As you explore the rich world of Alpha Anywhere, you'll find that on-demand video is often the best way to acquire handy bits of knowledge or fill in the gaps in your self-taught expertise. That's why Alpha Technology Solutions is building a library of instructional videos narrated by our own master instructors. We currently offer three video training options:
Here is a complete sample video on Making the Database Connection from our Getting Started series.
Narrated by our master Alpha Anywhere experts, this free video provides a crystal-clear overview of the platform's key features and capabilities. (This video is also a prerequisite for all of our ATS training courses.)
Here's a complete video on Xbasic variables.
This six-hour course in Alpha's Xbasic scripting language is an essential resource for any developer who writes server-based applications. The narrator of the series is Jay Talbott, an ATS master instructor who has been developing custom applications with Alpha software for more than 20 years.
This video is an example of those that you will receive on a weekly basis with your "Tips, Tricks, & Techniques" subscription.
Every week, veteran developer and instructor Max Hammond delivers a ten-minute explanation of a valuable (and often undocumented) Alpha Anywhere feature or capability to our subscribers. Over time, they're able to build their own library of practical coding techniques that they can consult whenever they find themselves faced with a "how-the-heck-do-I-do this" problem.
