Software News   Software News : AVD Development Subscription Plan REOPENED
   posted by JamieKrueger on 1-Oct-2005 20:29:43 (2802 reads)
The Foundation Development Subscription Plan has been reopened for a second, and final, enrollment period. The terms of the plan has been updated to better match the current state of development for the AVD project. Don't miss this rare opportunity to support the development of much needed OS4 software, and save nearly US $100.00 off the purchase price in the process.

The FDSP Plan allows you to purchase the Advanced Visual Developer (AVD) suite v1.0.0.0 for AmigaOS4(tm) at the special discounted price of US $120.00, over a simple 6 month payment plan. Membership in the program includes access to in-development versions of the current software, like the soon to be released GUI Builder component for example, as well as a fully licensed version of the entire AVD suite when it releases. Support development on AmigaOS4(tm) today!

See the web site for more details and to signup today.

http://www.bitbybitsoftwaregroup.com/fdsp/index.php

This final enrollment opportunity for the FDSP Plan will remain open only
for a period of 3 months, ending after Jan. 1st, 2006. This special in-development
purchase price and payment plan will not be offered again, so don't miss out on
getting the tools you need for the best price!

Best Regards,

This is certainly worth signing up for. If you're a developer then what are
you waiting for?!

What if you are not a developer, but are curious to learn?

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Good question. I'd say if you're more leaning towards "keen" rather than just
"curious" then you'd benefit from signing up and obtaining the beta tools.
The reaction GUI builder certainly appears to be promising, and then there's
the SDK Browser and the AVD template.

The final products born from this scheme could be pretty benifical to our
platform in the end.

Cheers,
Bean.

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Someone had to say it.

Ok. Going back to my happy place now. We have no hotdogs!!! And you're discussing the recipe for ketchup!!!

AVD will run and be supported on any platform which runs AmigaOS4(tm),
regardless of hardware platform or future processor changes. This is part
of my company's long term commitment to the Amiga(tm) platform.

Hi Jamie

Great work you're doing.

I'm actually thinking about joining this even if I'm not a programmer.
Just for support. Is that ok by you?

So, sorry to be a bit thick, but is this something like MS Visual Basic. Some tools to create the user interface and work with a version of C.

Well I have never been a big fan of Visual Basic,
it's too limiting where it really counts, and has the
great ability to take you quickly through about
80% of your project and leave you hanging,
struggling to find a way to complete it.
That and the required runtime environment is
hideously large and cumbersome.

However, there are some aspects of AVD that
can, and no doubt will, be compared to Visual Basic
and other Visual tools.

To start with AVD is an integrated set of tools which
greatly aid the developer in building their applications
by providing visual tools and actually writing sections
of the application for you. So yes, it most certainly provides
point and click interface building and yes it's main target
is C, rather than it's own language like the BASIC side
of Visual Basic for example.

The first version of the AVD suite to be released will
more closely resemble an IDE plus ReAction GUI Building tools,
while future versions move more toward Rapid Application
Development (RAD) tools, with in some cases 100% drag
and drop application building requiring very little knowledge
of C or even programming.

This is a long term project which is set to deliver highly
useful essentials in the short term, and next generation
visual development features in the future.

The main thing to remember is that AVD's whole focus
is to provide easy access to the power of the operating
system, and is therefore completely OS4 centric. The
target language is C but is by no means limited to using
only C. The foundation object model is based on the
library and class system of the OS itself, and the project
and graphical interface data exchange is based in XML.
As a result there will be many ways to use all or part of
the AVD suite to make your programming efforts much
easier and more fun, without sacrificing power.

I hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

Jamie

Hi Jamie,
Thanks for your answer. That clears things up a lot, I will have to give this some thought and decide what to do before the end of the promotion.

At the moment I can't program. I have had several attempts over the years where I have dabbled, going back to the Days of the C64 with Peeks and Pokes. Usually time gets the better of me. This time though, while time is still an issue, there is additional motivation in that the learning would be for a platform I love to use. I have some knowledge of the stucture of programs and understand the way computers work so I just need to percevere and go that last bit.

Kind Regards

Alan
