    For your information: Ulrich is sick. But he recorded the session and we'll play the video.

    The hotel fixed the temperature, but currently the right lift is not working properly.

    As a speaker it is great if you can record a test run for your session. So if the camera fails or you can do a live presentation, you still can provide the video.
    Thanks @Ulrich B!

    It's amazing to see Geoff developing a Xojo app for Android live on the stage.
    A couple of examples project working also where he shows code.
    And things seems to work fine mostly.

    Really pleased to see the progress with Android, especially seeing the compiled app downloaded to a connected phone for testing purposes rather than an emulator.

    If anyone needs an attendance certificate for the conference to proof they were here, I can create one.

    After Android Overview, we now see @ReinhardBlumauer presenting software for Tip Control.

    see website: tipcontrol.com

    Cool micro controllers, cheaper than a computer, but capable of connecting sensors, buttons and logic to your controlling computer via mesh networks in Wifi or Bluetooth.

    Android Update:
    The delay was mostly due to the fact that the first two approaches did not lead to the expected success.
    The solution was not to work with the LLVM compiler for Android, but with the Kotlin compiler (which gives you an .apk).
    That is more work but it leads to a better experience
    Optimisation happens at install time, so that the code is optimised for the device it is running on.
    The result of doing it "the Google way" is that it will run on whatever google decides in the future

    The Android Framework

    • written in Kotlin with a Xojo-layer in-between
    • Abstracts you from most Android OS version differences
    • Supports Android 5 and above
    • 90%+ Android Phones

    What we've seen demonstrated:

    • Code Execution (in the Emulator and on the actual Phone)
    • Slider
    • Progressbar
    • Button
    • MessageBox (Horizontal buttons, Vertical Buttons and simple)
    • DateControl (2 versions)
    • TextField
    • TextArea
    • Dictionary
    • FolderItem
    • HTMLViewer
    • Switch
    • Label
    • Graphics (see the video linked by Christian https://youtu.be/zmU9dlmTyfs )

    What remains

    • Merge in API 2.0 language features (done)
    • Finish language support
    • First pass of the Android Framework (basic support?)
    • Second pass of the Android Framework
    • Add debugger support
    • Finish IDE Integration

    Mobile future

    • iOS Framework to API 2.)
    • Common layout - Auto Layout
    • Single Mobile project

    Not sure if Camera support will be in the first version.

    InterOps not needed to compile to Android, but it is still needed to talk to the OS

    It will be Mobile as a platform (not just android)

    The "new framework" for iOS will disappear

    There have been lots of changes since May and many more changes will come by Xojo Connect, but still no promises about when it might be released.

    @Paul B progress with Android, especially seeing the compiled app downloaded to a connected phone for testing purposes rather than an emulator.

    For developing purposes and debugging, everyone expects an emulator, the run "in device" can be done for an optional test phase. No devs must have multiple real devices with such diverse form factors, but they must be able to emulate them. But as said in the blog, that's what happens.

    The blog post never stated that Xojo can't run an Android app in the emulator.

    It can run apps in the emulator and on a real device.
    However, the debugger isn't ready yet.
