PowerBuilder Ning Community

Sybase has been reviewing NNTP availability and is looking at alternative ways to build a user community. As a test-bed / proof-of-concept, Jason Fenter has created a community on Ning (http://powerbuilder.ning.com). While Ning certainly doesn't offer all of the features that we'd like to see Sybase eventually implement, he is trying to foster some community involvement on that site. Several of the TeamSybase members have joined already and are available to answer questions there.

Please sign up; give it a try. The hope is that it evolves into more than just a Q&A database, but it won't get there without your participation.

PowerBuilder 11.2 represents another milestone in the PowerBuilder roadmap for delivering .NET interoperability and incorporates new features such as AJAX functionality for WebForms, which enables richer, more interactive data-driven application development.
