Over the past year, I've written quite a bit about Xojo, the multi-platform development tool that you can use to create native desktop (OS X, Windows, and Linux), Web, mobile (iOS), and even Raspberry Pi apps. Xojo's rapid application development capabilities make it a perfect fit for projects that require a quick turn-around.
For FileMaker developers, Xojo can be a powerful tool to have in their tool chests. You can use Xojo to develop true native desktop and mobile apps that can be sold in the app stores. You can develop mobile apps that make full use of the mobile devices that they're running on. You can create web apps that scale. You can even build solutions that integrate with hosted FileMaker databases.
But the benefits don't stop there. Xojo's licensing model is developer-friendly. You purchase annual licenses, only for the platforms that you want to build for, and you're done. There are no expensive end user licenses or concurrent connections to worry about.
On December 8th, 2015, fellow FileMaker / Xojo developer Hal Gumbert and I will be panelists on "Xojo Q&A for FileMaker Developers." This is a free webinar, hosted by Xojo Developer Evangelist Paul Lefebvre. We'll discuss Xojo, techniques for integrating Xojo-based apps with FileMaker, answer questions, and more.
