Language Essentials

Are you hiring new programmers? Do you have existing Synergy programmers who are unfamiliar with the many added features of the Synergy DBL language? Here’s the perfect opportunity to get them up to speed.


Discover the Synergy DBL Essentials through lecture and applied examples. A hands-on lab exercise follows each major topic to reinforce learning. Students will use Synergy DBL elements to enhance an ongoing sample application. As the class progresses, students will use more sophisticated methodologies to implement the required software solution.

This class also focuses on optimization techniques that will simplify migration to multiple platforms (including Windows). Concepts will be explained in the context of actual programming examples distributed to each student.

A strong emphasis in real-world business programming will foster learning that is both practical and team oriented. In addition to the elements of the Synergy DBL language, students will be exposed to standards and methodologies.

Requirements

It is expected that students attend all five days of the class, unless prior arrangements are made with the instructor. Laptops used during the class must be loaded with the latest supported version of Synergy/DE and Professional Series Workbench.

Who Should Attend?

Students should be comfortable programming in a 3GL computer language, preferably a business language.
