Já programei muito em Delphi (mais do que devia), mas a sequencia de enventos dos últimos meses, não é muito animadora.
Esta última empresa (IDERA) que comprou / herdou o Delphi, está a fazer uma limpeza de cima abaixo, a começar pelos mais importantes.
Sem os programadores "chave", fico a perguntar-me porque tantos enventos nas últimas semanas !?
Será apenas para realizar $$$, vender  o que tinham em "inventário" e depois temos pena...

Meu Deus, o que a IDERA vai fazer com o Delphi, não acredito!
Todos sabem que recentemente a Embarcadero foi comprada pela IDERA, quando a notícia veio a público um misto de incerteza e esperança pairou no ar. Quem está há mais de 10 anos com o Delphi sentiu no peito o mesmo sentimento quando a Inspire surgiu, depois Code Gear e por fim Embarcadero. Pois bem, agora estamos nas mãos da IDERA, e a pergunta que fazemos (me fizeram muito nos últimos meses) é: Estamos em boas mãos?

Delphi Chief Scientist Allen Bauer Has Left Embarcadero/Idera
A New Adventure
It is with sadness and excitement that as of yesterday, February 19th, 2016, I'm no longer an employee at Embarcadero/Idera. I will be starting a new position at Google (Alphabet) on Monday, February 22nd. This caps off a run of 24 years, 1 month, and 13 days at Borland/CodeGear/Embarcadero/Idera. I remember arriving at 1700 Green Hills Dr. on the morning of January 6th, 1992, naive, nervous, excited, and just in awe that they picked me to join the Turbo Pascal team.
I'm saddened by leaving behind a successful product, Delphi (and RAD Studio), I helped to build. I'm grateful to the customers who purchased the product throughout the years, for without them, none of this would ultimately be possible. As to the future of RAD Studio, I cannot say with any certainty. I'm also excited for the adventure that awaits me ahead.
I will likely remain around the Delphi/C++Builder community for a while and lend what little assistance I can. At least until my new position at Google begins to absorb more of my time and energy. Documenting and chronicling my personal projects will still happen as time allows. My list of projects still remains. I may even still talk about Delphi at times.
As for the burning question I'm sure many of my readers are asking right now, "Was this a voluntary move?". The simplest answer is yes and no. The timing and circumstances around my departure are my own. It was a choice I made. However, that does not mean that had I remained with the company, the voluntary aspect would have remained.
In some ways, I feel the same as I did when I first moved out of my parent's home and was out on my own. It's a little scary, but also exciting and exhilarating at the same time. While nobody is what they do, there is a lot of who they are in what they do. So, in many ways, I still see a lot of myself in Delphi. I'm sure all the others who have contributed over the years can say the same thing.
In my final email to my friends and colleagues, I left them with this piece of wisdom:
"You can always do more than you think you can, love/care more than you can imagine, and learn more than you can conceive"

Embarcadero closing down their Spanish office
Extracted from the comment, the most valuable info comes from Allen Bauer himself:
Allen Bauer
 The Spain office had taken on most of the IDE, Delphi RTL, GetIT, Installer, some DB, Bluetooth components, IoT, QA, and other miscellaneous tasks. They were by-far the largest single group working on RAD Studio. They were all a wonderful, dedicated, excited group of folks. They were eager to learn and truly enjoyed their jobs. I am deeply saddened by this development.
 Not unexpected given what I know about the new owners', ahem, decided lack of understanding how a dev-tool should be developed and managed... In fact, how software in general should be developed.
Gosh... I wonder why I left...

Allen Bauer
 I've been with Delphi since the before the beginning and saw it all from the inside. In all the various transitions and changes, there was at least some kind of transition plan or some transfer of knowledge put into place. Right or wrong, those in charge at least recognized that a very key and core group should be retained in order to be assured of some modicum of success.
 In this instance, however, that has not happened. It, apparently, is believed that developers are somehow able to, from merely being handed the source code, discern 21+ years of history, design, product philosophy, and even past mistakes. Just spool up a new team and spit out a product a few weeks later.
 When I met with folks after the acquisition and was asked, "what do you do?" and "we don't know if there will be a place for you within 6 months"... I quickly got the idea that I was dealing with some real bright bulbs here. Thus I began my own "exit strategy"...
 As sad as I am about what is happening to the product I dedicated 24+ years of my life to, I'm also very happy to continue my career at Google.
