Great was my joy to see RealBasic appear in a text in PC Pro, a British magazine, in the section Real World Computing of the April 2013 issue (I am one issue behind in reading...). However, this joy was short lived as you will see from the quotation:
Kevin Partner, PC Pro April 2013, page 72-74
I keep up with the best coding tools by repeatedly leaping into tomorrow's wunderkind language, from Visual Basic to Director Lingo, RealBasic to Flash, and PHP, Python and a little jQuery. It's meant acquiring plenty of now-redundant expertise (PHP is one of the few to have lasted), but it's made it possible to create bigger projects with smaller teams.
I think it is great that he has tried RB. Sadly, this may have been years ago and his remark of redundant languages does have a point. Many of the plugins and controls to be found for RB appear on websites that seem to be stuck in the middle ages and are probably no longer maintained. However with Cocoa-support getting ready and all eyes on iOS at the Conference, RB might make a comeback. As a community we should spread our knowledge and fun in programming more, so RB gets back on the radar.
Anyway, it might be a good idea for RB to contact Kevin Partner on the current status of iOS and the upcoming IDE-change. Help him change his mind and strengthen the community.
