Servoy 8 Beta Program Announcement

Postby pbakker » Wed May 28, 2014 3:50 pm

At ServoyCamp earlier this year, we lifted a bit of the veil on what is in the works for Servoy 8. This next major release of our product is scheduled to be announced at ServoyWorld ‘14 beginning of october this year.

The people who attended ServoyCamp where very enthusiastic and the word spread quickly to others who weren’t able to attend ServoyCamp.

Today we lift the veil a bit more and for everyone. Additionally we open the sign up for the private beta program.

Servoy 8
Some who already heard what is in the works said it is the biggest thing since the introduction of the Web Client in Servoy 3. Other called it the best thing since Servoy itself… We call it the Next Generation Client.

Nowadays apps need to provide an unparalleled User Experience in order to compete. This means excellent performance and a design that delights users and makes the app intuitive and easy to use. And of course this app needs to run on the desktop, but also on tablets and mobile phones.

From a development perspective a maintainable codebase is needed, in order to rapidly iterate to enhance and extend the product.

For Servoy 8 we set out to tackle the following items
  • Leverage the styling capabilities of modern browsers
  • Introduce layout options to allow responsive designs
  • Easy way to create new or wrap existing custom components and integrate them
  • Improve the performance of the client

With the new NGClient we have tackled the above. Based on a technology stack that includes some of the newest technologies like WebSockets and Web Components, the new client offers unprecedented abilities to extend the Servoy platform and build modern, competitive and delightful web apps with Servoy.

Private Beta
As of today the sign up for the private beta program is open!

Enrolling in the private beta program will mean the following for you:
