January newsletter

Dear everyone

Happy New Year!! I don’t think that can be said too often in these times.

DataFlex 2020 (2021) Beta 3 can be downloaded at the following  link. Despite Covid-19 and isolation, Data Access has worked hard on the development of the new generation of  DataFlex. And we can expect a release within the next few months. Despite Beta, several of our customers, including ourselves, are already developing in 2020/21.

We can recommend our Thursday video just released on YouTube. Here Johan talks to Albin Visén from Prosmart AB in Sweden about current migration of their entire ERP system to DataFlex version 2020 (2021). It is an exciting and inspiring talk that you can have great pleasure and inspiration from listening to. Thank you to Albin for his contribution. If there are any questions, please contact Albin

Redaction Library for web applications.
Data Acces has built a new layer of security into DataFlex 2021. In order that the same security features will benefit earlier versions, Data Access has developed ‘Redaction  Library’ for web versions  18.2 and 19.1. For more information and download click on the following link.

5 good suggestions on what mistakes many make when they develop in DataFlex WebApps. Another informative video posted on the  DataFlex learning page. We recommended to watch it.

A good story continues…
Our story in the previous newsletter about how quickly a system was developed in DataFlex for use in addressing a ministerial institution in a very necessary situation. This has generated so much attention that Data Access Worldwide has written about it. Read about it at the following link – it’s (also) a good story.

We will be able to provide a newsletter shortly, where we will take a closer look at the new features of the upcoming DataFlex version 2021.

Many greetings

December newsletter

Dear all

This is our penultimate newsletter this year. We hope all our customers and business associates are in good health.

DataFlex 2021 beta 2 is released and can be downloaded at the following  link. Data Access has made a  video that describes how to get the most out of the new version that they have renamed for 2021.

A good story.  Maybe you haven’t really thought about how effective the development tool you’re actually working with is. We can tell a story about a great need for help in developing an IT solution in an emergency using DataFlex.

As a result of Corona, an urgent need arose last month from one of the ministerial institutions in Denmark to develop a system for recording some much-needed processes. As it would take an unnecessarily long time with internal procedures and the desperation was great. Therefore, Sture Aps and FrontIoT jointly offered to develop a system in a very short time. In fact, we developed a fully functioning system in DataFlex, running on a SQL Server, in less than 12 hours. Interested parties can read more about the details at this link.

DataFlex is LEAN, DataFlex is full-stack-development tool. We love DataFlex and proud of this story that you are welcome to tell further. We look forward to 2021!

“Casual Conversations” We have in recent months made videos with the common title “Casual Conversations“, which we have uploaded on Facebook and  Youtube. We have also invited selected programmers of our customers for an interview with Johan Broddfelt. And lastly Unicorn, the UK DataFlex Channel partner, has included the videos in their newsletter.

Also, remember to stay up to date with the DataFlex Learning Center, where new videos are uploaded on an ongoing basis. .

If you have any questions about DataFlex or need consultancy help – please contact us. We are happy to help or find the help that fits.

FrontIoT Autumn News

Dear all

Here is some autumn news.

DataFlex 2020 Beta 1 has been released:

Last week, the release of beta 1 was announced by Data Access. We encourage all our DataFlex developers in Scandinavia to download and test the Beta 1 build of DataFlex 2020. It is now possible to test the new 64-bit and Unicode features with your own applications. We hope you will spend some time testing it so that any bugs can be reported to Data Access at the following link.

Mike Peat from Unicorn has written a blog about rest’s importance to APIs.. With his usual sharp attention to detail, Mike gives an insight into RESTFUL’s importance to the API and with sample code he shows how it can be done. You will get an “aha” experience by reading more about REST at the link below:

New YouTube channel
FrontIoT, like all companies, was for a long period shut down for active attendance in the office. We are, however, back again, but these online meetings inspired us to record videos of an informal chat between Johan Broddfelt and Klaus Berthelsen, about various IT topics and which are not necessarily of a technical nature. The idea is to make this – a platform – where other developers are also welcome to participate.

Join our YouTube channel  and be notified every time a new video is released about once a week. The more people signed up and “likes” the better.

Unfortunately, we still cannot invite to SCANDUC, our Scandinavian developer conference, which will normally be held at the end of November. There is also a uncertainty about  the EDUC, the European Conference, announced to be held spring 2021, but instead moved to sometime after the summer 2021.

Remember! Data Access continuously uploads new online courses and product news on the  DataFlex Learning Page..

Many autumn greetings

Summer letter

Dear all

The summer is now at its peak, but the weather does not quit reflect that. That is why this newsletter will contain good ideas and links for inspiration to what you can use a rainy or two for in the company with DataFlex.

Klaus recommends this video:
This video should be mandatory for all who develop Web applications. The title ‘Process Pooling’ covers a comprehensive review of how the Webb App server works. Special focus is on ‘All that can go wrong if you don’t get it reight’.

Johan Broddfelt recommends this video:
“What makes web application development a lot more fun is that you can design your own components only limited by your own imagination. That is why I recommends this video that shows how you can build your own components and in this way expand the flexibility in your DataFlex tool box”.

EDUC online seminar 2020. When the prospect of a cancelation of EDUC 2020became a reality DataAccess in just a forthnight organized an online event with the same agenda and education with speakers from all over the world. All paying participants now had the opportunity to join the on-line seminar and new participants were able to join. An impressive presentation by DataAccess and the success was great!

If you are curious, it is possible to watch the entire event at the following LINK – it will only cost you 150€ and you will get access to the entire seminar. Please contact Charlotte Grønvold cg@frontiot.com for further information and access.

How to set up a live Stream Event: Wouter Olthof, video producer at DataAccess EU, provides in this 14 min. video good advise regarding an on-line event.

With this summer letter we would like to wish all our customers and business partners a really good summer. In the next newsletter we will write about DataFlex Reports 2020, which will be released as ‘Technical preview’. This first version can now run in a 64 bit environment with Unicode data – look forward to this.

Kind regards,
FrontIoT ApS
