Alpha Mobile App BootCamp at Alpha DevCon 2018

October 10-12, 2018 • Orlando, FL

Mobile business applications have been growing dramatically over the last few years and have now reached a point of inflection where mobile application development will outstrip any other kind of application development by a 5 to 1 factor.

To be competitive in this environment, you and your company must become adept at mobile application development immediately --  That is why we have designed DevCon 2018 to be "Alpha Mobile Bootcamp."

The combination of Alpha’s extraordinarily capable platform for mobile app development and deployment, plus the intense learning focus of this event will allow you to materially boost your mobile app development skills and knowledge.

Join us in Orlando, Florida this October and you will walk away confident in your ability to quickly and efficiently address your company’s or client’s mobile app requirements.

Build enterprise-class mobile apps in much less time than your competitors and learn to:

• deliver outstanding mobile-optimized user experiences

• quickly interconnect your mobile apps with any system of record or popular database

• deploy and scale mobile and web apps quickly and easily

• build-out existing desktop web solutions to support mobile apps.


Here’s the type of content we’ve assembled for Alpha DevCon 2018 to significantly enhance your mobile app development skills:


Introduction to the Comprehensive Alpha Mobile App Development Platform

Learn how Alpha Anywhere and Alpha TransForm work together as a single standard for mobile and web app development.  Mobile apps that once took days now take just minutes or hours. By combining the power of both, customers and developers gain massive competitive advantages. Customers see accelerated time to value, and development organizations can now prototype and complete projects in a fraction of the time compared to other developers.

Adding Amazing New Functionality to Your Mobile and Web Apps with APIs

OCR, payment processing, media streaming, SMS messaging, language translation, route mapping, text to speech - if you can think of it, there is probably already an API to do it. In this session you'll learn where to find these APIs and how to add amazing functionality to your mobile and desktop/web applications. Topics include the API explorer, OAS, Swagger - and everything you need to know.

Creating and Publishing Your Own Web Services Using APIs

Publishing APIs with Alpha Anywhere. APIs have revolutionized the way software is created and deployed. Online banking, e-commence, and all modern systems of record rely on APIs to exchange information. And, by the end of this session, you'll come up away with the skills to create and publish your own web services - for you use with other Alpha apps - or apps written using any other platform or language.

Lightning Fast Mobile App Deployments and Redeployments

Gain the skills you need to deploy new mobile apps in minutes and update apps in seconds, using a suite of Alpha technologies, including PhoneGap shell, Alpha Launch and Instant Update. See methods of adding mobile apps to complement existing systems and workflows.

Deconstructing a rich Web and Mobile App

We'll start backwards! In this session, we'll take a functioning web and mobile application, and pull it apart piece by piece to see how it was made. You'll leave with a strong understanding of the best practices for designing, architecting and developing both mobile and desktop/web apps in Alpha Anywhere. •

For System Integrators and IT Consulting Partners: Growing Your Business with Alpha

The addition of Alpha TransForm to the Alpha line-up opens up exciting new opportunities for our enterprise customers, and system integrators and IT consultant partners.

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.
