Dispatches from Alpha University Boston

Alpha University training courses kicked off this week in Boston at the DoubleTree Hotel. I was there on Monday to open the training at the one-day Learn Xbasic class. The room was full of Alpha Software enthusiasts ready to take Xbasic to the next level.

I welcomed everyone and then turned the floor over to veteran instructor and well-respected Alpha Five developer Jay Talbott. He gave outstanding training on manipulating forms and using Xbasic in applications. The rest of the morning was spent with Alpha Software's CTO, Selwyn Rabins, teaching variables, scripts, action scripting, and more.

Many hands went up, which is always a good sign of a class who is learning what they came to learn. After lunch, Jay once again took the spotlight and went into manipulating forms, using Xbasic in applications, Alpha functions, and more.

It was a great opening day for Alpha's first-ever dedicated Xbasic class. I think our attendees walked away with a new wealth of knowledge. I'll be back a little later with a recap of and photos from day two when I was hopping between the Advanced Web Applications and Advanced Desktop Applications class.
