Phoenix 2019 - 8th to 11th April, 2019
This session will provide a brief demonstration of the upcoming AccuTerm 8, discuss the future of WED and focus primarily on modern development tools for MultiValue development. Historically, MultiValue developers have used the old-fashioned line editor for writing programs, and command line debugger for debugging. This antiquated development environment is one reason it is difficult to attract new development talent to the MultiValue world. Visual Studio Code is an open-source, cross-platform, full featured, free IDE which recently has been adapted for use with most MultiValue platforms. There are at least 3 open-source initiatives specifically targeting MultiValue development using common IDEs like Visual Studio Code and Sublime Text. We will review these initiatives, what they offer for MultiValue developers, requirements to utilize them, and community involvement in their future.
