Omnis Academy
online knowledge

The Online Academy course is split into five parts, in which you can build a mobile app for managing orders for tables in a restaurant, called “Cucina Piccola”. There is a video for each part, and you can download a resource library, and the final Cucina Piccola app, to help with your app development. The videos are recorded in English by Andreas Pfeiffer, Senior consultant with Omnis Software Germany, who has over 20 years experience creating enterprise and web applications in Omnis Studio, as well as speaking at tech conferences, and teaching the in-class academy courses.

To work on the Omnis Academy course you will need to download and install the latest Omnis Studio – a basic knowledge of Omnis Studio or a similar application development tool would be an advantage.
