 11am and 5pm). CodeRage X for Delphi and C++Builder took place in October with more than 70 technical sessions. We moved forward to become part of Idera Software and keeping the Embarcadero brand name for the Developer tools and InterBase business. Most importantly, we are planning for a great 2016 with all of your investment, encouragement and feedback.  Here are links to just a few of the many accomplishments and stories from 2015.
