One of my goals for 2018 is to write more. So here’s an update on stuff.
We hired a new developer who comes on board in a few weeks. I’m really excited about his Xojo experience and what he brings to the company.
The planets and stars aligned and I will be going to XDC in Denver next month. This makes me very happy as XDC is one of my favorite events! I get to immerse myself in Xojo for a week and see all my friends and meet new ones. I’m not presenting so that makes life a little easier too.
The week of XDC is going to be hectic as the weekend before as the FRC robotics team my son is on will be attending the World Championships in Houston. Last weekend they won the Heartland Regional Tournament in Kansas City. After a pretty disastrous first day where a lot of mechanical issues arose they had a solid last day, got picked by the 3rd seeded alliance, and eventually won the tournament (an alliance is composed of three teams) and advanced, automatically, to the championship tournament in Houston.
If you are geeky and interested in what these kids build, here is the final match where they won the tournament. https://www.thebluealliance.com/match/2018mokc2_f1m2
