    This year we have the opportunity to run a 2-day JavaScript and AJAX training session run by Mike Peat from Unicorn InterGlobal. Mike is well known amongst his peers in the DataFlex community and has made presentations at past Synergy, EDUC and Corroboree events.

    As a recent quote from an attendee below will attest this is an excellent opportunity to update your skills and take advantage of Mike’s unique insight on the subject matter.

    “I attended the JavaScript training Mike facilitated at the EDUC 2010 conference. The quality and level was very pleasantly intense and Mike’s humour helped staying focused. I can recommend Mike, and in specific this training to anyone that knows a thing or two about JavaScript but needs to know more about the objects, closures and namespaces amongst other advanced techniques.”
    The cost of this 2-day course is $550 per person and runs on Tuesday the 4th and Wednesday the 5th October prior to the conference. Bookings can be made on our website. However due to the logistics of organising training we should be grateful if you indicate your interest by either sign up for the course or contacting us no later than by the 19th August.

    Thanks to everybody who attended this year’s Corroboree and JavaScript Training in Melbourne.
    This year the Committee were very pleased to welcome overseas guests Chip Casanave, President of
    Data Access Worldwide, and Mike Peat from Unicorn InterGlobal Limited.

    Our event of course would not be same without the proverbial hiccup . Last year was the evacuation
    due to a fire and this year relocation to another room due to a faulty router and Internet access.
    However obstacles aside the event was jammed packed with excellent presentations, from local and
    overseas individuals, covering a gamut of topics from virtualisation and the cloud, source control,
    SMS integration, VDF X-Ray, Flex2Crystal – Crystal Reports 2011, online accounting and much more.

    Data Access Worldwide roadmap for VDF 17.x was of particular interest. Developers can look
    forward to enhancements to the data-dictionary class including better management of runtime
    locally based relationships, alias tables and better support for optional child / parent relationships,
    increased table and column names sizes, YouTube style tutorials, improved client web services plus
    much more. The ‘big ticket’ item in the VDF 17.x release cycle is the introduction of cWebObjects
    and the integration of the AJAX library into the Studio.

    Our door prizes this year were exceptional and much sought after. Congratulations to all our
    winners include Phil Kirby (iPad 3G), Vicky Curphey (iPad), Allen Langman (Nano), David Smith
    (Shuffle) and Linda Marshall (NZ wines).

    This year’s Informal session and AGM was a lively affair with discussion centering on the proposed
    online ordering trial, our local Australia and New Zealand market place and the role of DAW’s local
    representation. The Corroboree concluded by unanimously voting to reconvene next year on the
    Gold Coast. Adieu for now and see you all again in 2012.
