The OpenEdge plugin for Visual Studio Code (VSCode) is a powerful tool designed to enhance the development experience for OpenEdge developers. This 3-hour workshop is designed to provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the OpenEdge plugin for VSCode, from installation and setup to advanced debugging and deployment techniques.
The workshop will begin with a brief introduction to the OpenEdge plugin for VSCode, including an overview of its key features and benefits. We will then cover the installation process and help attendees get set up with the plugin on their own machines.
Once everyone is up and running, we will dive deeper into the features of the plugin, including its code editor, debugging capabilities, and integration with AppBuilder and Data Dictionary. We will provide hands-on demonstrations and exercises to help attendees become comfortable using these features in their own development workflow.
Attendees will learn how to create new OpenEdge projects using the plugin, how to navigate and search through large codebases, and how to debug their applications using the built-in debugging tools. We will also cover advanced debugging techniques, such as setting breakpoints and inspecting variables, to help attendees diagnose and fix complex issues in their applications.
The workshop will also cover how to use the OpenEdge AppBuilder to manage database schema and how to deploy applications to various platforms. We will provide step-by-step guidance on how to create, modify, and deploy OpenEdge applications using the plugin, and how to integrate these workflows with Git, Docker, and other development tools.
Finally, we will discuss best practices for using the OpenEdge plugin for VSCode, including how to optimize your development workflow and how to leverage the plugin’s features to write more efficient and maintainable code. We will provide examples of real-world applications and share insights from experienced OpenEdge developers to help attendees apply these best practices in their own work.
By the end of this workshop, attendees will have a deep understanding of the OpenEdge plugin for VSCode and how to use it to become more productive OpenEdge developers. They will have gained hands-on experience using the plugin’s features and will have the knowledge and tools needed to develop high-quality OpenEdge applications efficiently and effectively.
