Need to build an application to run part of your organization? One approach is that you could start writing something from scratch, perhaps leveraging an existing general purpose framework to help get you going. However, even if you use a framework, there’s still the need to build all those standard components such as user interface, workflow, and ACL security, which can take quite some time to design and code.

There’s no need to start from scratch; SugarCRM is designed as a Rapid Application Development platform. In this half day tutorial you’ll learn how to build a business application on the Open Source SugarCRM platform.

When you attend this tutorial, you will receive a Free hard copy of the O’Reilly eBook, Building SugarCRM: Creating Applications the Easy Way

ALONG with a way cool T-Shirt

PLUS you’ll be included in the Grand Prize Drawing for an iPad2, taking place on Thursday, July 28th @ 3:00 pm in SugarCRM Booth #601
