What can we expect in 2012? I'm sure there will be many surprises, but here are a few things I think are likely:
There's the Real World conference coming in May, back from a long hiatus. It's in Orlando, Florida this year, which is different. I sure hope many of you will be attending.
I'm looking forward to exploring the benefits of Cocoa now that Real Software is finalizing Cocoa compiling.
Other improvements to Real Studio, such as an improved user interface.
Maybe Apple will release an iPhone 5 and an iPad 3?
Hopefully the Mayan calendar is wrong and 2012 is not the end of the world!
In This Issue
We have Tam Hanna's experiences with outsourcing, Bob Keeney's coverage of the recent Real Studio conference in Germany, and Jens Bendig has a fascinating -- and important -- look at the use of global variables in Real Studio, including a really cool solution. I've written more of a philosophical article on the dangers of not being confident in your own abilities and writing poor code just to get something working.
In our columns, I explore Real Studio 2011r4's new transparency features, Bob looks at the year gone by, and Paul brings us the latest on databases and shows how to create a Web API. Enjoy!
