Andreas Engler was born in 1973 in the city of Krasnodar in Russia and moved to Germany in 1995. He is married with 2 little children. During his first apprenticeship in Russia he has taken a real shine to programming. His first steps of database programming have been done using BASIC and text files. Subsequently he took the route from Basic, TurboBasic, dBase and Clipper to Xbase++. In the summer of 2006 he founded the „XUG Osnabrück“ and is their VIP ever since.
Introduction into sourcecode version management with Xbase++ using Subversion
Most of the Xbase++ developers today are still working without using a version management system or are storing their different versions in a corresponding directory structure. Life is getting harder if (e.g.) error corrections have to be applied to the latest release and the current version still under development or if more developers are working on one program. Although there are tools that are easing our life – be it for a team or a single developer.
At first glance a version management system does not look like it is easy to use and needs a lot of preliminary work – therefore this session is used to alleviate the first steps into version management in theory and by practical experience. It is intended to show a complete installation from the beginning to the end during that session. The used operating system will be Opensuse (Linux).
Frax (FastReport for Alaska Xbase++)
Those who are looking for a report writer for their projects that is not only fast but also offers a lot of options like reports from dbf-, sql- and array-data, charts, barcode, graphical report designer etc. for the developers and users do not need to look any further.
FRAX is going to be presented using some practical examples for including and usage of the report writer.
