CREATE YOUR OWN EXCEL/ACCESS
VISUALIZATIONS & ANALYSES

Bring your laptop! You'll be able to create your own Excel/Access Visualizations & Analyses. You'll learn how ViSta works with Excel and Access, and how to put this together with ViSta's open development environment. Then, you'll be able to customize visualizations and analyses for your Excel and Access users.

LEARN ABOUT CVS - THE DEVELOPER'S SERVER

UNC's new CVS server provides coordinated access to ViSta's open source and documentation base. The CVS server supports and coordinates developers who want to extend, enhance, fix, or otherwise change ViSta's code, and writers who wish to document new features, update old documentation, write an Intro Stats book featuring ViSta, etc. Learn how to gain access to the server, how to use it, how to contribute fundamental new features to ViSta, and how to alleviate the documentation problem.

MEET OTHER VISTA DEVELOPERS

There will be plenty of open time to renew old acquaintences and meet ViSta netizens face-to-face. There will also be plenty of structured time to learn about new developments in ViSta development.

Remember, space is limited to 24, so sign up soon for the first-ever ViSta Developer's Workshop!
