November 2023 – xDev Magazine is pleased to announce the release of our newest issue, now available in PDF and print formats!

The November/December 2023 (21.6) issue features articles on making a “Find the Differences” game, multi-column PDFs, design patterns, converting analog to digital voltage in Raspberry Pi, designing gauges, and more.

This latest issue of the magazine includes the following feature articles:

Multi-column PDFs by Stefanie Juchmes
While it’s fairly easy to create a single-column PDF layout, what happens if you want to do something more sophisticated and lay out text in columns? Don’t worry – Stefanie has you covered.

Design Patterns Part 1 by Marc Zeedar
Design patterns are a great way to enforce object-oriented programming and make code easier to understand and modify. But if you aren’t familiar with them, they can seem complex and intimidating. This intro lesson is the first in a new series.

Rasp Pi Electronic Fun Part 4 by Eugene Dakin
Conversion of analog voltage to digital voltage is missing in Raspberry Pi. Using a MCP3008 chip and the SPI communication protocol, this article shows how to read a voltage and display the numeric value in a listbox.

Find the Differences by Marc Zeedar
A “Find the Difference” game can be a fun mental exercise in observation. Marc uses Xojo to build an editor that lets you create these games, as well as a standalone player that can be distributed to gamers.

Plus: Topics such as Xojo 2023R3, designing gauges, sets and zip files, stored procedures, and more!

This new issue can be purchased and downloaded instantly via GumRoad (Issue 21.6 ("Differences")) for just $10.
