8:45pm - 9:00pm : Open Question and Answer

Almost any real application needs to store data, and usually that means using a relational database. In the real world, building an application that uses a database is a complicated, even messy business. Complicated and messy mean slow and inefficient. This presentation is about the libraries, tools, techniques and workflow for developing AIR SQLite applications (learned through lots of trial and error) that help me work faster and better.

UTD Campus Map: http://www.utdallas.edu/map/ You will notice in the bottom right the building marked "SOM". That is the School of Management (also shown in the legend).

Once on UTD:

Make sure to enter the school via "University Drive" on Campbell Road. From this main drive you will get to the courtesy officer and be able to get a parking pass.

You can park in Lots J, Q, or M (around the building) as long as you park in a "Green" or "White" space. The curb and bumpers at the school are painted the colors. This information the parking officer will also give you when you head on campus through the main entrance - through University, shown at the bottom of the map.

Once in the SOM (there are no time restrictions on the doors) there are signs and directions to the different numbered classrooms from any entrance, at that point it should be very easy.

If you're having problems finding your way let us know.
