It's Just That Simple

Western NY LUG Leader

As the Western NY Local User Group leader, last month I planned a meeting without any speakers, vendors, or heavy PowerPoint. Several of our frequent contributors and I collaborated about the question, “What problems are you facing with testing?” This question led to a brief survey which paved the way for what turned out to be a fantastic roundtable.


Our Focus is on the Customer

by Mark Ford
Vivit Board Director
Community Chair

Last month, I attended the Micro Focus ADM Summit in Dallas as the Vivit representative at the Communities booth along with Micro Focus blog editor/community manager, Kim Lock.

In this Issue

Vivit was featured as one of three customer community offerings for Micro Focus with Blogs/Forums and TechBeacon rounding out the trio. I spent most of my time at the Communities booth meeting and talking to fellow and new Vivit members and leaders. As a customer, I’m a big fan of the Micro Focus ADM Forums and working with Kim who manages those forums brought greater insight to me and many other Vivit members who stopped by the booth. If you haven’t checked them out lately, please do. They are a great source for timely answers to your software questions.
