We held a full day of training the day before the Xojo Developer Conference (where we couldn’t use the term Xojo yet) on April 23rd. We had over a dozen people at the training day where we discussed what we knew about databases. We did that for most of the day and then spent the rest of the day going over 3rd party plugins, controls, libraries, and utilities to help you get your Real Studio/Xojo apps going.
We recorded all of it and have rendered it all (except a 30 minute portion where the mic wasn’t on) and made it available for our Real Studio/Xojo subscribers (as well as attendees who got a year subscription for attending). It is now available online at http://www.bkeeney.com/RealStudioTraining/realstudiotraining.cgi
Because it’s Friday and I don’t feel like doing any real work, I decided to pull some stats about our Real Studio training app:
It was originally written in a fairly popular web CMS framework. It was re-written using Real Studio Web Edition (because we could) and went live in late 2011.
We have 39 hours 44 minutes of Real Studio training video available. A little over 6 hours of it is available to non-subscribers.
We have served up over 4,800 hours of streaming video since we began tracking it.
We have a little under 1000 registered users on the web app with about 100 current subscribers.
Web Edition has been interesting. The training area has been our test bed of new for new versions of Real Studio Web Edition and now for Xojo. It continues to grow as Web Edition gets better.
Browser stats actually surprised me a bit. FireFox is stronger than I anticipated and Chrome is much higher than I expected.
Likewise, platform usage surprised me a bit with Windows users at 41 percent. I know very few Windows-only Real Studio/Xojo users so perhaps this just indicates that I travel with a Mac-centric crowd or a lot of Windows users are looking at Real Studio/Xojo and need some additional help. When I get a chance I’ll have to see if I can figure out the stats of subscribers vs. non-subscribers.
