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.

You might be assuming you absolutely must upgrade to API 2.0 right now, but that’s not the case. We have designed it so that you have tremendous flexibility in terms of what and when and even if you move to API 2.0.
2019r2 has many changes related to API 2.0. Most of your projects should open and run without any changes. You can then switch code to API 2.0 when you want (or not at all — it’s up to you).
At XDC 2019, I did a session called Avoiding Troubleshooting Troubles, which was essentially about ways to take advantage of the Xojo debugger. During the…

Here are a few keyboard shortcuts for the Navigator that you may not know about.
Ever wonder how to conditionally implement newer features in your code while keeping the ability to use older versions of Xojo at the same time?…
December 3rd kicks off Computer Science Education Week 2018! Computer Science Education Week is held in early December every year in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Hopper. Alongside this is the Hour of Code promotion where schools throughout the world get students to try at least 1 hour of programming at some point during the week.
Each year for Hour of Code, I volunteer at the local Middle School to talk to the students about what it is like to be a programmer and do a little bit of programming. This year I plan to demonstrate Xojo Dojo with a Raspberry Pi and show the kids how much fun coding and Xojo programming can be.
This Thanksgiving we wish to give thanks to all of you who use Xojo. You make our work possible.
With the availability of Xojo 2018 Release 3, Xojo now supports macOS Mojave’s new dark mode. This means you can update your own apps to support dark mode and it also means that the Xojo IDE works in dark mode.
