Excerpt of article text...

If you think going to the same programming conference year after year would get repetitive and boring, you'd be wrong. Somehow it just gets better and better.

Sure, there's a lot of the same: security-conscious airports and cramped airplanes, hotel rooms that look nice but aren't home, strange food, familiar and unfamiliar faces, and ubiquitous presentations you've seen a half dozen times already.

But every Real World—now XDC (Xojo Developer's Conference)—has its own flavor. Last year was different as the conference was returning from a multi-year hiatus and was the first not held in Austin, Texas.

This year we were back in Orlando again (see Figure 1), but there was little "been there, done that" feel. I sensed an atmosphere of excitement and anticipation. The change of Real Studio to Xojo embodies that feeling: everyone is hopeful and looking forward to the changes Xojo brings.
