What our members say

"Whilst all of this information is out there, I found it really useful to have it distilled in one place by a technical expert.

Far from being a dry, inflexible academic exercise, the session was made much more enjoyable for being a lively two-way debate between Progress and a room full of like-minded customers. I’m looking forward to doing it again next year!"

"Being a member of the user group, coming to the conferences and wandering around the exhibitions made us aware of several Progress-specific reporting products.

We eventually bought one of these products for a client of ours, saving them several thousand pounds in the process."

"Keeping abreast of the new features delivered with each new OpenEdge release can be a real challenge to busy end users like ourselves.

At the 2013 PUG Spring Conference I attended an extremely useful workshop entitled ‘New database features and enhancements introduced from 10.2B to OE11.2’, where Gareth Payne from Progress explained in detail many of these new features."

" Summer conference: Very good event, so much development in all new areas of Mobile/Cloud/hybrid development.

Progress has a fair few exciting new enhancements which really empower the developer."

" Summer conference: Good event with interesting and relevant sessions. This was the first time I have been to this event but hopefully it will not be the last.

As well as the presentations, it was a great opportunity to catch up with other people in the Progress community."
