    Default Liberty Manuals - Susan Bush

    Is Liberty Manuals still viable? I haven't been able to connect to their website and I've noticed that it has been a couple of years since Susan Bush has posted on Facebook, LinkedIN or on this forum. I own all of their books on Alpha and found them to be very good.

    Kevin,

    I just accessed their site and all appears to be working.....even added an item to my cart and then deleted it.

    When I go to the company tab on the nav bar...I see this (Which seems to indicate Susan is still involved)

    Good luck....I hope they are still in business and all is well with them.

    Must be my browser. I was also able to access them from my phone.

    Thanks.

    Are their books worth buying? I bought "Getting Started with Alpha Five Desktop Applications" by Indera Murphy on amazon and it was pretty bad. Looking for something that goes into more detail on how to build out a complex app. Maybe show some tricks from advanced programmers...

    I recently purchased the entire collection of manuals in PDF form. So far, focusing on xbasic and desktop but they seem pretty thorough from what I've seen so far.

    Liberty's latest is a little behind the curve and really doesn't address many of the new features. IIRC, their last two Alpha volumes are split into desktop and mobile. They are very detailed and take from the download and installation to building a working model. I don't think you will find much about mobile apps, tablet apps...in the Liberty manuals.

    I think it would be unfair to hold anyone to Alpha Softwares pace - the complexity and changes in the last two years have been phenomenal.
