It's now 2017 and the traditional time to reflect on what we hope to accomplish in the new year.

But why bother making resolutions we'll just break? Let's just resolve to relax a little more, not be so stressed out, and take the important things like our health and our family more seriously.

In This Issue

Thankfully this issue isn't quite as big as the last one, but it's still full of an eclectic mix of good stuff.

First we have our cover story by Mattias Sandstrom, writing about a fascinating Xojo Raspberry Pi project he created for a school lab in Sweden.

In a Windows-oriented article, Eugene Dakin explains how to get Visual Basic 6 DLLs to work in Xojo, while JC Cruz covers how to work with bitmasks. It's a great refresher for those of us who aren't fluent in binary!

Finally, in a lighter vein, I interview sound editor Mark Franken, who won an Emmy for the software he wrote with Xojo. I met him at XDC and you'll find his journey fascinating.

In our columns, Paul covers Xojo 2016r4, Craig explains Master Data Management, Scott covers Profile Reader and Readability open source programs, and I write about clear interface design. Happy 2017
