Delphi is both an object oriented programming language (OOP) and an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Published by the Embarcadero company (formerly CodeGear and more formerly Borland), Delphi is an alternative to language such as Visual Basic offering development with both rapidity and good quality. However, nowadays most companies prefer more modern languages such as Java or C#.

It originated from the Pascal language, which then became Object Pascal (pascal with objects support). Delphi is Object Pascal running on Windows and Kylix is Object Pascal running on Linux.
