View Full Version : Training & meetings

Hello all,

I see a few threads about training every now and again but is there a company about that offers it as a standard 'package'?

Also have there been any UK meetings/conferences?

Other than the excellent training provided last year in London by Alpha, I am not aware of any formalised training. Some of that is still available on the web via Alpha.

There used to be an Alpha Users' Group that met and shared ideas. The last meeting was a couple of years ago and the Group seems to have fallen by the wayside.

If there was enough interest and a defined agenda, I would be willing to host such an event (in Paisley, beside Glasgow Airport). My office could seat 15 to 20 in comfort.

I found the earlier User Group to be a great forum to share and learn and it would be to the benefit of us all if we could revive it.

Agreed it would be good to get the User Group up and running again.

Hi Alasdair,

Just joined the forum and saw this.

I'm based in Bishopbriggs and carry out a wide range of general IT stuff! Including some development in Alpha.

The training would be good as would a local support group.

Happy to help.

Hi Jim,

I would still be happy to host a workshop - if there enough people out there interested in participating.

Hi David

Not that I am aware of but if there was enough interest I would be happy to get involved in setting something up.

We (The Farplants Group) have used mentoring via teamviewer from Start Software to great affect. Really moved us on in our alpha development. We were experienced SQL/C# developers but not Alpha, Xbasic or JavaScript.

We will see if there is enough interest :)

I have a team member who would benefit from some Alpha training - desktop only

I'm in South Wales - we use alpha extensively for a non-profit youth organisation and would be interested in sharing and extending our knowledge
