Contribution: PowerBuilder

PBDJ Blog Post

For the longest time, I’ve wanted to contribute something back to PowerBuilder – mostly in an OSS way.

I signed up to be a developer on the codeplex hosted pfc code that Bruce Armstrong posted, but there is zero activity over there.

I could fork PFC and start a new project, but what I could I add to the project that wouldn’t be better suited just being a part of PFC itself?

I could start a new framework altogether, but that just seems like a lot of re-inventing the wheel.

I don’t have the knowledge to come up with stuff like Brad Wery over at PowerToTheBuilder, so that is out of the question.

I really want to give back to the community, I just don’t know how. Any ideas?
