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.

#1 on the Xojo Roadmap: Android

Although Android and iOS will start off as different project types, implementing the “Mobile” prefix is an important step to complete so you will see similar controls when Android support is available.
