The VistA Expo and Symposium announced that Rob Tweed of M/Gateway (News - Alert) Developments, Ltd. will teach a three-day intensive training course in rapid web application development with Enterprise Web Developer (EWD), just prior to the start of the Expo & Symposium in Seattle. The course will run September 8-10 and the Expo September 11-14 at the same venue. The course will provide in-depth training in the installation, configuration and use of EWD, which is fast becoming the de-facto toolset for web-enablement of VistA.

The main focus of the course will be the use of EWD alongside two of the best Javascript frameworks currently available: ExtJS v4 for desktop web applications and Sencha Touch 2 for mobile web applications.

The course is appropriate for both beginners and active users of EWD who want to update their skills in the use of these leading-edge Javascript frameworks. The training combines classroom teaching with hands-on development exercises. By the end of the course, attendees will have the skills needed to develop modern HTML5-based web and mobile web applications for VistA.
