Note! the agenda are still under development.  


2nd December



  Topic Time Presenter
DataFlex & Security 9:15 - 9:45 Jeroen Steehouder

 Security, privacy and data protection are hot issues. Most of us have heard about the millions of passwords stolen from LinkedIn, or the private photos of celebrities that that were stolen from their iCloud. Many of the applications built by DataFlex developers contain sensitive data, which makes them interesting targets.

This introduction into the world of hacking describes the game (or is it war?) that attackers and defenders are playing, and some tips on how to get started with the implementation of a higher level of security.




Time based one time password 9:45 - 10:15 Eddy Kleinjan, Data Access Europe

The title could have also been "DataFlex in the world of Authenticators", because that is what this presentation is about. Companies like Google and Microsoft use a technology like this. It supports using more than one way to authenticate a user, accessing a web application. The DataFlex Authenticator is a library using a secret string together with the current time and an encryption method to generate a 6 to 8 digits long number (token) that is used as an extra password for login. By default, this token value get a different value every 30 seconds. The technique itself is based on RFC standards. If you have no clue what this does for you, watch this presentation to find out. If you know what this is about: watch this presentation, because if you are serious about developing web applications, this will make it very easy for you to support TBOT passwords in DataFlex!



Big changes planned for DataFlex v19 10:15 - 10:45 Harm Wibier, Data Access Europe BV

DataFlex 19.0 contains exiting features on the area of web development and the use of JSON. Harm Wibier will show how your web applications become more secure using server web properties and how to communicate with JSON web API’s.

Coffee break 10:45 - 11:15
DataFlex 4 WordPress & CORS 11:15 - 12:00 Mike Peat, Unicorn Interglobal

WordPress is the by far the most widely used content management system on the web. The vast number of plugins available for it have enabled people to use it as a platform for an unparalleled range of different purposes. Actually, far beyond the simple blogging-and-commenting role it was initially developed for. DataFlex for WordPress (DF4WP) is a plugin that allows you to embed DataFlex WebApps (or individual Web Views) into WordPress pages. This brings the power of DataFlex development to WordPress on the one hand and opening up WordPress as a deployment platform for DataFlex developers on the other.

There are more new interesting features to be shown like: Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) you wont miss this presentation from Mike. 


Drag & Drop in Webapplications 12:00 - 12:30 Torben Lund, DataPower

Torben will show you how to extend the standard cWebList class in DataFlex with a Javascript Drag&Drop interface. By integrating this, it allows you to move the items in the list by Drag&Drop, or remove an item by dragging the item out of the list. It also shows how to manipulate the underlying datasource, so it reflects the position changes made by dragging the list items


Lunch 12:30 - 13:30



Building your own Google Search 13:30 - 14:00 Harm Wibier, Data Access Europe BV

The title is a bit misleading, but we like to use it to illustrate that the way end-users look up information, has changed over the years. And this has consequences for how you could develop your new (web) applications. Can looking up a customer, an order, or a dossier be as easy as using Google Search to find the appropriate information? Listen to Harm and find out if it can! Harm did this presentation at EDUC in Berlin but there has been a huge interest in his presentation. So we decided to bring it again with modifications towards DataFlex v19.


Unicode & DataFlex 14:00 - 14:30 Emil Stojanov

 Over the years, DataFlex progressively extended the support for character (sets) beyond OEM, Windows code pages and ANSI. Ultimately, DataFlex will fully support Unicode, but we’re not there yet. Emil Stojanov was challenged with a governmental demand for the support for Unicode, and had to come up with a solution. Unicode and DataFlex; is it myth or reality?

Coffe Break 14:30 - 15:00



Showcase 15:00 - 15:45 Klaus Berthelsen & Johan Broddfelt, FrontIoT

 Internet Of Things whether or how to reach all the way from the top soil in your potted plants to a DataFlex application.

Showcase, where you will like what you see :=) this is going to be new a revolution. 


 What is Internet of Things and how can you as programmer add value to your customers providing them with a software solution from IoT.

End of SCANDUC 15:45 - 16:00
