** End of an ERA **
I just wanted to formerly acknowledge the end of a great PowerBuilder Community resource ... the PowerBuilder Developers Journal magazine. In case you had not noticed, the last publication of the magazine was on March 6, 2013. Also, online digital editions had ceased to be updated since the end of 2009. As of late, you can not subscribe to the PBDJ magazine either - only various the Syscon news letters.
Just to make sure, I tried to contact my PBDJ editor Nancy Valentine and then to be even more pragmatic emailed the VP sales, subscriptions, etc contacts as well. All of these contacts are published on the Syscon website but the emails were returned as undeliverable. From there, I went to the Utilizer website and tried to contact them as Utilizer now controls Syscon. The final response I received from them is that the PBDJ Magazine was no longer but the PBDJ web portal was still running.
The PDBJ web portal does still accept articles written by Utilizer authors and verified RSS feeds like the one I have from this blog to PBDJ. This means that you can still publish to the PBDJ web portal using either of these mechanisms. Looking the PBDJ website though ( http://pbdj.sys-con.com ) most of the current articles are actually from my blog transferred over to PBDJ via my automatic RSS feed. So not much new content related to PB seems to be evident these days.
I would also really like to thank Bruce Armstrong for all his years of service to the PBDJ
Unfortunately, with the demise of the PBDJ magazine, the whole PB community has lost another great resource in the PB Ecosystem!
