Take your Skills to the next Level
Are you a Web Connection Developer looking for an opportunity to expand your skill set and hobnob with other
Web Connection experts? Then look no further than this year's Web Connection User Conference in Gilbert Arizona
at the SanTan Elegante Conference & Reception Center and Legado Hotel, just prior to the
Southwest Fox conference this year.
Immerse yourself in two days of training presented by Rick Strahl, creator of the Web Connection Framework, so you
can learn from the horse's mouth how to utilize the powerful features of Web Connection. This year's presentations
focus on the new features of Web Connection 6.0 and introducing Web Connection to new and experienced
developers alike on Day 1, and with a number of focused conference style sessions on Day 2.
Day One: Introduction to Web Connection 6.0
Day one introduces Web Connection to new users starting with installation and a
short overview of the architecture. You'll see how to install Web Connection and create a new
project and see several different ways of creating request output for your Web applications and
the core framework features. We then walk through creating a small application so you can get a
good feel what it's like to use Web Connection in typical server side Web development. We'll
introduce how to use templates and script to generate HTML, how to integrate with Business Objects
to separate your UI and business logic. We'll also see how to make the most of the integrated
Bootstrap CSS framework and creating nice looking Web UI easily.
You'll learn what you need to know about HTML and CSS as well as how to generate the HTML from
your FoxPro application using both code and dynamic script templates.
In addition to introducing Web Connection to new users we'll also demonstrate the new features
of Web Connection 6.10+. You'll see the new project layout, the new default templates both for the
project as a whole and also the new page templates for Visual Studio to simplify new page development.
We'll also lean heavily on the improvements in the script and template engines using Layout Pages,
Partial Rendering and Sections to make it easier to reuse HTML layout in Web applications.
Day Two: Conference Style Sessions
This year we'll take a slightly different approach than years past by having the second day
be comprised of self-contained, conference style sessions on specific Web Connection topics.
We haven't finalized the exact sessions just yet, but here are a few ideas that have come
up and have been suggested:
- Creating Secure Web Connection Applications
- Building and Deploying Web Connection Applications
- Creating and Consuming REST Services
- Enhancing Server Side HTML Applications with VueJs
- Optimizing Performance of Web Connection Applications
Sessions for Day 2 have not been finalized - if there are sessions that you would like to see
please stop by our Message Board and let us know what you want to see covered.
We want you to walk away ready to build sophisticated Web Applications with Visual FoxPro faster than ever
before. As usual these training workshops involve audience interaction so you help shape the format of
