After two years of cancelations and reschedulings, the Xojo Developer's Conference is officially off. It's frustrating and disappointing, but at the same time almost a relief, as international travel was sounding even more complicated than usual. This pandemic isn't going away, but here's hoping it becomes more predictable. It's very hard to plan anything these days, even dinner out.

Our 20th Year!

In case you haven't noticed, this issue marks xDev's 20th year of publication. That's just mind-blowing. A lot has changed in the world since 2002. Back then:

  • there was no iPhone, Facebook, Uber, or Airbnb

  • there were under 600M internet users worldwide and only 3M websites

  • Apple stock cost $0.28 ($177 today)

Now I feel old!

In This Issue

If you think finding bugs is hard, Christian Schmitz has some terrific tips for you. His colleague, Stefanie Juchmes, shows how to create a "heatmap" diagram with the ChartDirector plugin. Eugene explains the Feistel cipher, while I take a look at Apple's new MacBook Pros with the new M1 Pro and M1 Max chips.

In our columns, we cover Xojo's latest release, Android support, SQL injections, sending email with Xojo and MBS, transparent PDFs, and much more. Enjo
