With Exchange Online 2009 coming right up (September 15-17) I wanted to remind people of the availability of a set of introductory videos that cover a lot of the basic topics related to using OpenEdge Architect. They're all available directly from the OpenEdge home page on the PSDN area of Progress Communities:
There's a landing page for five introductory videos to get you started using Architect for the first time, covering topics such as creating your first Architect workspace and project, defining database connections for your workspace, setting project properties, building and running your project, and using the ABL Editor that's a central part of the value of developing in OpenEdge Architect. That page is here:
And then there's a continuing series of topics that go beyond the Getting Started series covering subjects such as defining and using perspectives and views, maintaining structured procedures created in the AppBuilder, using the ABL Debugger, and various more advanced features of the ABL Editor. Those sessions are all available here:
The videos are designed to be fairly self-contained, so that you can view what's of interest to you, though there is a recommended sequence to them that's indicated by their organization on the site. And they're kept to around seven or eight minutes each so that you're not overwhelmed with content and can try out what you've learned in each video before proceeding.
We're very interested in your feedback both on this specific set of presentations and on the general format that they use. We're already creating new video series, some accompanied by documents with text and code samples, to help you get started with other major parts of OpenEdge 10, including the support for classes and the GUI for .NET. Keep us posted on your comments and recommendations.
