Learn how to create an app with no programming from start to finish using the new Nitro App Builder in Valence 5.2. A Customer Dashboard is created showing a pie chart and summary list of customers by country. Any country can be clicked either on the pie or list to show a map with markers and some key indicators.
In this video Richard Milone, co-founder of CNX, takes an interesting walkthrough of the three major generations of Valence and how they have evolved over time. A particular emphasis is placed on how much more productive you can be developing with the latest generation of Valence, especially when using the Nitro App Builder.
This video is about Valence 5 Installation
This video is about Valence 5 Portal Overview. The Valence Portal serves as a home for organizing and launching Valence applications on your IBM i. It can also include links to other web pages, or even launch other IBM i-based web applications developed using packages other than Valence.
Most of the administrative features of Valence are controlled through an app called Portal Admin. This video explains how to access the individual entities within the Portal Admin to maintain the various elements in Valence.
This video demonstrates how to upload and apply a custom logo to the Valence Portal and also how to make adjustments to the Valence Portal theme.
In this video, Iwona from CNX will demonstrate Nitro Autocode by showing how to create a Desktop Grid Inquiry.

This video is about the Valence 5 Nitro File Editor, a browser-based database utility used for viewing, editing and downloading data from any physical or logical file on IBM i.
Richard Milone brings you through the entire process of creating the Load All Grid example app. Learn how to start with the Valence app Template, use the Test RPG Call app to generate a data model to connect to your RPG program and how to use Sencha Architect 3 to graphically design the app. Finally learn how to test and deploy the app through the Valence Portal.
Learn how to install Sencha Architect 3 to your Windows PC and get ready to develop the user interface portion of your Valence Framework apps. This video also includes other important steps like installing software dependencies (Java Runtime Environment and Ruby) as well as how to map a network drive to your IBM i and test that Sencha Architect 3 is working properly. Note: Mac users can install the OS X version of Sencha Architect and in most cases not worry about dependencies--a JRE and Ruby are already on your Mac by default.
Iwona from CNX demonstrates some of the features of Valence Portal for iOS.
This fun video runs through a number of typical IBM i crisis scenarios and shows how Nitro iAdmin can solve each problem--while you're sitting on the beach.
Richard Milone from CNX will show you how to create an app with no programming from start to finish using low-code Nitro App Builder. Apps generated with Valence 5.2 - Nitro App Builder are truly modern, with a great UI and work on both desktop and mobile devices. In this Webinar a Customer Dashboard is created presenting the summary list of customers by country as a pie chart and a grid. Clicking on any given country in the pie chart or grid will bring up a map with markers and some key indicators about customers in that country.
In this webinar replay Richard Milone and Robert Swanson from CNX give a detailed overview of the Valence Portal, a discussion on Valence architecture and a detailed application development example. Webinar was originally hosted by IBM Systems Magazine.
This video walks you through the the main elements of Valence Nitro apps: Data Sources, Widgets, and the Nitro app definition itself. Also learn about how "Behaviors" are used to allow Widgets to interact with each other as well as special server tasks.
This video shows an example of how to quickly convert an old IBM i green screen query into a Valence Nitro App Builder which can be easily deployed through the Valence Portal to desktop and mobile users.
This video shows an example of how to create a powerful pivot grid in minutes with Valence Nitro App Builder, starting from nothing more than a free-form SQL statement.
