Elevate 2019 Report


The event was held at the same location as last year, except that last year it was a Sheraton and this year it's called Philadelphia Marriott Old City,  (Marriott bought out Sheraton in 2016 and has been upgrading the old Sheraton hotels since.)  The event ran from Oct 28th to 30th.  This is the third year Appeon did it themselves, and they really seem to have worked out all the kinks.  It was an excellent conference.

Webcast: PowerServer 2019 and PB C# Web API integration: Why, When, How

In this community webinar, Marco Meoni, Appeon MVP, will show you how to utilize new features of PowerServer 2019 (in conjunction with PowerBuilder 2019) to free your apps from the desktop and limitations of client/server architecture. You will learn about how to thin out your application by deploying business logic as C# Web APIs utilizing the new .NET DataStore of PowerBuilder 2019. And then convert your application UI into a Web app that consumes your C# Web APIs utilizing the new REST features of PowerServer 2019. Since majority of the work is automated by the migration engines in PowerServer and PowerBuilder, this Webinar will focus on the manual work that is involved.

Recording of the Webcast will be sent to all registrants, so we recommend you register even if you can’t attend.
