 Join us for the HUG Access SIG Meeting via Zoom:  

 

Presentation:

 

Title:  Source Control for Access Database Applications

 

Presenter:   Rob Kraft

 

Description:  

Would you like a record of the changes you made to every line of code and every property in an Access database?  Have you ever made changes that broke a feature then wondered what change could have caused the failure?  I have a simple process to share to store changes in git.  You can track changes to your code, macros, queries, reports, and every property on every object in an access database. Since I believe it won't take long to cover that topic, I will also share a few other lessons learned such as, "How to disable all right-click menus except for copy/paste.", and "How to invoke spell-checking in your forms".

 

Bio: 

Rob Kraft has decades of software development experience mostly on the Microsoft stack.  He used to teach classes on Visual Basic, Microsoft Access, and SQL Server.  He is currently an independent consultant that recently migrated several Microsoft Access applications to use SQL Server.  Rob lives in Lee's Summit.

 

Q&A Session:

Bring your Access questions for the group to answer, explore or brainstorm ideas.

 

 

Upcoming Meetings: 

 

Please consider sharing a presentation with your fellow Access Users.

In the spirit of the times, the Quarkus Team virtually presents a big, loud, and bold, rock & roll mega-stadium tour.

For the last 25 years, Java has performed for organizations across the world but you've never seen anything like this. We'll cover all the classics like "Start Me Up" and "Living' on a VM" and some new jams like "Stairway to Native" and "Sweet JPA of Mine" and more.

In this session the Quarkus Team will give you a unique, hands-on experience: An introduction to Quarkus, a follow-along hands-on demo or two and then a Q&A with some of the band, umm, developers involved.

So join us as we explore how Quarkus helps Java developers everywhere to be more productive, create modern masterpieces and, well, have more fun: 90 odd minutes of technical discussion, some live coding and a Q&A - it's going to be a blast.

Oh and did we mention swag? Maybe even a Tour T-Shirt?

Time to rock the Java world 2021 style…

Speaker: Yair Segal is the founder and CTO of Peach Software, an independent I.T. consulting firm with years of experience delivering custom mobile applications for a variety of clients.

Mobile applications require cloud services for actions that can't be done directly on the device, such as offline data synchronization, storage, or data sharing across multiple users. One option is to design, configure, manage these services yourself but the easier, faster, and more scalable solution is to leverage Amazon's collection of services for mobile applications.

You see Scrum and other Agile frameworks being utilized across corporate America. From start-ups to the largest corporations, some form of Agile is being utilized. Most Agile journeys start and get stuck within an IT department. What is enterprise or business agility? Is it really a scaled framework across IT, or can it be much more?

First and foremost, Agile is a mindset – a way of thinking; and a set of practices – a way working. The fundamentals can be applied anywhere for success.

Explore how Agile thinking and practices can be used effectively across every team in an organization in 'non-traditional' areas. Legal, Marketing, Personal Bankers, Risk Management, Sales, Auditing, Corporate Finance etc.

In the spirit of the times, the Quarkus Team virtually presents a big, loud, and bold, rock & roll mega-stadium tour.

For the last 25 years, Java has performed for organizations across the world but you've never seen anything like this. We'll cover all the classics like "Start Me Up" and "Living' on a VM" and some new jams like "Stairway to Native" and "Sweet JPA of Mine" and more.

In this session the Quarkus Team will give you a unique, hands-on experience: An introduction to Quarkus, a follow-along hands-on demo or two and then a Q&A with some of the band, umm, developers involved.

So join us as we explore how Quarkus helps Java developers everywhere to be more productive, create modern masterpieces and, well, have more fun: 90 odd minutes of technical discussion, some live coding and a Q&A - it's going to be a blast.

Oh and did we mention swag? Maybe even a Tour T-Shirt?

Time to rock the Java world 2021 style…

Join us for this webinar as we discuss how to create impactful case studies with the right structure that will help your portfolio stand out from the rest.
