I have looked over some older versions of this resource and think it would be a great asset to have. I would love the chance at a free six month subscription especially to see about purchasing the bundle that includes the videos and all of issues 14.

A little tip: if you encounter a problem during your programming, research the problem (e.g. by searching and asking on forums and working your way through the documentation) then why not write an article about it? You’ll help others, get some recognition for your efforts, and earn a few $$ in the bargain ;-)

@Markus: you are 100% right. Writing isn’t that hard and while the remuneration won’t buy you a fancy dinner it sure gives you the satisfaction of helping fellow xojo-programmers, keeping you connected with the community (and at least buy you a beer :-) )

It not for other’s code examples, books and articles written by so many gifted people, I would not have had a 30 year career in the software and hardware business. Markus and Mattias, you both are exactly right. No matter how simple or how complex, passing on information that in some small way helps even one person is a contribution to itself.
