Suddenly, it has been 25 years

On this day 25 years ago I wandered into the local Chase Bank here in Austin, Texas to open a checking account for my latest venture. At that time I was planning to write custom software applications for various businesses that were interested in hiring me to do so. Not long after that, one of the developers who worked for one of my customers asked if I’d be interested in hiring him. Jason and I still work together to this day. What you now know as Xojo came along about 18 months later. As we prepared v1.0 to ship, we wound down the custom software development part of the business. We’ve been a development tools company ever since.

Passport to XDC

We’re sure you have April 21-23, 2021 marked in your calendar for the first Xojo Developer Conference in London! With registrations nearly at 50% capacity, we can tell that a lot of you are as excited as we are! Of course, for many of us, it’s hard to imagine that the state of the world will be such that we can travel internationally in just 8 months time. As I have mentioned in several of the Xojo Hangouts recently, I am very hopeful that things will get better soon and that we can gather safely to have an amazing conference. But anything is possible at this point.

Why I am excited about XOJO.CONNECT … and why you should be too!

Geoff used an interesting metaphor in a conversation recently. He said, “Since we have been working on so many multi-year projects, 2019 had a bit of a drought of big new features, but in 2020 we are predicting rain … lots of rain.” This really got me thinking about how different XOJO.CONNECT 2020 will be from the past few Xojo Developer Conferences.

The Xojo Developer Conference just sold out, here’s how you can still join in…

Last week the 2018 Xojo Developer Conference sold out! We are very excited about the enthusiasm for this event, and for it being held in Denver. We received the most early registrations we have ever had for XDC, the final list includes attendees traveling from 12 countries. Registration for this year is higher than that of 2015 and 2016, and there is already a growing waiting list! You can be added to the waiting list here.

Even if you aren’t able to join us in Denver for XDC this year, there are still some ways you can stay in touch with attendees, hear major Xojo announcements and leverage the content from the conference.
