The Sybase Users’ Group of Texas will hold their next meeting on Tuesday, June 28, 2011, from 2:00pm – 6:00pm (earlier time than normal). The presentation will be various topics on PowerBuilder, including presenting the PowerBuilder 12.5 .NET PowerBuilder Classic beta and new feature list, a peek at the PowerBuilder Product Roadmap, a Roundtable discussion with PowerBuilder’s Product Manager Sue Dunnell, and individual sessions available for specialized discussions.

Register for the June meeting at:

Our afternoon will begin with an opportunity to network with your peers, followed by some brief introductions and any business the group needs to conduct. Then we’ll move swiftly to our “Feature Presentation” delivered by Sybase Rockstar, John Strano who will be LIVE in person!

PowerBuilder 12.5 has a lot of new features for both .NET and Win32 developers. In this session John will demonstrate the new .NET targets for PowerBuilder Assemblies, WCF Services, and Custom Visual User Objects (CVUOs) as .NET Assemblies. John will also demonstrate several new WPF DataWindow enhancements, and how PowerBuilder applications can call RESTful web services. Win32 developers will learn how they can update the look of their applications with new DataWindow enhancements as well as see new features for PowerBuilder Classic controls.

Up next will be Sue Dunnell, the PowerBuilder Product Manager who will present the roadmap for PowerBuilder, and then John will give a sneak preview of enhancements planned for PowerBuilder 15, including an HTML5 DataWindow, and Dockable window support for Win32 PowerBuilder applications.

Afterwards we’ll have a round-table discussion about PowerBuiler, followed by some optional one-on-one/small group sessions where you can sit down privately with Sue to discuss your organization’s PowerBuilder needs.  You can register for one-on-sessions during the meeting registration process. If you have already registered, you can update your registration to request a one-on-one session.
