Title: Transforming Your System From Informix-4gl to Genero – The Many Options and First Steps.
Abstract: When transforming from Informix-4gl to Genero there are many options available to you. Over 20 years of development effort has gone into the Genero toolbox and it can be tempting to use all these new features at your disposal at once. In this presentation Reuben makes you aware of the many tools in the Genero toolbox. He demonstrates the first steps in the different directions you can take with these various tools to make sure that you successfully add value as you transform from Informix-4gl to Genero.
Title: Wordle 4 Genero
Abstract: Wordle is a web-based word game created and developed by a software engineer Josh Wardle who originally created a game for himself and his partner to play. It became a viral phenomenon with millions of players playing every day. In this presentation Reuben answers the question, “What if Josh had been a Genero developer and written Wordle using Genero? ” Reuben will demonstrate features and syntax that Four Js has added to Genero that show this would have been possible.
