Long-time C++ Champion Joins ISOCPP to Help Language and Community Address Modern Programming Challenges

SAN FRANCISCO – April 16, 2013 – Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, today announced it is a sponsor of the Standard C++ Foundation (isocpp.org). This action underscores Embarcadero's commitment to advancing the C++ programming language and its community, as well as the evolution of C++ for modern programming challenges, such as software development for multiple devices including Windows PCs, tablets and Macs.

The Standard C++ Foundation is an organization whose mission is to support the C++ software developer community and promote the understanding and use of modern Standard C++ on all compilers and platforms, as stated on the Foundation's website. In particular, two near-term goals of that mission are:

  • To promote dissemination of correct and up-to-date information about modern C++.
  • To promote greater availability of high-quality C++ libraries, including both standard libraries (by reducing barriers to submitting and adopting libraries in Standard C++ itself) and community libraries (by having an organized and ideally tool-supported way for C++ developers to discover and use libraries).

"We are happy to welcome Embarcadero as a member of the Standard C++ Foundation," said Herb Sutter of Microsoft, chairman and president of the Standard C++ Foundation. "As C++ interest and standardization continues to accelerate in the current resurgence, we're excited to continue seeing more new and modern C++ programming tools and compilers becoming available from our members and across the industry."

Embarcadero is a long-time champion of the C++ programming language and its community. In 1990, a team of developers at Embarcadero (then part of Borland) released the company's first Turbo C++ 1.0 compiler. Now, after over 20 years and 26 product releases later, Embarcadero is supporting C++ developers and helping them solve modern programming challenges with C++Builder® for multi-device app development.

"We are proud to continue our longstanding support of the C++ community and the great work being done by the Standard C++ Foundation," said Michael Swindell, Embarcadero senior vice president of products. "C++ is already the most widely used language for operating systems, databases, and embedded devices. With the worldwide proliferation of smart phones, tablets, and other personal computers, the opportunities for C++ are endless."

Embarcadero supports the C++ programming language as a key solution for addressing the Enterprise's need to create apps for multiple devices and platforms. For more information, visit http://www.embarcadero.com/products/cbuilder.
