Full text of article...

When it was announced last fall Real World seemed very far away, but it's already May 2012 and nearly time to depart! Now that it's more concrete, I'm starting to get excited. Of course I plan to do an in-depth report on the conference for those of you who can't make it, so watch for that in our July issue.

In This Issue

We've got a wide variety of topics in this issue! Our cover story is on the intriguing project management strategy of extreme programming. Tam Hanna explains what XP is and whether or not it might be suitable for your company.

Mattias Sandström writes about how to use Google Authenticator for dynamic passwords that only last a few minutes. We've got a report from London by Richard and Trisha Duke about the recent Real Studio conference held there, and JC Cruz explains how to solve the problem of multiple threads wanting to share the same resources. For the database gurus, Craig Boyd covers a tool most of us have but don't use, materialized views. What are they and should you use them?

In our columns, Paul Lefebvre launches his new "Software Made Real" column, focusing on the hardness of simplicity. (Note: the database column will return soon.) In his Web Edition column Paul uncovers the mysteries of cookies. Bob Keeney writes about what do to when projects go bad and in Beginner's Corner, I demonstrate how to add a user interface to RBScripts.
