New Course: Professional Application Development With Revolution

Revolution is an incredible cross-platform development tool for quickly creating programs that run on Mac, Windows and Linux. But creating a professional, polished application that is ready for release still requires a great deal of know-how and expertise.

Blue Mango Learning Systems, author of the free and open-source GLX Application Framework, is pleased to announce a new online course targeted at application developers: Professional Application Development With Revolution.

Course Overview

This course uses the GLX Application Framework as a foundation for teaching developers how to create great applications with Revolution. The GLX Application Framework provides the underlying infrastructure you need for creating professional-grade applications on Mac and Windows. This allows you to focus on making your application unique and valuable instead of wasting time setting up mundane features such as undo support. Using the framework saves you time and makes you more productive. This is the same framework that we use in our application ScreenSteps.

This course will cover how to:

  • Organize your application within the GLX Application Framework
  • Utilize framework features, such as the preferences API, to remove unneeded headache from the development process
  • Deal with cross-platform issues
  • Establish a repeatable process for updating and distributing your application

The course will be presented by Trevor DeVore of Blue Mango Learning Systems. Trevor is the programmer behind ScreenSteps.

This course will be delivered via webinar and includes a 100% money back guarantee.
