Microsoft has a nice tool for automating application workflow, called Azure Logic Apps. Using a visual designer, with little or no code, you can automate aspects of your SQL-based Access application, such as logging to your database, sending notification emails, and much more. In this talk, we'll introduce Logic Apps, and develop two in real-time: sending a regular status email on a recurring schedule, and updating a database table in response to a change in another table. Join us for this look into another way that your Access application can play in the cloud!
George first encountered Microsoft Access when using the thirty-plus floppy disk 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-five years, half of that time at Microsoft (in just about every group other than Office). He is the founder and president of Dawson Butte Software, working primarily on .NET applications (often with Access somewhere in the mix). George still has a commercial site or two that is driven by an Access database sitting in the server file system.
