Rabins reviewed the advancements made this year and previewed future product capabilities the Alpha engineering team is working on, including integration, UI experience IIS, app distribution and mobile forms development. In onsite conversations, customers expressed excitement about many of the roadmap items, particularly around speed of development: Slide1Slide1   Vice President of Sales Morris Porter then presented customer awards for the long-standing customer and farthest international traveler to the conference. Dan Bricklin then took the stage with some members of the engineering team to showcase new features in mobile development, including a deeper dive into usability and mobile optimized forms. This afternoon, technical sessions on design, stylizing apps, cloud deployment and troubleshooting will continue. Simultaneously, customer case studies running next door will include a government inspection app, a zoological app and a sales app. The technical and case study sessions continue tomorrow, when we’ll share our product roadmap and end the day with networking/birds of a feather celebration tomorrow night.

Thanks to all our customers who are making this a valuable experience for each other and the Alpha Software team. We're learning as much from you as you're learning from us!

A recap of yesterday.  Read about Tuesday’s training session. For the Alpha DevCon agenda and details for the rest of the week.

The Alpha platform is the only unified mobile and web app development and deployment environment with distinct “no-code” and “low-code” components. Using the Alpha TransForm no-code product, business users and developers can take full advantage of all the capabilities of the smartphone to turn any form into a mobile app in minutes, and power users can add advanced app functionality with Alpha TransForm's built-in programming language. IT developers can use the Alpha Anywhere low-code environment to develop complex web or mobile business apps from scratch, integrate data with existing systems of record and workflows (including data collected via Alpha TransForm), and add additional security or authentication requirements to protect corporate data.
