I am pleased to now confirm further details for the Revelation User Group (RUG) meeting to be held in London on Tuesday 25th September.
The RUG is aimed at ARev and OpenInsight developers, MultiValue developers in general (Universe, Unidata, D3, QM, etc.) and also end users that are using MultiValue technologies. The RUG shall take place at the Hilton London Metropole Hotel, 225 Edgware Road, London, W2 1JU and all of the sessions shall be undertaken in one meeting room, with lunch provided and served in the restaurant.
The day shall begin at 09.30 for Coffee and Light Refreshments with the first formal presentation beginning at 10.00. Mike Ruane (President and CEO, Revelation Software, Inc.) will take this first session to talk about where Revelation is at the moment, the organisation’s roadmap going forward (64-bit OI, system management module, etc.) and he will also take a hands on look at some of the new features in the recent OpenInsight releases, including the O4W enhancements and the brand new MVBFS (single code based for the popular MultiValue and SQL Data Connectors).
We will break for coffee at 11:30 for fifteen minutes and then I will take a 45 minute session in which we will take a quick look at the reporting options in OpenInsight and the new Banded Report Writer specifically. Reporting has gained a higher profile in recent years, with management and users needing more information and many wanting to take more control over ways of getting it onto paper. We will not look at the highly technical reporting solutions that professional developers can create for their users using OpenInsight, but we will look at how the BRW can be used by developers and power users to quickly pull printed information together.
Lunch will be provided to all attendees in the Restaurant between 12.30 and 13.30, following which Andrew McAuley (Managing Director of Sprezzatura and RevSoft UK) will talk about Sprezzatura’s recent experience with an O4W project. This session shall look at how developers can push the tools using css to quickly create some nice looking web based solutions using the O4W wizard technology.
Following a short coffee break at 14.30 till 14.45, Mike will once again take the floor and continue his look at the new features and enhancements in the recent versions of OpenInsight. He will also welcome your suggestions for new features that will make your use of OpenInsight even easier and your solution more saleable. Following Mike’s session there will be an opportunity for you to network and continue your conversations in the hotel’s bar area.
Previous RUGs have demonstrated how valuable these sessions are to our EMEA users and MultiValue developers who are considering web enabling their character based applications or simply providing their users with a GUI front end. OpenInsight delivers on these needs and much, much more.
Please contact Martyn if you have not already reserved your place and wish to talk about the benefits of attending in more detail.
