 About the Conference

The third International Aware IM Developers Conference was held in Providence, Rhode Island, USA from March 31 to April 04 2018.

The event attracted Aware IM developers from all over the world and was a great success.

The days of the conference saw presentations from Aware IM developers that covered various features of Aware IM, such as deploying Aware IM in the Cloud on Linux, making the best use of the SQL Server features in Aware IM, custom queries and using Aware IM as a backend platform. Awaresoft has also presented the newly released version 8.1, as well as described the roadmap of the product for the upcoming releases.

New Aware IM developers enjoyed the “Zero to Hero” classes presented by Mark Bailey where they have been introduced to the Aware IM development methodology.

Zero to Hero Beginners Workshop Package

To All Aware IM Beginners,

We are pleased to make available for purchase the contents of the Aware IM Zero to Hero Beginners Training Course that was delivered at the recent Aware IM Developers International Conference in Providence.

Totally recreated for Version 8.1

The contents of the Package (Presentation – 163 pages, Recording incorporating some “live” recording and mostly re-recorded for sound quality and the bsv worked version and bonus material )

The topics covered over the workshop are as follows…
• Sound Database Design (and how it should be properly done in Aware IM – i.e..It is different from traditional database applications and if done correctly can reduce development time substantially and prevent problems further down the track
• Naming conventions for Business Objects, Attributes, Reference Attributes, Queries, Folders and Processes
• Installation and setup of the Aware IM Development environment. What folders contain what and which parts you need to concern yourself with
• Navigating the Configurator
• Application component organisation – What is all that stuff in the Tree for?
• Initial Application design considerations – What app can I create and where do I start?
• Building your Business Objects
• Creating the correct References between Business Objects
• Designing your Create and Edit Forms
• Business Object Rules
• Building Queries. When and How to use them
• Access Levels
• Visual Perspectives for Access Levels and for Layouts
• Processes. Basic thru to complex
• How to Create and Send Emails
• Application Deployment

The Workshop application that you will build by following the workshop is a basic Car Hire application.

When someone visits your site, they are invited to enter the Pickup and Return dates for their hire. They then select a Model of car. You learn how to present only Models that have actual vehicles available during the Hirer’s dates. Once a Model is selected, the Hirer is then directed to enter all of their details… email address, Name, Address, Contact Number and Credit Card Details and they are advised of the daily hire rate and the total cost of the hire.
Once they confirm, the system creates them as a RegularUser on the system, allocates and actual vehicle for those dates and sends them and email and log in credentials so that they can then log back in to manage their booking.

While this sample application sounds trivial, it actually presents some unique and important issues that newcomers to Aware IM come up against. Especially how to carry out particular types of processing in the application purely based on a Guest user.

Once you have completed the Workshop you will have learnt a solid foundation of knowledge required to carry forward into more advanced development and it will provide you with a fast-track to understanding how Aware IM works.

When you purchase the Zero to Hero contents, you will also be entitled to one hour of one on one online assistance from me to help you if you get stuck (at a mutually agreeable time depending on time zones)

Once you receive and pay the Invoice, a download link will be forwarded to you.
