C++ development has come a long way since Borland first introduced Turbo C++ in 1990. Over the years, Turbo C++ evolved into Borland C++ and then C++Builder with new language and development environment innovations like visual development to greatly increase developer productivity. The legacy of Turbo C++ lives on today in Embarcadero® C++Builder®.
