Yesterday I created a full screencast video recording which is now available online (at the screencast.com link below). The first 20 minutes or so is my own introduction to Servoy, with the demos starting at the 23 minute marker. I also enabled the screencast to be downloaded as an MP4 file to be viewed offline, while it is also available as online streaming via Flash in a web browser as usual. It’s recommended that the video is viewed in full screen mode. The MP4 video file download is resolution 1024×768 and plays crystal clear on an iPad. I also included the slides from the presentation on the download page, exported to PDF format, available in the screencast page Attachments tab section.
The demos in the screencast not only show VFP DBF data being used in an IBM SmartCloud virtual machine server with Servoy with a live public IP address, but also included is how Servoy can automatically create and update a SQL based relational database (in this example, PostgreSQL), but also how Servoy handles updates to the database schema in the database when application updates are deployed. The presentation includes an overall introduction and example of how Servoy can easily deploy and manage hosted applications that can be used for desktop, web, and mobile solutions. Please feel free to email me with any follow-up questions, or contact Servoy with any technical or sales related questions. More information on Servoy for FoxPro developers can be found at http://servoy.com/foxpro.
Screencast: Ken Levy Creates Cloud Hosted Servoy App with Existing DBF Data

Length: 1h 22min
Description: Ken Levy, former Visual FoxPro Product Manager will host this comprehensive one-hour webinar — including a demonstration and discussion on building a web based application using existing DBF data hosted in the Cloud, all created from scratch within the one hour webinar. Many Visual FoxPro developers who have learned to develop with Servoy have found Servoy’s development platform easy, powerful, and beneficial; as well as appreciate Servoy’s dynamic programming features and rich data model functionality. Ken considers Servoy the logical evolution dev tool for VFP developers. In this demo-centric one-hour session, Ken will create a new Servoy web application from the ground up using DBF data from an existing functional Visual FoxPro application – then host it in the IBM Cloud making it available for public internet access without any changes to the VFP application, all within an hour. The various demos will show how Servoy is the ideal development platform for cross-browser, multi-device, and optionally cloud hosted line of business applications – for either migrating or extending existing Visual FoxPro based applications.
