Unidata Title in Stock!

In a previous issue of the Quarterly Update, we announced Martin Taylor's new Unix and Unidata book would be available soon. We now have them in stock available for immediate delivery.

Pick/BASIC Web Book

We are now offering a reprint of the first textbook devoted exclusively to Pick/BASIC again. Pick/BASIC: A Programmer's Guide, World Wide Web Edition, is now available in a three-ring binder format. It's priced at $39.95 and can be purchased through JES while quantities last.

NT Meets Pick

If your company is considering a move to a Microsoft NT platform, then you should definitely consider attending our new NT courses. Our 250nt course is designed to bring you up to speed on NT in four intense days. The fifth day is a platform-specific version of NT, beginning with NT for UniVerse. The next set of courses begins August 19th at our facilities in Newport Beach, CA.

Visual World Seminar

We will be conducting two interactive presentations of Visual World at our Newport Beach, CA, offices on July 27th. These three-hour presentations will demonstrate this unique productís ability to virtualize business applications. Space is limited, so sign up early.


Cover Story

We donít like to brag ...

... but they say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Using this logic, we have managed to squeeze an additional 6,000 words into this Student Tribute issue. We dedicate it to the students of JES, who have made it possible for us to maintain the number one training spot in the Pick(-like) Industry since 1981.

... so, we'll let our students do it for us.

"Thank you for the fine class that you taught. I was extremely impressed with the presentation and content. It exceeded my expectations. It was a pleasure to meet someone from the "old" days, the golden era of Pick. Although none of us could be considered old we just were young when we started. I also want to thank you for the extra time and effort you put in to answer my questions."
"Great class-very professional."
"I was very pleased with the course, the instructor and her presentation. I would not hesitate to recommend this class to anyone else regardless of their experience."

"I would like to express my gratitude to JES & Associates, Inc and instructor. It was an excellent training course."
"I enjoyed your teaching style and the way you involved the whole class."
"Instructor was great-very charming and kept a technical course upbeat! Also, very patient when students (like me) needed help getting caught up with the rest of the class."
"Instructor was very good making you feel comfortable in asking any questions. he never seemed to tire of answering questions; was always ready to discuss related topics."
 

  "Had a great time and would like to attend other courses soon."
"Wonderful facilities and excellent instructor. This class was very beneficial in teaching the fundamentals. "
"Great class, had fun and learned a lot. Thanks for lunch."

"I had a great two weeks. Learned a lot and had great fun doing it. Thanks."
"I really feel like this strengthened my background. Got exactly what I need out of the class. Thanks."
"... an excellent instructor. Informed, enthusiastic and entertaining. He provided both fundamentals and advanced instructions."
 

  "Because I was thrown into Pick without the benefit of formal training, there were a lot of gray areas. The Pick BASIC programming course solidified the basic concepts; and, through the practical exercises, empowered me with the confidence to move forward."
"Another great class made better by instructor"s entertaining presentation of material."

Thanks. We could not have said it better ourselves.
