Borland Software announced Nov. 14 the formation of CodeGear, a company with the goal of advancing the Borland integrated development environment tools. The CodeGear development team says the new company retains the technology’s roots.
“This is really what we were looking for,” said Michael Swindell, vice president of product strategy at CodeGear, based in Scotts Valley, Calif. “We wanted to be a separate company, an independent unit to focus on our strengths in [Windows] Vista and Eclipse, but also in PHP, Ruby and other technologies.”
“We’ll be doing some things in the new development areas such as AJAX, Python, Ruby, PHP and other things,” Smith said
It is impressive how much Eclipse is dominating out there too. JBuilder 2007 will be on Eclipse. Maybe we will go back to my roots of having every application running in Emacs, but this time inside Eclipse.
I am glad they are doing this. They have traditionally been great with technology, but poor with marketing. Hopefully the new entity gets it right, and adds great new Ajax tools to the mix. We all know that we need it.
