We have a treat for you on the night: Glen Kleidon will give a remote presentation on his Arpy framework!

out the server complexity allowing the developer to focus on the business
logic.

The presentation will cover:

Up and running with Arpy.
– Very brief intro to the Arpy Documentation – where to find what you need
– “Installing” Arpy: from GetIt or direct from the resources and how that
is different to how things are traditionally installed
– How and why to use the Arpy Web Api Project
– How and why to use Arpy Web Site Project
