Excerpt of article text...

Magical snowfalls, arctic conditions, sleigh bells, log cabins and open fires—sadly we had none of these, but what we did have was a wonderful MBS Xojo Conference in London at the end of November.

For the second time since March 2012, my wife Trisha and I co-hosted with Christian Schmitz from Monkeybread software, a conference in our home town of Wimbledon, famous for tennis, pantomime, windmills, wombles, and hosting MBS Xojo conferences.

The MBS Xojo Conference was held on Friday, November 27th at the Antoinette Hotel in the Trafalgar Suite, named after the famous battle fought by local resident Lord Nelson.

This year, we were very honoured to have Bob and Carol Keeney from Bkeeney Software attend from Kansas, USA (see Figure 1). Bob and Carol joined us the day before, on Thanksgiving day, for our annual pilgrimage to Jimmy's restaurant across the road, to sample the large variety of foods from around the world.

The conference started at 8 a.m. on a bright and sunny day with coffee and biscuits whilst everyone was watching Chris Carter, our favourite Santa Claus-look-alike setting up his train set.

This year, we had our regular attendees, but also some new faces from seven different countries including Ojvind Sogaard Andersen, James Brock, Gary Delal, John Dear, Metod Ganter, Simon Hull, Tomas Jakobs, Jakob Krabbe, Chris McHugh, Sean Moran, Anthony Newson, Manuel Romei, Stefano Romei, and Yosaf Shah (see Figure 2).
