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!
