It’s always a good time to learn something new! And maybe you have some free time on your hands now? We know our screen time is up to 23 hours and 47 minutes a day so let’s put that inevitable extra screen time to good use and learn a new skill – programming. If you are going to add programming to your skillset, it’s logical to begin with a language that makes it simple to learn the basics of programming. Let me show you a learning path you can follow over 14 days that is aimed at giving you a confident and capable to start to programming. After 14 days, you will have the basic skills to begin creating your own apps. And using Xojo, with the check of a box, you can build those apps for Mac, Windows and Linux and after that, use your new skills to develop web, iOS and Raspberry Pi apps!
This tutorial will show you how to deploy your SQLite based projects so they behave right on Desktop, Web and iOS, copying the database file to the right place on every target.
Today we are pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Xojo Design Awards.

At Xojo we did the hard work of creating a framework with an API that manages the nuances, intricacies, and subtle yet important differences between 7 different platforms (macOS, Windows, Linux, web, Raspberry Pi, iOS and soon, Android) so you can focus on what makes your application unique. We have been doing it for over 20 years.
