Get started programming with our Community Editions!
Community Edition is our full-featured and free IDE to build applications for iOS, Android, Windows and macOS from a single codebase using the robust and easy-to-learn Delphi language. It's the perfect way to get started learning a new programming language or explore multi-device app development. Embarcadero's Community Edition is available for Delphi and C++Builder.
We'll use the same "calculator" sample application to demonstrate how to use Community Edition to develop an application in either C++ or Delphi. Each learning track contains five posts, and follow the same progression so you can switch back and forth if you want to see how the application is created in the other language.
