|Getting from Visual Basic to Native Mac OS X|
Do you want to use your Microsoft Visual Basic programming skills to create applications for Mac OS X? Windows continues to be the dominant platform in the workplace but Mac OS X is growing fast. Forrester says that almost half of the enterprises are issuing Macs to employees – and they plan a 52% increase in the number of Macs they issue in 2012.
But how can you reach this growing Mac OS X market if you're a Visual Basic software developer?
Delphi XE3, now with FireMonkey, has been called "simply revolutionary" with its ability to create HD/3D rich business applications and native Windows and Mac OS X applications using a single codebase. Delphi XE2 is a natural fit for Visual Basic developers who appreciate a visual component based Rapid Application Development environment but want to take advantage of FireMonkey's ability to create rich native Windows and Mac OS X applications.
Download a FREE trial of Delphi XE3 with FireMonkey to see what the excitement is all about!
