How were the TripTrak databases modeled?

by Andrea Maioli on 06/10/2016

Last week I told you all that Instant Developer Cloud is now available. Today, first and foremost I want to thank you for your interest: so many of you tried the system that the servers we’d planned weren’t enough to host all of you!

We launched a challenge to help give you a clear understanding up front of the kind of applications we’re talking about: How do you develop a real-world app?, and I hope this piqued your curiosity.

Today I’d like to dig into the answer, starting with what’s behind the scenes: How were the TripTrak databases modeled?

It’s an interactive tour designed to help you see how databases are modeled in the cloud, as well as those on offline devices. If you’re curious, click the link above. You can also get there from

Users of Instant Developer Foundation will find some familiar concepts, but seeing as how we’re in the cloud, you’ll find plenty that’s new, of course. For example:

  • The database servers are ready now – they’re preconfigured and don’t require any special administration.
  • There is also a Cloud Connector that allows you to publish closed corporate databases in the cloud, without having to open the networks.
  • Database schemas can be shared among the various editions of Instant Developer, so you won’t have to waste any time redefining them.

That’s why I’m inviting you to try our interactive tour and let me know what you think! Finally, I’ll remind you that it’s still possible to reserve the free coaching service for setting up your projects. Just write to this address.
