EurOmnis 2016 (13th September 2016)

I am pleased to announce that I will be attending EurOmnis as a speaker again this year. As usual, my main subjects will be Omnis notation and external component development with a focus on JS Client development. For 2016 I have prepared a completely new presentation for designing your own custom JS Client controls without resorting to c++, and I have updated the notation presentation to include important new Studio 8 notation. I will also be demonstrating the use of Brainy Data components in commercial sessions which may be of equal interest to those new to our software and to old hands. One focus will be on designing a point-and-click interface for the various OWrite merge fields which allows developer to add formatting and other custom merge options to their merge fields.

I will also be demonstrating OWrite for JS Client which will be in beta release stage. This means that all features that will be included in version 4 of OWrite/JS OWrite will have been implemented. I will also be happy to discuss the possibility of using OWrite without the Studio JS-Client by connecting to the Omnis server via other routes.

For a detailed description of my session please visit the EurOmnis website at As it has now become tradition, we will be offering large discounts off our software to all EurOmnis attendees, so if you have not booked your conference tickets already, I urge you to do so now at

I hope I see you there
