I'm finally at a place where I'm developing a team to support some of the codeplex modules. I, for one, certainly appreciate all your hard work guys, truly inspiring. I wish the DNN Community consisted of more people like you, Roger, Ernst. If either of you are available to freelance support to those who are in hot water over the loss of Invenmanager support, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Knowing that Roger is high level sales consultant in a world wide IT services company and works in general more than 40hrs per week and I have to run an IT company with 30 employees there is a ample room for free lance DNN work, let alone if we would be interested to do that (as persons we are not).
I have another suggestion: my company does DNN development work (that seems logical since we are a DNN Gold Certified Partner).
What we could do is paid work on the Events module for an attractive rate, with the condition that we can add the (paid) enhancements and changes to the core, so to the benefit of all.In fact this is what we just agreed with one of our clients who uses the Invenmanager module. We could also bundle enhancements so the investment for requiurements can be shared. We do not have to make big money on this work, that is not our (my) objective with the Events module, but it should pay for the time spend, since I have to make choices how my employee spend their time and we earn our money.
This way we can all profit: there is more time (budget) for enhancements of the Events module, the enhancements be part of the core module and will be maintained in new versions.
Is this a workable solution?
