Introduction to Customization Studio 2012

Date: Thursday March 22nd 2012 at 12:00 PM EST (New York) - 17h00 CET (Paris)

Imagine a PowerBuilder extension that would allow end-users to modify applications themselves! Customization Studio lets them edit a window as if it were a simple MS Office document. Users modify the executable version of the application, without changing the source code, creating an immediate result.
Customization Studio 2012 features a new application called "NCS Designer"; it provides tools designed for non-technical users. In this presentation, we will see how to use these tools to customize reports, add new items in your windows, modernize the look & feel of the application and more...

PowerBuilder 12 remains a potent application development platform that arguably remains the highest-level programming environment for .NET available. But times change: user interfaces are now “User Experiences”, and Windows 7 was a UX game changer. The Internet is ubiquitous, and today, application access is taken for granted. Yet users still want applications that are both powerful and pleasant to use, as well as systems that leverage their computing platforms of choice effectively. In this session, a real-world development project to build an entirely modern, Enterprise-class PowerBuilder application from the ground up will be explored. Topics will include the strategic decisions made regarding platforms, architecture, appropriate reuse, and designing a look and feel with an eye towards for the future. So long MDI, hello WPF. In addition to showing this groundbreaking development effort, the speaker will discuss a variety of ways to update older PowerBuilder applications to achieve higher user satisfaction and productivity, and how to leverage the Sybase design and development tools appropriately. A variety of Sybase tools, including PowerDesigner, PowerBuilder 12 Classic and WPF, and Appeon 6.5 will be demonstrated.
