March 2023 meeting

Our March meeting will be on Tuesday March 21 starting at 6:30 PM US Central Time .

This month we welcome Patrick Behr, a COMMON Speaker of Merit. He has kindly said that he will make two presentations.

This meeting is online, FREE, and open to everyone who registers. It will not be recorded, therefore, if you arrive late you will miss out.

Presentation  Why Procedures Are Better Than Subroutines:
Discover the super powers that procedures have(and subroutines don't) and how they can help you create more reliable and more easily maintained programs. We'll talk about the benefits of input parameters: local variables, and return values, error handling with on-exit, and increased functionality with recursion.
1. The benefits of using procedures
2. How to create a procedure
3. How to get the most benefit out of procedures

What the Heck is Binder Source and Why Do I Care?
Discover what binder source is, what it's used for, and why you definitely want to use it with your service programs. We'll talk about binding, signatures and signature violations, and how to change service programs without having to recompile all your programs.
1. Learn about binding
2. Learn about signatures and signature violations
3. How to change service programs without recompiles
