If you use Microsoft SQL Server and need database development tools, there is an extra special bundle offer on DB PowerStudio for Microsoft SQL Server. See the section on DB PowerStudio below.

    Introducing Delphi Developer Certification and Delphi Master Developer Certification

Certification exams are now available for Delphi developers. Embarcadero’s Delphi Certification Program offers two levels: Delphi Certified Developer and Delphi Certified Master Developer.

“This certification program is designed to identify Delphi experts around the world. The two distinct levels of Delphi certification test general and advanced programming skills and knowledge,” said David Intersimone, chief evangelist, Embarcadero Technologies. “Earning certification can help Delphi programmers better convey their skill set to employers, and employers can use this certification as one of the criteria to match the level of developer they need. As the Delphi Certification Program gains popularity, we believe it will raise the standards for all Delphi programmers.”
