I'm back from another excellent Xojo Developer's Conference. The 2016 edition was held in Houston, Texas, and was a terrific blend of technology, fun, and wonderful people. I can't wait for the next one.
In This Issue
I thought our last issue was huge, but this one tips the scales at a whopping 112 pages. And that's
afterI omitted my Beginner's Cornercolumn for this issue.
Often our XDC issue is a little light "hard" content (i.e. code), since most of the magazine is reporting on the conference. But this time we've got some terrific technical articles in addition to lighter fare.
Christian Schmitz tests out the Xojo compiler's new optimization settings, exploring the generated assembly language for efficiency.
As promised, Mark Strickland reports on his attempt to use Xojo to cook a steak.
And J.C. Cruz finished development of his Health Disorder tracking app.
Then there's the conference. If you missed the announcements and Xojo roadmap, I've got you covered. I've also written about my experience. As usual I try to paint you a picture of what it was like, but I also like share tips and information I learned in the various sessions, so hopefully it'll be educational, too.
And if you just want to be entertained, I've put in nearly
50photographs, so enjoy!
