I have learned programming on .NET. It's been 4 years since I have started (serious) programming, I gained experience in VBA, JavaScript but mainly C#. I have spent a lot of time trying to grasp the good coding practices, object orientation etc.

Now finally I have a job. The job is fixing/upgrading an ERP on a daily basis. Creating reports and maybe sometimes new stuff. I have absolutely no experience in Delphi, and no motivation to learn it especially when people are moving to .NEt from Delphi not in the reverse direction sa my manager expects :)

The question is that are there any tools that I write C# code and compile into this object pascal or whatever it is. Thanks in advance.

If you can program, you can program in Delphi. It shares most common modern programming paradigms with languages like C#. If you can't quickly make the transition from C# to Delphi you need to invest some time learning general programming concepts.

If you're going to attempt to maintain a large system written in one language (any language, doesn't have to be Delphi) while refusing to understand the language the application is written in you are unlikely to be successful. Similarly, if you make a habit of posting about the crappy architecture of a system you've just been hired to support, and the technical incompetence of your manager, you're unlikely to hold onto any job for a long time. That's true even if the architecture is genuinely crappy and your manager is a genuine idiot.

Frankly, I can't understand how you got hired to maintain a large Delphi system without knowledge of Delphi, or why you chose to take the job when there must be many more jobs available that require C#

what's your interest
