AppLauncher for Access - a new Access front-end deployment service

Kevin Bell

Anyone who develops Access applications knows you need to split your database. The data can live on a file share, or better yet in SQL Server, and your Access front-end is ideally copied to each user’s computer. Running the front-end locally will improve performance and virtually eliminate corruption issues, but how do you effectively push out a new version out to all your users? Join us as Kevin Bell gives the first public demonstration in the USA of a new deployment service, appLauncher for Access.

Kevin started working professionally with Access in version 1.0 and has been working with SQL Server since version 4.21. For 15 years he ran a small consulting firm in Colorado that specialized in creating custom data driven applications on Access and SQL Server. In 2008 he joined the Microsoft Access Team as a test engineer, working on the Access 2010, 2013 and 2016 releases. Kevin is currently working for a large consulting firm building equity compensation systems for big tech companies. In his free time he enjoys cycling, playing baseball and someday being able to travel the world again searching for the perfect pint of ale.
