Excerpt of article text...

For the third time in five years (the last being 2012 and 2015), my wife Trisha and I co-hosted a conference with Christian Schmitz from MonkeyBread software in our home town of Wimbledon, famous for tennis, pantomime, windmills, wombles, the World's most famous postcode SW19, the home of the Pope, and, most importantly, hosting wonderful MBS conferences.

The MBS Conference was held on Friday, November 10th at the Antoinette Hotel (see Figure 1) in the Trafalgar Suite, named after the famous battle fought by local resident Lord Nelson.

This year, we were very honored to have Marc Zeedar, publisher of the excellent xDev magazine which you are reading now. Marc joined us the day before (when Christian had a training session), and for our annual pilgrimage to Jimmy's restaurant (see Figure 2) across the road from the conference hotel, to sample the large variety of foods from around the World. Read his "A Xojo Adventure in London" sidebar for more on his England trip.

The conference started at 9 a.m. on a bright and sunny day with coffee and biscuits.

This year, we had our regular attendees including Bill Kearney, David Cox, and Chris Carter (see Figure 4-5). It was great to see some new faces, as well, such as Sivarasa Visakan from Malaysia (the same country that my wife Trisha comes from), Paula Roberts from Hirumed Limited, and Stephen Marshall from Seiko UK Limited.

Christian (see Figure 6) opened the conference with introductions and outlined the schedule for the day. He then gave a keynote speech about new features in MBS Plugins and how his plugins need to be updated to work with the 64-bit Xojo IDE. Christian also discussed the BigNumberMBS class, Touchbar, new plugins for Raspberry PI, Touch ID for Mac, DynaPDF, Linux, Windows, SQL, Curl, Cocoa Controls, and MBS Xojo Network Kit 1.0.
