New software development training seminar combines software training with targeted commercial sessions to prepare developers for on-going changes in the technology sector
Online PR News – 30-August-2013 – Huntingdon – The technological landscape is changing at a rapid pace, most notably in the direction of mobile and web technologies. Taking an innovative lead, Asckey Data Services Ltd will be hosting FUSION 2013 in Cambridgeshire, UK, 9 & 10 October; a future focused commercial and technical training seminar that aims to prepare application developers to meet the challenges ahead.
The theme of the event `future-proof your business’ aims to equip developers with the right tools to take full advantage of this shift by being fully attuned to emerging market trends and honing their skill set accordingly. Developing a proactive, future-focussed approach will enable developers to provide the most suitable technology to allow businesses to take maximum advantage of this rapidly changing landscape.
While Windows continues as the platform for many business applications, the greatest market opportunities and consumer demand lies in applications for the web and mobile devices. Seamless integration of mobile/web functionality into existing applications is a key objective and the event will be an opportunity to review popular developer tools including Visual Dataflex (VDF). The recently launched version VDF v 17.1 is of particular relevance to web focussed projects. Offering a new module `DataFlex Web Framework’, it addresses the technical challenges that traditional web development methods can often impose by simplifying the development of web applications and offering limitless development power.
Targeted commercial seminars aim to provide guidance to sole traders and small businesses looking to expand. A finance focussed session looks at how a robust, on-going research and development programme can reduce tax payments! This potentially popular session provides an overview of the Government’s Research and Development (R&D) tax relief programme in relation to Corporation Tax.
Bernard Hill, Asckey’s Commercial Director said: “FUSION 2013 was created as a means of uniting the developer community in a shared goal. By refocusing on the needs of the client and their longer-term business objectives, it is possible to develop new and innovative software solutions. This approach ultimately supports business growth potential by being in a position to offer the most effective tools to create new or enhance existing functionality to create more efficient ways of doing business.” He continued: “Our training ethos is based on a desire to support the developer community which in turn, will help support the wider business community”.
FUSION 13 is open to all UK and European partners. The event will be the first in a series of themed annual events that will focus on current software trends and related business opportunities in order to offer timely training solutions.
