For the past couple of years, LiveCode conferences have been virtual events, but this year there was an in-person option along with a streaming option for those who could not travel. It was a great time! The LiveCode team is truly a great bunch of people, and the community is equally lovely. It was good to connect with a number of people I've met before as well as make some new friends. Here are some highlights...
- A new version (9.5-dp1) was released. There's really useful stuff in there that should improve the performance of some of my existing projects.
- I was honored to present twice. The first presentation was on lessons learned while creating version 2 of my Scenario Designer application. Second, a flash talk on an app i created a few years ago that actually was designed to live inside a piece of jewelry. Both were well received.
- I was able to spend a couple of hours with Ali Lloyd, the LC Product Manager. We spent some time poking at some performance issues in Scenario Designer that turned up a couple of bugs in the LiveCode engine. I hope to see fixes down the road. Ali was great to work with...thanks!
- Making new friends, sharing ideas, and exploring new techniques and practices.
