How Many Agents?
It has been quite a few years but recently I was asked how many agents are needed for a Progress OpenEdge Webspeed program? Since Webspeed is licensed per agent process and database connection this can be somewhat important. I have also heard that the Progress support line is somewhat weak in describing this... so I make my method available here.
This activity can only be measured in the number of pages rendered, not per user directly.
A great video on marketing - and it's not just about software - applicable to much. 1 hr long so if nothing on TV, something to better yourself with...
Need an easy manner for customers to interact over a web interface to your company's Progress based application?Submitted by Scott Auge on Tue, 02/12/2013 - 01:42
An easier manner to deploy a Progress app internally with simply an email with an URL and login credential instead of a client/server installation?
Well I am looking for work! Prefer Webspeed on UNIX or Webspeed on Windows - else open to CHUI interfaces and I am good with C interfacing to Progress on UNIX. I can also do web services with Progress. Sorry, not a Progress GUI programmer.
Heck, throw in PHP on MySQL and/or PostgreSQL too!
Not only can I code, I also write documentation! User requirements, technical specifications, user guide, admin guide, quick set up guide… or keep it up on a wiki. Even movies that can be used in training.
Remote work preferred - which means Michigan rates for an ex-Silicon Valley programmer! I can VPN in, Windows Remote Desktop in, or slip in via X11. Keep in touch via email, chat, or phone.
I have my own C Corp for contracting so there are no IRS questions about hiring status or I can be hired directly.

This is a comment I made to an article called "Programmers: Here’s How to Boost Your Career" (http://news.dice.com/2013/01/24/how-to-level-up-your-programming-career/). I think the writer, to some point, missed an important aspect.
What is it?
Voleso is a tool to manipulate templates. Originally it was for HTML pages, but one can use it for changes on any text oriented output. If one is familiar with the SMARTY template processor for PHP, you will be well on your way.
The main idea was for a non-Progress programmer (non-Webspeed web designer) to manipulate the templates and they would automatically appear without recompiling.
Progress version needed?
It's best to be on Progress 10.2x or better. The template processor does not require database tables. The code is written in an object oriented form.
Code is open source under the BSD license.
