By now I should be on my way to Berlin, Germany, for the MBS Xojo Conference. It'll be great to meet European Xojo developers who haven't been able to come to the U.S. conferences. It's also my first time overseas since I was a teenager, so that's exciting (I'll take an extra week to travel through Europe). I'll have a full report on everything in the next issue!

Omegabundle is back!

If you're looking for a great value in Xojo add-ons, for a limited time you can get thousands of dollars of Xojo-related products for just pennies on the dollar via Omegabundle (http://www.omegabundle.net).

As usual, xDev Magazine is a part of the bundle (current subscribers can get their subscriptions extended), but we're also including a terrific collection of books and articles from xDev Library. See the News section for more details.

In This Issue

This time I've created something unusual and I hope useful: the ultimate Xojo Beginner's Guide. I've never seen anything quite like this. It's a mix of a broad overview of Xojo with some closeup details explained—things that typically confuse beginners, such as how to create global variables.

If there's interest, I could see this expanding this and publishing it as a mini-book, perhaps as a freebie for subscribers. Let me know if you'd like that!

In our other features, Sam Rowlands shares a plan for serialization, JC Cruz begins a series on sharing data, and Mark Strickland covers his experience with NGINX for Xojo web apps. Finally, for a change of pace, I have a little opinion piece I wrote on "abandonware."

In our columns, Paul covers the latest Xojo release, Scott writes about InnoSetup, and Craig covers backup best practices. (Since my Beginner's Guide is so long, I've omitted my Beginner's Corner column for this issue). Enjoy!
