Full text of article...
We don't usually do issue themes, but this one is definitely optimization. We've got two articles on how to make your code faster.
Formatted Text Control (FTC) creator Brendan Murphy contributes a speedup tip for parsing routines, and I wrote an article on my failed attempts to make a program perform better. (Spoiler: I did eventually get it to work, so you can learn both from my mistakes and my successes.)
Not exactly optimization, but certain related in terms of code performance, JC Cruz explains how to work with threads. Threads are complicated, but important to understand for modern programming, so this one is a must-read.
It's been a while since we've featured an interview. I'm delighted to introduce you to a fellow Real Studio user, Glen Buecker, who took his school's complicated application process and turned it into an online app with Real Studio Web Edition. The result saves tons of paper, time, and sanity for both teachers and applicants.
(By the way, if you'd like me to do more interviews, please send me your suggestions and nominations for interview subjects. I'm always looking for interesting projects and people associated with Real Studio. Feel free to nominate yourself if you've done something unusual!)
Finally, in our columns we cover the new features of Real Studio 2011r2, object-relational mapping, Bob writes about how you can be a Real Studio superhero, and I show you how to create two-way dictionaries. Enjoy!
