This past summer, the Boy Scouts added a new Programming Merit Badge to their Merit Badge Series. To fulfill requirement 5, a Boy Scout has to modify or create three programs in a variety of languages and development environments. Because it is free and simple to use, Xojo is a great choice to help a Scout meet requirement 5.

Everybody is taking about multi-platform software development these days. From a desktop to a laptop to a tablet to a phone, people and companies want their software to run on whatever device they are using.
On June 13th, 2013, Google announced that they would be discontinuing support for their ChromeFrame plugin for Internet Explorer. For those of you who are not aware of it, ChromeFrame enabled older versions of IE to support the newer HTML5 protocols by running Google Chrome from within.
XDC, the Xojo Developer Conference, is less than 6 months away! The conference will take place March 26-28, 2014 at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world! Planning is in full gear – we just closed the call for speakers and will announce the final session schedule later this month. We received more submissions than we could ever present in a single conference, which is extremely exciting and surely indicative that this will be the biggest XDC yet! Over the next few weeks we at Xojo have a big challenge selecting the best sessions from these submissions, but the result will surely be a terrific XDC!
