2019 Sunday Workshops and Workshop Registration
This year all workshops are being held at the Doubletree Hotel in Manchester NH.
Because of the classroom setting there is limited seating available and we need to be able to accurately predict head-count. So you must purchase a ticket and register below to attend the Sunday workshops.
For workshops you will need to bring a laptop. Workshops use a "remote desktop" to access a "cloud" image that has all necessary Progress software and licenses pre-installed. Every workshop attendee gets a distinct login that they can use. We will keep the images running for a few days after the conference so that you can copy any code that you worked on back to your work environment.
Remote desktop clients are standard on Windows and easily available for Macs or Linux. Detailed instructions are provided the week prior to the conference.
Please make sure that your laptop is fully charged at the start of the workshop. There is a limit to the number of extension cords that we can run and there may not be enough for everyone.
Please make sure that your laptop's firewall and security software is not blocking access to the cloud! If you have a "corporate laptop" make sure that you know how to get access to cloud resources in a public classroom setting outside of your usual corporate connections.

388: Workshop: Beyond the Code, Evolving Your App to the Cloud
Shelley Chase; Progress
This workshop will guide you through the Progress Application Evolution process. We'll outline the underlying business imperatives driving application evolution today, focusing on all development and deployment aspects of a modern cloud application. By separating your business logic from the UI, you lay the foundation to ease modernization. There are then six application elements that you can address in a prescriptive approach: Architecture, Cloud, UI, Security, Data Integration and DevOps. You can select the element of the journey to address first as each step is independent and provides unique benefits. We'll provide an in depth exploration of each as a developer, devops manager and system administrator for a 360 view.
