Turbo Delphi was an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), created by CodeGear, which was targeted towards student, amateur, individual professionals, and hobbyist programmers. It used the Delphi programming language, which is a dialect of Pascal.

Turbo Delphi was announced on August 8, 2006. It became available for download on September 5, 2006.

There were two versions of Turbo Delphi, one which generates native Win32 applications (Turbo Delphi for Windows), and one that generated bytecode for the Microsoft .NET CLR. Each version came in two editions, a free Explorer edition and a Professional edition. The Professional edition was a commercial product available for purchase from Borland/Embarcadero, and it allowed extension and customization of the IDE which was not available in the Explorer edition.

It was most recently distributed by the CodeGear division of Embarcadero Technologies, which was purchased from Borland in 2008. [1] In October 2009, Embarcadero discontinued support of Turbo Delphi, along with the other Turbo products including Turbo C++. The product is not available for download any longer,[2] and it is not possible to receive a registration key from Embarcadero which was required to use the product. The latest release of Turbo Delphi was 2006, and it was based upon Embarcadero's product Delphi 2006.
