"We're delighted to be a part of Ecma International -- to play a more active role in furthering the evolution of the .NET platform and strengthening our support for C# development," said Patrick Kerpan, chief technology officer at Borland. "Because Borland is a platform-neutral vendor, we're in an ideal position to lend objective insight into the formation of standards. This is just the latest example of our continuing commitment to helping ensure that these standards meet the needs of developers."
"I am very pleased that Borland has joined the Association," said Jan van den Beld, secretary general of Ecma International. "Getting broadly applied, high-quality standards require active participation of stakeholders in a technology -- i.e. the .NET platform -- and its building blocks. Borland's critical and constructive support is highly appreciated."
