Cloud, shmoud: Alpha Five still builds awesome desktop apps

It's easy to get caught up in the excitement of cloud computing. Alpha Software has done a lot of work in this area over the past couple of years with our Codeless Ajax technology, and I can't wait to share what we're working on in the mobile space for future Alpha Five versions. But never let it be said that we left our desktop developers behind.

I introduced you to Don Lavigne in a case study we wrote on his desktop application HealthSoft Solutions last year. Don, a chiropractor with no background in programming, developed an application that gives chiropractors and physical therapists the ability to create a daily patient record in a matter of seconds and generate complete reports with the push of a button.

Since we published the case study, Don hasn't stopped discovering all the nooks and crannies of Alpha Five Version 10.5. He's been updating his app and put together a sleek new demo of what he's been able to build. Right now, HealthSoft Solutions is a desktop application, but Don will be deploying it to the cloud over the summer.

Give Don's demo a gander. It's an excellent example of Alpha Five's powerful and rich framework for building desktop or hybrid (desktop/Web) applications. And if you have any demos of your own Alpha Five apps, send them to me to feature on the blog.
