As I put the finishing touches on this March/April issue, it hits me: we're already into March! The month rings a bell because that's when the Xojo Developer's Conference (XDC) is on my calendar. Wow, does the time go by fast!

This year's conference promises to be especially awesome. It's in a first-time location (Las Vegas) and we're expecting big announcements on technology such as iOS support. I'm stoked and can't wait. I sure hope to see many of you there!

Sadly, if you haven't bought your ticket, it's sold out. But don't worry: I'm planning full coverage in the next xDev for those who couldn't make it.

In This Issue

If you depend on QuickTime and are confused by Apple's moves to drop support, you'll want to read Christian Schmitz's article on AVFoundation (QT's replacement). He's also contributed a short tutorial on using Xojo's email classes.

Trisha Duke is back with another "smart" article, this time revealing her custom reporting solution, and I've written a piece on why an efficient app is more than just code optimization.

Markus Winter chips in with a bit about his visit to New Zealand, where he found friendly Xojo developers. He's also debuting a new column -- We Are Xojo -- where he profiles the "regular" Xojo developer. It's a terrific addition to the magazine!

Plus we cover OOP structure, database design, build automation, Regex versus Xojo code, and much more. Enjoy!
