March 2018 – xDev Magazine is pleased to announce that the new March/April 2018 (16.2) issue, featuring a Raspberry Pi how-to, scripting stock prices, making PDFs, and more, is now available in PDF and print formats.
xDev Magazine is the only publication in the world exclusively devoted to guiding developers in how to use the free Xojo multi-platform rapid application development environment, from Xojo, Inc.
This latest issue of the magazine includes the following feature articles:
Motor Control by Eugene Dakin
Have you ever wanted to control a motor with a Raspberry Pi? In this tutorial, Eugene shows you how to do it.
Making PDFs by Marc Zeedar
Converting documents from one format to another is complicated. Why not let a web service handle the dirty details for you? It’s cross-platform and your users won’t care how you do it. Convert from Markdown or HTML to PDF and other formats.
Scripting Stock Prices with Xojo by Marc Zeedar
Just getting stock prices is only the first step – what do you do with those once you’ve got them? How about a scripting language that lets you work with that information to create reports and analysis? Check out Marc’s StockScripter app.
A Predicate For Data, Part 1 by JC Cruz
Jose starts a new series explaining about data predicates – what they are and how to incorporate them in your own projects.
Plus: Xojo community, PITR, Xojo encrypting, a custom code formatting script update, and more!
