The last few weeks of 2022 were wild. We finished year 20 of xDev Magazine. We had the World Cup in November (but it was great). Ice last week postponed my Christmas party. The U.S. stock market tanked. And I somehow got an xDev completed.

Write for xDev

As we head into our 21st year of publication, xDev is looking for fresh voices. We're especially interested in writers who can cover Android, iOS, and other topics we may have neglected. Have an idea? Send Marc an email (publisher@xdevmag.com)!

Preorder xDev Archive 20

We're now taking pre-orders for the new xDev Archive 20—all the 2022 issues of xDev in one printed book. Current subscribers can save 50% on their pre-order! See http://xdevmag.com/bookpreorder-subscriber.shtml for more.

In This Issue

Dana writes about her London meetup, which is a preview of this spring's XDC there. Can't wait for that!

With all the fuss over ChatGPT, I decided to port the original AI chatbot, Eliza, to Xojo. That turned out to be an adventure.

Stefanie writes about the MBS plugins in 2022, and Eugene Dakin expands his steganography series to encode text, per a reader's request.

In our columns we cover Xojo 2022R4, MBS MongoDB, PDF Tables, MS SQL, and more. Enjoy!
