Time for the summer 2017 WMPUG meeting and golf outing!  We're pushed back a little bit to August 17, but we'll follow the same path as in years before... meeting in the morning, optional golf in the afternoon, food included with registration fees.

The meeting will be at ISS' offices again... 4300 Plainfield Suite I in Grand Rapids. Park around the back of the building.

There will be a nominal charge for this meeting: $10 for meeting, $10 for golf, $10 if not preregistered, $10 if not a member.

What's New in OpenEdge 11.7? - Martha Lynch, Marie Candela, Evan Bleicher, Progress Software
By now you’ve heard that there has been a new release of OpenEdge, and you’re asking what’s in there for me?. The simple answer: Plenty. Come to this session to get an overview of the major features that you’ll find in OpenEdge 11.7. Hear about: how you can track changes in your database to easily enable ETL; why you have even more reasons to try out the Progress AppServer for OpenEdge (PASOE); the latest development and deployment tooling improvements; plus those ABL enhancements you’ve been asking for. And much, much more.

Golf is limited to 20 golfers and the golf course is being nailed down. It will be a four-person best ball scramble.  Please indicate in comments whether you plan to golf.  

Golf location is being confirmed, but it will again be friendly for those who pick up a club about once a year ;)

Stay tuned for more information!
