Embarcadero Technologies has announced that its Delphi development tool is now the exclusive choice of South African high schools for their introductory computer science curriculum.
The South African Ministry of Education said the “elegance and simplicity of the Delphi computer language and the robustness of Embarcadero’s RAD Studio” were key factors when selecting the language.
“We are very pleased with our choice of Delphi and Embarcadero’s tools to support high school computer education,” said Carina Labuscagne, the ministry’s Chief Education Specialist: CAT and IT.
“Delphi is a great language that helps our students not only learn programming, but also extend their analytical skills for many other subjects.”
“For us, the ability to standardize on a consistent, compatible platform that utilizes a higher language and is easy to learn is critical. We hope that Embarcadero continues to evolve their tools to support our ongoing needs.”
