We are a Liant shop. I am interested in attending MFW in hopes of learning how MF will handle (or fold) RM/Cobol into their existing product line, but my general sense is that these things tend to be a lot of sales hoopla (I used to work for a software vendor myself). If that is the case, then I'll push to have my boss go. If this is going to be productive for those of us in the trenches getting the work done, then I'll push for myself to go.
Code what you mean,
and mean what you code!
But by all means post your code!
