I find about 10 Delphi jobs in the entire USA. I know they are selling this product to somebody.

I have often through it would be good if EMBT would release the contact information of companies using Delphi (with their consent of course). It would not only help developers find Delphi shops, but would also validate their sales numbers to some degree. It's hard to believe there are 3 million users (or whatever the latest number EMBT claims) worldwide when all I see in Canada are Delphi products being replaced with C# .NET solutions.

My ad on Indeed.com recently expired. Including myself, there are 9 full-time Delphi developers +1 Delphi intern working on a Delphi based n-tier software application at my company. I recently started advertising for C# Devs as I can't find any Delphi devs willing to relocate (Davenport, IA), work full-time, and not be extremely expensive. The problem with the good Delphi devs is that they are few and far between and are typically paid quite well so they are hard to obtain.

Look me up and email me a resume with salary requirements. http://www.promaxunlimited.com/directory.html

Hi,

With a company with that number of developers, I would think it would be
possible to hire in newbies right out from computer school and train them.

This way you are getting people that are trained in your way of working,
and your methods, and at the same time actually putting a positive angle
on the spiral.

best regards

The problem with most newbies is as soon as they finish training and
gain some experience they update their resumes and start looking for
better paying jobs.

We're doing that - I listed 9 full time developers and 1 intern. One of the 9 was also an intern that recently went full time. In addition, a local high school is committed to providing us interns in the future, and they also committed to offer a Delphi programming course so they have some exposure before they start.

No young person is going to want to learn Pascal at all, much less hitch their career to a legacy technology. I know this was how I treated COBOL in the early 1990s. I took a C in a COBOL class because I didn't hand in a single COBOL II programming assignment, having vowed never to write a line of COBOL again. :-) Fortunately I aced every test, which got me the C. Some former classmates got rock star salaries to make Y2K fixes a few years later :-), but I regretted nothing.

Recall the original poster's statement - 10 Delphi listings in America. Why would a young person want to spend their time learning a tool with that little future job prospects?

The small number of active Delphi developers are charging a large figure precisely because the people hiring them are those stuck with massive legacy code bases they need to maintain and can't find anyone willing to code in Delphi.

Curious. What is considered a large figure?

Me too. One is the student which even dug out Tasm32 from Delphi, after
I showed him that it is a command line application and not linked in any
menu ;-)

If you would entertain remote team members, devs are not as hard to find as you think. Delphi work has dried up in Canada except for the east and west coast. Lots of devs that can't relocate are in between, including myself. If you're interested, shoot me an email at lhengen at tpersistent dot com

We are based in Vancouver, Canada and have about 10 Delphi Developers at our office. If we could find good / experienced Delphi developer, we would hire 3 or more immediately. Last month we hired someone from Toronto (300 Miles away) as we could not find a local candidate. If anyone interested (and willing to relocate to Beautiful / expensive ), can check our site at www.3log.com

Brazil is now where America was 10+ years ago in regards to Delphi; still lots of maintenance jobs, but new software is moving to more mainstream languages.

Pure unfounded speculation on your part without any basis at all.

Brazil is humming with Delphi including new projects to the point that
we for the first time ever have made a Atozed country site:

One of the biggest problems is that if you use any of the major job sites (Dice, Monster, Indeed, Ziprecruiter, etc.) most of the job listings will be for the DELPHI that is NOT the development tool. It is for Delphi the automotive product. Or matches on companies located in PhilaDELPHIa. The major job search engines are terrible in that they do not match language/application skills with what the businesses are seeking.

In America they're selling updates to a handful of people to maintain legacy code. In many cases they're not even doing that - for instance the Doug and Melissa toy company uses a custom-built ERP written in and still maintained with Delphi 7. America tends to be on the cutting edge of software development, quick to adopt new technologies, and that's just not Delphi. I've got 1 Delphi job listed within 100 miles of my home, and that's just a contract job to document old Delphi code - "Some Delphi experience. Does not have to be current or an expert in Delphi. No coding, only writing."

Hm, a students of ours just today doub out TASM32.exe from Delphi!
Yuck! He got stuck then, because EMBT no longer delivers TLINK.exe with it.

And no, I'm not kjidding! But the aims of the student are a bit

You know very well that you have ab-so-lute-ly no data -- none
whatsoever -- to conclude that from, so you are merely talking
