As 2018 finishes, things are really wild and crazy. The stock market's in a swoon and it's mostly due to the unknowns of the future: is the economy getting better or worse? No one seems to know.

Here at xDev, we're chugging along as we begin our 17th year of publication. Wow. That gives me the chills just writing that. Where did the time go?

I'm still settling into my new house; it's going to be a while before I'm fully unpacked and organized, but once I am, I plan to begin on several new projects that I hope will bear fruit in 2019.

In This Issue

Our cover story is an article on making successful iOS apps, based on Je?re?mie Leroy's XDC presentation. It's more about marketing and App Store management than coding, but those are critical things in the app market.

We've also got a piece from another new author, Tim Dietrich, who leverages his Aloe project to create an API to web-generate bar codes.

And, of course, JC Cruz continues his series on building a data-list controller.

In other articles, I write about error messages and we have an update on a recent meetup of Xojo developers in the UK.

In addition to some regular columns, I've launched a new one I've been thinking about for a while. I call it Best of the Web. It features excerpts and links to programming-related articles I've read. While not strictly Xojo-oriented, it's great for broadening your horizons and getting the perspective of other developers. I hope you find it useful. Enjo
