We've been conducting a number of online training courses for Alpha Five. The courses have been very successful. Here's a sample of the reactions and suggesstions I've been receiving.
If you're new to Alpha Five, I urge you to sit in on the next training course. As you can see here (verbatim), it'll be worth your time.
Richard, I attended the course to see what others are doing with Alpha and to see if I could make improvements on any of my coding and design techniques. The course was outstanding and I could certainly see it being useful to others. Additionally, the gentleman that presented the content did an excellent job.
I can say with conviction what a terrific job your company has done thus far and the direction is truly impressive. I know this because I was able to complete a project in a few hours compared to a few days, if I used VS2008. We are doing some development in VS2008 to comply with a request from a vendor, however, Our major claims and customer service portal will continue to be developed with Alpha, as well as, all other future projects.
Only makes sense a few hours vs. a few days. We pride ourselves as being nibble and versatile and we try to leverage any and all technology that can get us there. Alpha is tops on our list!
I would certainly like any information regarding Alpha and its future direction?
I have to say that it was a great class. I have been working with applications and just starting to working on the web. I can read the books and that but it is nice to see someone do it. Steve did a great job. Was a bit fast at time but I was able to keep up. I would like to have seen more of Ajax and a user control creating an account. Steve kept talking about showing it and maybe he did but I did not notice.Good class and keep more coming if you can.ThanksDan S.
Thank you, Richard. Steve emphasized the Alpha community yesterday; I've never seen anything like it from a software company!
I thoroughly enjoyed the class. While 6 hours is not alot of time to cover much material, I learned alot. I would like to see more page design with an emphasis on navigation and tabular controls.
I Just wanted to leave some feedback for the course on building Web apps per your request.
I can honestly say that for being the very first webinar of its topic, it turned out quite well. Steve did a really nice job with staying true to the course outline while providing answers to questions which could have easily led the meeting away from its intended focus.
I will have to say that Steve's class was just to the point of being an overload to people like myself that wanted to absorb as much information as possible in the short period of time. I am curious to see what would change (if anything) in the next meeting.
I was looking forward to the AJAX introduction at the end of the meeting and was disappointed that the meeting hosting service forced the class to be cut short when Steve was both prepared and willing to continue with the Ajax topics. Otherwise, the class was very informative and was a great source of insight of the power and possibilities of alpha five web applications which further justified purchasing alpha over File Maker pro and the others. Hopefully Steve will release a video copy of this meeting as it is a valuable source of well thought out information that cannot possibly be retained in a single sitting..
Well done Steve, Richard, Brett, and all of you at Alpha Software for a great product along with a great support system.
Thanks for everything!
Feedback: Excellent course. Steve really gives you a visual working demonstration of the potential power of Alpha Five. I am looking forward towards applying the principles presented and moving forward with our ecommerce web applications. Thank you Brett for guiding me to the last two online courses. They were invaluable.
Yesterday’s course was very good. My aim was to get a feeling and understanding of session variables. I am happy to say the Steve answered my questions and sloved my how to’s.
I would suggest that you do another day’s course in Ajax and another one on xbasic / xdialog. I know these are complex subjcts but I feel that there are a lot of people, who like me need to get the initial push.
I write software for a living and need to transfer my knowledge / daily needs to A5 and therefore such sessions are a great service.
Thanks & regards
