20:35 – 20:40 – Bye bye!
Native apps built with Mendix provide an offline-first capability that works great with a persistable domain. However, if your business plans to use Mendix as a front-end layer only — not persisting anything, but retrieving information by REST service each time that information is required, while also considering web functionality — then you must align web and native in one design. Capgemini low-code expert Wouter Penris will share how this was done in practice as they constructed a front-end layer using Mendix within a complex, multi-layered software framework against very high security standards for a fintech customer. You’ll learn how to design a domain model fit for both web and native, and best practices to prevent compile-time errors while embedding microflows in nanoflows.
During this event, we will demonstrate live how to prevent the compile- and run-time errors outlined in the MxWorld talk, and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and exchange ideas.
