Announcing Synergy DBL Essentials Online

By Synergex Education, Posted on September 12, 2022 at 2:16 pm

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: if you need Synergy development done, you don’t need to hire an experienced Synergy developer. In fact, you’re probably better off focusing on finding a good programmer with knowledge of your vertical market.

That said, even the best programmer in the world can’t go from zero to sixty without training. That’s why we’re offering our first web-based course: Synergy DBL Essentials Online. This self-paced class covers the basics of the language using video lessons, hands-on exercises, downloadable resources, and knowledge checkpoints. Over the course of seven modules, participants will build a simple Synergy application using the knowledge they gain of concepts such as windowing, Repository, and file I/O.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to

  • Differentiate between and work with the different Synergy data types
  • Add comments, continuation lines, and other language elements to enhance the readability of their code
  • Declare arrays, structures, and groups
  • Leverage implicit and explicit formatting
  • Write alpha and numeric expressions
  • Perform terminal and file I/O
  • Display data in a window
  • Use conditional, compound, iterative, and selection statements to control the execution of their code
  • Create object and executable libraries

…And much more!

Course Content

This course includes

  • Approximately six hours of on-demand video
  • Over 20 downloadable resources
  • Five knowledge checkpoints
  • A certificate of completion


To access, build, and run the code at each stage, participants must have the following software tools installed on an adequately equipped Windows 10 system:

  • Visual Studio 2019 (minimum version 16.8.3) or 2022
  • Synergy/DE installed and licensed
    • Synergy/DE 32-bit
    • Synergy/DE 64-bit
    • Synergy DBL Integration for Visual Studio
  • Additionally, to submit code for review at the end of the course, you’ll need an active GitHub account.

Because much of the class content involves viewing source code, using a typical laptop monitor is not recommended. We recommend using a full-size keyboard and mouse along with a development-grade computer that meets the following minimum configuration:

  • Recent model quad-core Intel Core I5 or higher (I7 preferred)
  • 8GB RAM (16GB or more preferred)
  • Solid-state drive (SSD) storage (installing Visual Studio can require up to 40GB of local storage)
  • Large-screen full HD (1920 x 1080) or higher monitor, recommended 27″ or larger
  • Good quality external speakers
