Full text of article...

Though the Las Vegas Xojo Developers' Conference (XDC) was a month ago -- years in Internet time -- I'm still recovering. Partly from the flu I caught, but also from the brain download of information I got at all the sessions.

In addition to a first-time venue, there were a number of new presentations, and, of course, fascinating details on the progress of Xojo building for iOS. I cannot wait to begin covering iOS in xDev! Sadly, that will have to wait until iOS support officially ships later this year, but I'm already drooling.

In the meantime, if you missed XDC 2014, I've got extensive coverage in this issue. There's a short article on page 14 that covers the key news from the conference, while my in-depth experience starts on page 26. I tried to include useful tidbits of information from many of the sessions I attended, so it's not just a report on what I ate for lunch. (There's also lots of photos for those who don't like so many words.)

In other features, Sam Rowlands explains the mysteries of sandboxing your app for the Mac App Store, and he shows how to use Cocoa in Xojo to make a fancier print dialog.

Our columns in this issue are packed with great stuff about threading, database design, class interfaces, developer tools, Regex groups, and much more. And be sure to check out the interesting profiles of two Xojo developers in We Are Xojo.

Enjoy!
