REAL Studio Magazine May-June 2011

Issue 9.4 of Real Studio Magazine is out.  In this issue there’s a lengthy article about the Atlanta Real Studio Conference hosted by the Association of REALbasic Professionals (ARBP) and Real Software.  The big news is that I am no longer the president of ARBP.  I have truly enjoyed my time guiding the fledgling organization but after three years of organization and two conferences it’s time for me to move on.  I’m not going away as I’m staying on as treasurer for at least a year.  If you didn’t know, ARBP paid members can access the conference videos after logging in to the ARBP website.  Direct link to the session list.

My Briefs article is titled When a Handshake Just Isn’t Good Enough – Why A Contract Is Necessary where I relate about how a recent client stiffed me out of some serious money owed to me.  Of course I didn’t have a contract with him because of the referral and the connections this client has with Real Software and the RealBasic community.  Learn from my mistake and always have a contract in place before doing work!

And, as always there’s a plethora of good information and reviews in the magazine and I highly recommend getting it.  It’s not just for beginners as there is good information for all skill levels.
