Full text of article...

Where things REALbasic are concerned, the event of the year is always the annual REAL World conference in Austin, Texas. I come back refreshed and revived and ready for another year of wrapping my head around programming conundrums.

This year was no exception. REAL World just keeps getting better and better; I just don't know how I can bear to wait until 2007 for another conference!

You'll find my detailed RW2006 report -- as always, with plenty of photographs -- beginning on page 16.

New European Distribution

Being located in the United States has always made distribution of RBD in Europe and overseas a challenge; I'm pleased to announce that I've recently entered an agreement with Nova International (one of the best-appreciated former REAlbasic distributors) to distribute REALbasic Developer in Europe.

We're still working on setting everything up and we will announce the specific details in the future, but this is an exciting opportunity to expand our international focus. Stay tuned!

In This Issue

In addition to comprehensive coverage of REAL World 2006, we've got another dose of mathematics from JC Cruz with his article on "Planetary Motion," and former REAL Software engineer (How weird it seems to say that!) Joe Strout explains "refactoring" for us mere mortals.

With this issue, I'm pleased to announce the return of our Algorithms column. Charles Yeomans has volunteered (okay, I did twist his arm a bit) to take over this important topic. Be sure to let him know what you think!
