Speaker Announced for US Omnis Developer Conference

We are delighted to announce that Thad Bogert will join us at our Omnis Developer Conference in Denver, CO, April 30 + May 1. Thad is a long-term Omnis developer, who once worked in Omnis Tech support, and now works as a freelance developer – he has a lot of experience converting Omnis apps from previous versions, and has worked for many different development shops across North America. Thad will cover a great new feature introduced in Studio 10:

  • Using Omnis DML with SQL databases
    A demonstration of DML to SQL translation technology introduced in Studio 10.  The session will cover software configuration, data conversion, and use of the technology within applications that utilize Omnis DML (Data Manipulation Language).

We are truly grateful for Thad agreeing to speak at our conference and feel sure that other Omnis developers will find his session extremely useful towards their own Omnis development projects.
