Alpha DevCon Engineering Roundtables

Mobile Optimized Forms

Beta Roadmap

The basic plan for the beta test is to start with beta 1, which has the functionality needed to run a form based tablet app, but does not have all the genies for building the app. This is accompanied by a sample app written by Dan B. that can be used as a starting point for your own apps. Dan has also created a video of the app's operation. The code for the sample app is heavily commented. Over the next few weeks, more of the core functionality will be added to the beta build. We'll also release videos on a regular basis that explain how this functionality works.

Beta 2 will include a simple builder that lets you define an app with less work. Beta 3 will include a graphical form builder that will make it possible to create a complete tablet app in a few minutes. When this is complete, the first production version of the tablet features will be released.

The best way to speed up this process is to give us as much feedback as possible, so we know what type of apps the builders should be optimized for. We'll be starting a tablet beta forum on the Alpha Software message board to gather this feedback.
