True, there is less, but we (our company) still manages to find and 
employ those with suitable Object Pascal skills. We have around 50 
developers in our office, and then some in LA (USA) and some in Poland.

It seems there is still pretty good interest in Object Pascal in Brazil. 
We have a 21 year old that just got hired, and he studied Object Pascal 
in Brazil. I found such a "young age Object Pascal developer" rather 
surprising, because everybody else I've met that does Delphi/Object 
Pascal coding has been much older. The 90's generation that grew up. :)

We have a recruitment agent that sends any Object Pascal developer he 
finds to us - if we are actively looking or not. If they are skilled, we 
find a role for them - and that keeps our dev teams topped up.

Yeah, if the FPC Foundation could help with marketing the language and 
FPC (and Lazarus), that would be a great step in the right direction.
