See the topics that are on the agenda at EDUC 2020.
Business and technology are changing faster than ever. Data Access is investing to prepare our products and company for growth in the future you will learn what were doing in this EDUC introduction.
The NextGen project will have advanced and many developers around the world have gotten a taste of what 64-bit and Unicode will offer to them. Harm will present what are new features in DataFlex 2020, besides Unicode and 64-bit.
The team kept the impact in mind for the developer, you, who has to migrate to V20 at some point. Compatibility and easy migration are key factors. André de Vries and John de Froe will share how we expect you to migrate your applications, and more
Vincent will present the possibilities to integrate MS Office functionality in your Windows applications.
The professional services teams of Data Access Worldwide sometimes have need for extensions on DataFlex. Some of those are interesting to make available to other developers. Henri will demonstrate some new controls and extensions on DataFlex. At EDUC, it will be LibXL, to support the use of Excel in DataFlex, Quill, a new web editor and a new library to support Single Sign On.
The development of DataFlex Reports mainly focuses on Unicode and 64-bit! Vincent will demonstrate what it means to you, if you use DataFlex Reports in your development process.
The web framework offers very strong and easy to implement navigation. But what if you need to deviate from the beaten path? Henri will tell you how to do that.
A powerful new technique in DataFlex is to seemingly create objects out of thin air, dynamically. Dynamic Web Objects offer an easy way to do this, allowing you a new way to create unique and powerful solutions.
DataFlex is so easy, because it takes care of very technical details under the hood. True, and DataFlex applications are so responsive because of a clever process pooling system. Automated efficiency. However, if you do not understand how it works, things could automatically go very wrong. Are your web apps process pooling proof?
The Order Entry sample in DataFlex Studio is like a good old friend. Its good and old, and we will never get rid of it. Who better than Sture Plato Andersen, to philosophize about that?
In a modern environment where new builds can be pushed several times a week, it is essential to maintain availability. In this presentation we discuss certain boundaries to stay within, and some scripts and techniques that assist you to offer high availability. Marco Kuipers will demonstrate how DataFlex SPLF plays an essential role in this dance.
A utility for easily handling multiple data folders for Windows Desktop applications. It comes in handy when there is a multi-tenancy or client based workspace. Use for example multiple data folders to separate data from different companies/subsidiaries, and allow for the user to select which data folder to use when a program is started.
Find new ways to get intelligence from your data and how you can integrate machine learning in DataFlex projects. Johan will guide you and provide some real-life examples.
With support for Unicode on the horizon, making incorporating multiple languages capabilities in your applications is going to be interesting. How to make all these language translation sets? Can Google help with that?
Luuk will provide some easy to use design tips and tricks for DataFLex programmers. He will provide a simple recipe that anyone can implement, and will make your apps look much better!
João cares for security when it comes to delivering DataFlex solutions. He will share what is now work in progress for a new module that will make it very easy for developers to add security to their solutions. Your future web applications will always start here!
The concept of centralized business rules, captured in Data Dictionaries and automatic data binding, is something rather unique in DataFlex, and it is a great thing. However, more ways lead to Rome, so to say. What about using embedded SQL. Or use traditional commands, like a Saverecord? Vincent will set out what is considered a best-practice approach towards this.
MySQL databases account for over two-thirds of the installed database market. MySQL is supported as of DataFlex 2019 and will be supported in future revisions. Note that there are interesting variations in the MySQL family such as MariaDB and Aurora.
First, we take a look at MySQL cloud options, and review some success cases. Next, we use a familiar DataFlex sample applications to demonstrate the performance of MySQL, compared to Microsoft SQL Server. We conclude with recommendations, tips and advice for deploying MySQL successfully with DataFlex web and Windows applications.
Stephen will explore the area of deploying WebApp solutions. Different scenarios are explained, including Cloud and for an SPLF configuration.
