It's Not All About .NET

PowerBuilder has been evolving over the last several releases to more comprehensively support .NET, but what if you don't have any plans to go to .NET or the effort to migrate your application from Win32 just can't be justified? Well Sybase hasn't forgotten about you Win32 developers and in this session Dave Fish will show you the PowerBuilder Classic enhancements to be found in PowerBuilder 12.5.
See how you can modernize the look and feel of your Win32 applications without having to migrate to .NET! You'll also learn how you can incorporate .NET code into your Win32 applications so that you can achieve the best of both worlds. Finally, Dave will talk about additional Win32 enhancements being planned for PowerBuilder 15.

Presenter: Dave Fish

Note: PBTV is taking a break in August to gear up for Techwave, but will be back in September 2011 with a whole new set of exciting sessions.
