Below are excerpts from Vasic's interview with Steve Wood, President of IADN (featured this month on the IADN website):

IADN Alpha Anywhere mobile app development"The project I’m working on now is called, 'Agency Data' and it is a very large program. I think I’ve used almost every component that Alpha has created. I’d say that 99% of the application is within the Alpha Paradigm. I use custom code sparingly. But when I’ve needed to write something custom Alpha Software is very accommodating."

"I’ve designed the web desktop app to look and feel like a client-server app and of course the mobile app feels like native OS. I use IIS with a 100% encrypted MS-SQL database. I have encrypted documents on AWS. I have Several API’s that I built with Alpha Software to pull data into the application. Plus, I’ve used Google charts."

"I’m a true Alpha Evangelist. I couldn’t have written, 'Agency Data' within the time frame and resources with another IDE. The lessons learned are these:

  • Stay within the Alpha Paradigm.
  • Build your apps to grow (They always grow). 
  • Build functions.
  • Build your app to use multi-tenants, even if you think that there is only going to be one tenant. This way you can set up a test company and test in production.
  • Use Alpha and IIS security from the beginning.
  • Encrypt your database. Create templates with standards and conventions. This will speed your development exponentially. Use the UX components with arguments, in other words, don’t use session variables or older components.
  • If you get stuck use the Message Board, IADN, the release notes and videos...If you can conceive it, Alpha probably can achieve it."
