By the time you read this, the go-to destination for Xojo developers—XDC 2016—will be just a month away! Where did the summer go? I want it back!

There's never enough time for everything we want to do, but I sure hope you've made time for XDC (http://www.xojo.com/xdc/). It's unquestionably the best event for Xojo developers and worth every penny. I can't wait to see you there.

In This Issue

If you're reading this in digital form you may not notice that this issue is thicker than usual, but it hits out at 104 pages, our biggest ever. I kick things off with an article inspired by a reader who asked me a "simple" question about how to let users of his app set their own keyboard shortcuts. It turns out to be more complicated than I thought. I hope you find my experiment useful.

The irrepressible Sam Rowlands is back with an article on supporting gestures in your Xojo Mac programs, and he also shows how to use Tabbed Windows on the forthcoming MacOS Sierra (the next version of Apple's OS, now in beta).

Markus Winter returns with more of his "Better Examples" series, and J.C. Cruz continues development of his Health Disorder tracking app.

Finally, the brave Mark Strickland outlines his plans to literally cook with Xojo. He'll be back next issue to report on his success—or failure.

In our columns, Craig explores Hadoop, Scott looks at REST Classes, Paul talks about Xojo's latest iOS features, and I write about JSON. Enjoy!
