Visual DataFlex Events

Visual DataFlex Introductory Training

To complement the very successful promotion of Visual DataFlex Personal a FREE, one-day, introductory training session will take place at the Menzies Strathmore Hotel, Luton on Wednesday, 24th October, 9am to 3pm. Whilst the course is aimed primarily at programmers who are new to DataFlex, if you just want to refresh your skills this course is for you. Both Visual DataFlex and the content management system Electos will be covered. This will be a great opportunity for those new to VDF or programming to get a thorough overview of how quickly and easily applications can be written for both Windows and the Web and there will be a team from Unicorn and Data Access to show you how, and to answer all your questions. You are also invited to the join us at the Data Access Seminar taking place at the same venue the next day.

Data Access Seminar

A one-day seminar at the Menzies Strathmore Hotel, Luton on Thursday, 25th October will showcase the Data Access range of products that are due for release this Autumn. Visual DataFlex 12.1 makes building state-of-the art Windows and web applications so quick and easy with its new wizards and faster database drivers, Electos 3.1, a website Content Management System, now includes more options for building web-shops and a soon to be launched Personal Edition of the major revision of Dynamic AI v6, a low cost Business Intelligence tool. There will also be an introduction to DataSlave a Windows product that will help you to move and correct data in your Visual DataFlex applications.

A very full programme has been arranged with presentations on the advanced techniques and capabilities of Visual DataFlex, a demonstration of how to make your application more visually attractive using ’skinning’ and much more. In addition everyone attending will receive a FREE copy of Dynamic AI Personal.
