It's been a rather quiet summer... the calm before the storm? I am thinking big things will happen before the end of the year. I just have no idea what!

In This Issue

It's another super-long issue with some unusual articles. We begin with our cover story: Steve Pardoe reports on a Xojo solution he concocted whereby he can easily set up web-based business applications for clients without much coding. It's a terrific example of ingenuity using a variety of tools with Xojo at the core.

Next, Markus Winter shows how to handle the code and interface for often-used calculations, such as temperature conversions.

Eugene Dakin is back with more cryptography, this time exploring the Polyalphabetic Substitution Cipher.

And though it's tongue-in-cheek, I explain how to write the world's worst app. Just don't follow any of my suggestions and you'll do great!

Finally, we have an epic essay from Markus on his radical idea on how Xojo might evolve in the future. I'm not sure I buy his "sky is falling" theory, but it's an intriguing solution that is worth discussing.

In our other columns, we cover SQLite, Xojo's latest releases, embedding Javascripts, machine unlearning, Apple's controversial CSAM scanning, Windows 365, and more. Enjoy!
