Description

Description

Many AutoCAD software add-ins depend on a database to store relevant information. For years, databases such as Microsoft Access were used to give multiple users access to the same data. At some point, it may have become necessary to move on to a more powerful platform such as SQL Server or Oracle. Now moving to a cloud-based database such as Microsoft Azure SQL database is easy enough to demonstrate the entire process from beginning to end in a 90-minute class. Developers no longer need to wait for their IT department to create a new virtual server and install software before they can begin work on a new project. For literally pennies a day, a developer can create a new cloud-based database that is visible to anyone running their software without worrying about VPNs, firewalls, and an approval process that takes months to complete. This session features AutoCAD, AutoCAD MEP, and AutoCAD Map 3D. AIA Approved
