Anyone going in November?
Had not heard about it. Any info?
Check out their website. It is on the main page.
I am going
I will be there too.
I would like to go, but can't make it this year. I think it would be a great experience, though.
Can you guys report back about their "QXpress Online"? That would be my main reason to go if I was going, as there isn't anything about it on their website, but the rumblings are that there will be a big push on it. Sounds like it is going to be **open source** lawn care program, which just sounds too good to be true.
What is "Qxpress online" or "open source"? I currently use qxpress but have not heard of these other things.
Qxpress online is something new coming out. They will be showing a preview at the conference.
Farbio - open source is when software companies pretty much give away the source code they used to create the program so that we can take it and change it for our own needs. I doubt these guys are quite doing that, but the way it was explained to me is that everything in the online version is created using drag and drop tools that we can also use to change screens around and create our own screens. My rep explained it as "imagine the whole program was built using the report designer where you can add and change everything you want".
That still doesn't clear it up for me, and I have no real clue what they are talking about. Hopefully the guys at the conference get a better explanation than I got.
Thanks Doug. That makes more sense. I hope it is a drag and drop system. That would be nice. I definitely would have no idea how to change source code even if they did make it public.
