The Xojo MVPs

One of the best things about Xojo is the community. We are excited to recognize Xojo developers within the community who have made exceptional contributions as our Xojo MVPs. The purpose of the program is:

    1. To recognize the contributions of some members of the community. Our MVPs all have been positive forces in the Xojo community for many years.
    2. To facilitate communication with the Xojo community. The MVPs are there to help us get the word out about things going on at Xojo and also to help the community make sure we are hearing what’s going on with them.
    3. To act as an informal advisory committee. As we develop Xojo, we appreciate getting feedback in the early stages of a particular change we might be making, which is manageable with a small group. We are discussing our product planning with them and giving them very early access to features in development to get their feedback.

Gavin Smith // Northern Ireland

Jeremie Leroy

Gavin has been using Xojo since the first version in 1998. He's used plenty of other languages over the years such as C, Objective-C, Swift and Python, but Xojo is incredibly versatile, so, when he can choose, he always prefers Xojo. He's completed Xojo projects for a large range of clients in many industries, from huge pharmaceutical companies to tiny one-person shops. He feels really passionate about introducing Xojo to younger people and has seen first-hand with his eldest daughter, how much more engaging Xojo can be on the Raspberry Pi, for example, with its drag and drop RAD environment, compared to something like Python. He is hugely excited about the future of Xojo!

Jeremie Leroy, Packr // France

Jeremie Leroy

Jeremie started using Xojo in 2008 when he was a mechanical engineering student. Throughout the years he created many custom controls for Xojo and is now focusing on iOS apps. In 2017 he launched Packr, an award winning travel app that helps pack your suitcase for each trip. Almost three years later, he now has 12 Xojo-made iPhone/iPad apps on the App Store. Jeremie loves great UI and now spends half of his time marketing his apps. He is always thrilled to share his experience at Xojo conferences.
