First it was the mobile phone, then it was the cloud, next it could be… almost anything. Recent technologies are shifting the ground on top of which we build our applications and we need to able to respond more quickly so that we can continue the long tradition of users that love our Omnis apps. To do so requires more than just adding a new interface or changing some features, it requires a shift in the way we approach software development and the way in which we think about our applications and our users. But don’t be alarmed! A small shift in perspective, combined with Studio 8 features and open source technologies, opens a whole new world of rapid development that can help you respond to users more quickly and more accurately.
This talk will focus on the life cycle of software development and ways to monitor, test, track and update applications, as well as revision management strategies for your source. It will also contain a (slightly opinionated) discussion about how to structure an application in a way that allows you to deploy with more flexibility, while also improving testability.
