September 93 - Editor's Note
develop does it again! We're thrilled to announce that we've won another Excellence award, this time
in the 1993 International Technical Publications Competition, sponsored by the Society for
Some things that are worth noting in this issue:
- We're very happy to finally have a female author. Welcome to Deanna Thomas;
may she be the first in a long line.
- We've added a strange new column called "View From the Ledge"; please let us
know what you think of this irreverent (or is that "irrelevant"?) addition.
- We're temporarily without a Print Hints or Graphical Truffles column. But
there's a lot of information about printing and graphics in our three QuickDraw
Finally, here are two changes that have happened as a result of your feedback:
- Tech Notes are numbered again, this time within each category of Note.
References indevelopwill include the new number after the category; for example,
we might refer you to the Macintosh Technical Note "Fond of FONDs" (Text
21). With this issue we finally stop giving the former number of a Tech Note, as
in "(formerly #91)"; those old numbers are long gone.
- NewInside Macintoshis now on thedevelop BookmarkCD. It was painfully missing
from Issue 14's CD, but we have seen the error of our ways and have quickly
rectified the situation.
Please keep letting us know what you want; it pays!
CAROLINE ROSE (AppleLink CROSE) has written and edited more technical documentation than she cares to remember. In
past work lives, she was also a programmer and (gasp!) a manager. She's worked for Tymshare, Apple, NeXT, and
Apple, in that order. But no previous job compares to the variety and fun she enjoys as editor of develop. Caroline is still
raving about the great time she had at the Worldwide Developers Conference in May. We suspect the highlight was
when a developer asked her to sign his copy of develop -- or was it when she took the Karaoke dare at the WWDC
party? Recent delights outside of work include singing like a wannabe Bonnie Raitt at jam sessions with her friends and
listening to tapes of John Prine and Richard Thompson from an incredible music festival she attended in a mountain
