Excerpt of article text...

The Real Studio Users London Group (RSUL) had a meeting in the World famous town of Wimbledon in the London Borough of Merton, home to tennis, Wombles, and windmills.

The event took place at the end of the broadway at the Antoinette Hotel and was chosen for its very convenient location with many unique facilities nearby, such as the Theatre, Children's Polka Theatre, numerous restaurants and shopping centres and nearby outdoor markets.

On the evening before the event, a few participants met at the hotel for drinks and dinner later at the nearby Jimmy's Grill and Bar, a spot that was to become a very popular choice with everyone.

The first day of the event, Thursday March 29th, was a very sunny and warm day and the day of the Real Studio training, organised by Christian Schmitz from Monkeybread Software. Twelve people attended the training where Christian gave an introduction to Web Edition and showed examples of web applications. Christian then organised a walkthrough and everyone had an opportunity to develop examples which used various web specific controls.

In the afternoon, after the lunchbreak, everyone had a chance to develop a web application which used a database to store data. There followed a session on best practices with tips and tricks and writing Web Apps with optimized iPad/iPhone integration and finally a Q and A session. The training by Christian was excellent and everyone benefited from the training.

The main event was the meeting day, on Friday March 30th, another warm sunny day. The meeting took place in the Trafalgar Suite of the hotel, named after the famous battle fought in 1805 between the British, French and the Spanish. The British Navy was led by Admiral Lord Nelson who lived just around the corner from the hotel and is associated with many parts of Merton. The Trafalgar Suite is a large meeting room in the hotel and was the perfect location for a meeting.
