We encourage all users of Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio to complete the surveys. The surveys are conducted by Embarcadero Product Management for Delphi and C++Builder. The responses are extremely important to us and help to shape the vision and future of the product.
The surveys are long but again the information we gain from the answers is very valuable, so we encourage you to complete the entire survey.
Please pass this information on to anybody you think would be interested. If you'd like to help with translating either survey, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know which survey(s) you're willing to translate and which languages. We appreciate any translation help and we will add additional links to this page as translations become available.

RAD Studio 2009 empowered you, the Delphi and C++Builder developer, to deliver first class, Unicode-enabled applications to your customers. While this important development is opening new markets for your software, in some cases it may have presented a challenge for some existing applications and development techniques, especially where code has included explicit assumptions about the size of strings.
We want to aid those developers faced with the task of migrating existing applications to RAD Studio 2009 and later by compiling a list of real-world obstacles, and the techniques used to overcome then, and you can help.
How to submit your migration stories - https://edn.embarcadero.com/article/40018
We'd like to know how you're using Embarcadero developer tools like Delphi, C++Builder, Delphi Prism, 3rdRail, JBuilder and Delphi for PHP. We've set up new forms where you can submit information on products, apps and web sites that you've built using these tools. You can submit multiple products if you'd like, just one per form.
