It's not in person, but a virtual Xojo Developer Conference is happening April 25-29, 2022! It will include a pre-recorded Keynote address and sessions by Xojo experts, plus some live events. While this won't be the same as a "real" conference, it should be interesting and I'm curious to see how it will play out. (I just hope my feeble Internet can keep up. I signed up for Elon Musk's Starlink a year ago, but it hasn't arrived yet.)

In This Issue

If you love Xojo because it lets you develop projects fast, you'll want to check out David Duke's Cryptic RADPACK, a new collection of Xojo controls and tools that lets you create apps faster than ever. David gave me a video demo over Zoom and I must say it's impressive. Check out his article where he covers just some of the hundreds of things is can do to save you time and effort.

In our other articles, Eugene finishes his fascinating series on cryptography, this time covering DES encryption. I write about conflicts between Apple's "quarantine" feature and Xojo, and I cover my experiences resurrecting a game I wrote in REALbasic over 20 years ago, and getting it running in the latest Xojo.

In our columns, we cover QR codes, desktop user interfaces, SQL triggers, debugging, and much more. Enjoy!
