Access Web Apps present a challenge for many developers. How do they fit into the spectrum of business solutions? In this talk, DAAUG member George Young will review the critiques of Access Web Apps. He will demonstrate various ways to extend Access Web Apps well beyond SharePoint/Office 365, including a full Access 2013 Client application, an Excel Workbook, an ASP.NET MVC Web Application, and an ASP.NET Web API service driving a Windows 8 application.
George Young first encountered Microsoft Access when using the early versions of Office to teach Statistics and MIS in the early 1990’s. It’s been true love ever since! George has worked as a software developer for the past twenty years, including twelve at Microsoft (in just about every group other than Office). He is currently an independent consultant living at 6700 feet in Castle Rock, Colorado, working primarily on .NET applications. George still has a commercial site or two that is driven by an Access database sitting in the server file system.
