When Can You Be Productive with Formspider?

The resources here should help you get up to speed in the next two weeks.

Major Formspider Pricing Update for PL/SQL Developers

We recently ran a survey among our users and asked them what we can do better. Interestingly, the biggest pain point wasn't about the product but in the way we licensed it. Our licensing made it very difficult for developers to start small. After a few email exchanges with several users it became clear that we had to do something. We are happy to announce that we are correcting the mistake we made.Starting today, Formspider is distributed with the traditional developer seat license. This simple model makes Formspider very straightforward and affordable for the two million PL/SQL Developers. Download Formspider and start building amazing web applications, today.
