From June 3rd to June 10th, 2023 I travelled with a team of 31 from Saddleback Church to the town of Dilkon, Arizona in the Navajo Nation. We were there to support the Dilkon Church of the Nazarene (DilkonNaz). (That's my Jeep above on the drive from Winslow, where we were staying each night, to the town of Dilkon).

According to the April 2023 Appeon Newsletter, Elevate 2023 will be held in "mid-November" with registration opening in October. It will again be an free online conference. However, according to the newsletter this year it will be only a one day event (rather than a two day event as in most recent years).

As with Elevate 2021, Elevate 2022 was online only and free. One major difference this year is that there wasn't a call for papers. Instead, I believe Appeon reached out to a number of the regular presenters from prior years and asked them to present at this years event.

They've been available for a while, it's just that I only recently stumbled across them. Check out Exontrol I particularly noticed their Gantt controls. In one of our PowerBuilder based applications we were using a different third-party Gantt ActiveX. The original vendor left the market quite some time ago. We had purchased the C++ source code while they were still in business and had some some minor mods to it. However, we we decided to migrated the application to 64 bit we opted to do away with the Gantt functionality rather than trying to take on the task of converting the ActiveX to 64 bit. All of the controls shown on the Excontrol page come in both 32 and 64 versions, so that is not an issue with their controls.
