Full text of article...

It's summer, and honestly, I'd rather be outside enjoying the sun and warm weather (rare here in rain-filled Oregon) than inside programming or writing about Xojo. But duty calls. It's already time for another issue of xDev!

Call for Authors

Special thanks to Kem Tekinay for writing the RegEx column for the past couple of years. He's decided he's exhausted the topic, so it won't be appearing in each issue any more.

In related news, xDev is looking for new columnists for iOS, Web apps, Windows, and other topics. Please contact me if you're interested!

In This Issue

Apple just had their annual developers conference with lots of new operating system news. Sam Rowlands breaks down what was said and what OSX "El Capitan" means for Xojo developers.

Sam also got a new MacBook—one of the super-thin, super-light ones with only one USB-C port—and he wrote a little article about it and how well it works for the Xojo developer.

JC Cruz is back with more on his ongoing health journal project, this time covering charting health information.

Finally, Markus Winter chips in with a short piece on overflow errors.

In our columns, we've got a bunch of new tips, coverage of database design tools, a guide to making programming decisions, and much more. Enjoy!
