The future of DataFlex (Nick N, Joint director DataAccess Europe)

With the recent organizational changes, Data Access Worldwide saw an opportunity to create a better foundation for growth in the Asia Pacific region. The change also marks a different way of how DataFlex is going to be developed, delivered, and supported. Nick shares the plans for future, from different perspectives.

DataFlex 2022 (Harm W, CTO DataAccess Europe)

DataFlex 2022 continues to expand your horizons with significant user-interface additions for your Web and Windows applications, evolutionary language improvements, tighter integration with SQL backends and enhanced performance, diagnostics and control over deployed web applications! Join us for a complete overview of what the latest step in the continuing evolution of DataFlex can offer you!

Hot web features (Harm W, CTO DataAccess Europe)

In this fast-paced presentation Harm will show off the latest additions to the web framework. See how easy it is to apply drag ‘n drop, the superlist and context menu’s in your application.

FlexTron (Harm W, CTO DataAccess Europe)

The FlexTron project offers DataFlex developers to build GUI Desktop applications, using web technology. In other words, your Windows fat client app can look any way you want it to!

Techstack I (Harm W, CTO DataAccess Europe)

We need to take the DataFlex runtime into the future and one of its major features used to be platform independence. Is there a need to run DataFlex code on non-windows platforms again?

DataFlex – How its made (Harm W, CTO DataAccess Europe)

Have you ever wondered how DataFlex is made? What kind of tooling we use to build our Compiler, Runtime, and Studio? During this presentation Harm will be showing you how we use our build-server to get out a release. Also, with our ever-growing commitment to improve, we’ll take a look at what is to come. Using better integrated testing in the build-system, and multipipeline philosophy.

REST API Framework (Clive R, Triumph Business Systems)

Extending the Open Source library from Mike (Unicorn), and lifting it to the next level.

Extending your WebApp with External Libraries (Joseph M, 28 IT – Digitize)

Do you require functionality in your DataFlex app that is available in an open source C++ or Rust library? Joseph will take you through conventions when calling external libraries and how you can bring new functionality to your app.

SQL Tips and Tricks (Joseph M, 28 IT – Digitize)

Getting the most out of SQL in your application and lessons learnt from migrating large embedded databases.

Integrating external resources into your web applications (Tom M, Triumph Business Systems)

Signature Capture, mobile cameras, and Font Awsome.

Elastic Search (Sam C, Main menu systems)

Elasticsearch allows you to store, search, and analyse huge volumes of data quickly and in near real-time and give back answers in milliseconds.

Spreadsheet reporting on WebApp using LibXL (Vikrant K. 28 IT – Digitize)

Vikrant will show a demo and code on effective use of the LibXl library for reporting to Excel in WebApp Mobile style.

And much more…

Also we have three remote presentations from DataAccess experts in USA and Europe:

Diagnosing WebApp Performance (Stephen M, DataAccess USA)

“How big a server should I get?” “What should I set my process pool to?” “What will adding an SPLF server do for performance?” If these questions sound familiar, this session is for you! The new diagnostic metrics that the WebApp Administrator provides are a game changer in determining the answers to these questions and more. Come see how they help.

DataFlex Reports (Vincent O, Training and Support DataAccess Europe)

DataFlex Reports is the default reporting option for DataFlex applications, for Windows, or web. DataFlex Reports will be at version 8.1, and Vincent will cover all changes in the product as of version 8.0, presenting new features and improvements. Perhaps, Vincent will be able to show some ‘work in progress’, new features for the upcoming release.

Docker for Efficient Development (Bram, DataAccess Europe)

Did you ever get into the situation that you had to work with different versions of databases? Did you solve it by using multiple virtual machines? Bram will show how very efficiently this can be solved by using containers. We’ll look at how deployments are tested on multiple different systems in an easy to manage way!
