It seems like forever since the last issue. That's mostly because I've had a busy time, going to Atlanta for the RB Summit, doing tax stuff in April (ugh), and sadly, dealing with a sick kitty (Mischief's kidneys failed and he passed away in late March).
I did have a wonderful time at the conference and you can read about it in this issue's cover story. It was great to see old friends in person; talking is far better for getting to know someone than email.
In This Issue
We've got a packed issue of nearly 90 pages this time! In addition to my in-depth report on the Atlanta Summit -- which, by the way, includes some hints at the future of Real Studio -- we've got articles on OOP coding practices, handling preferences, and GUI design.
Tam Hanna is back to present us with his take on GUI design. JC Cruz has the answers if you've wondered about the best way to store preferences for your application. And Jens Bendig returns with a fascinating look at "The Meaning Gradient." It's a tricky concept to grasp, but I encourage you to read the article as it will add insight into how you design your software. It will also make debugging your programs a lot easier.
In our columns, I continue my focus on printing in Beginner's Corner, while Bob writes about the importance of contracts and Paul writes about serving SQL and the difference between a session and an app in a Web app. Enjoy!
