Do you know how many sites there are in the U.K. ?
And how many of these are new sites ?

There are 650 of which 35 are new within the last year

Worldwide there are 3900 of which 155 are new over the last year.

These are figures from Pro IV received this morning.

Pro IV would like to know if all you contractors out there would be interested in a "roadshow" so that you can obtain more information.

Please use the poll

A roadshow sounds great. I would like that.

Will there be live bands, and cakes and stuff ?

There's never enough toilets at these sort of gigs. This needs to be addressed beforehand.

With proper planning, it could be a blast !

Are they talking development or run-time? Maybe the later!

I'd be interested in an event where PROIV developers can find out what the future as far as PRO-IV see it is for the language PRO-IV and air their specific gripes and grievances.

I don't know about anybody else, (because we never meet anybody else!!), but we never get told what is planned and the only method we have of communicating with other users and developers is through this forum. PROIV quickly removed their discussion forum from their website a few years ago - thus I have no idea if there is a future in PRO-IV or not, and perhaps they do not either.

There used to be PROIV conferences where PROIV would show us what was planned, and there were even workshops...now either they don't happen anymore or we don't get invited!!

Comments or observations anybody?

Hi,

They still have the conferences, about once per year.

One in the UK office and one in the US office.

They discuss the future and the things that will be included in the next release/s.

Have you upset anyone ?

Hi all,

I believe these conferences have now been termed "Executive User Groups" and take place over two days. If memory serves me right they are limited to the "top tier" of customers, i.e. those spending more than XXX every year.

The companies vote for the features they want and we are told it influences PRO-IV.

That's true. My boss went to one last year or maybe the year before. It may be longer. Anyway - the point I'm making is he didn't take me with him. :)

He came back happy so I guess there was hookers.

Anybody know why smaller companies and individuals are no longer able to contribute?

We all pay good money for some sort of service don't we?

Anybody from PRO-IV want to contribute?

Pro IV are interested in individuals - that's why they are proposing a contractor roadshow. But so far the poll has shown a distinct lack of interest. If you are interested in the future (your future) in Pro IV then login and answer the poll.

Half of what he said meant something else, and the other half didn't mean anytthing at all

Donald,

thanks for the advice - I had already voted on this poll even though I don't know if it applies to me.

You will notice that the word "contractors" is specifically mentioned, of which I, and many others, are NOT.
I work for a software house.

Now, if that is what "Guest" is including in his term "contractors", then great, but it doesn't sound like it.

Steve
