Goldenseal Pro Progress Report #9 (Aug 17)

The contractor who is working on Goldenseal Pro got “stuck”.  He wrote new GUIs (graphic user interfaces) for Windows and Mac, but has not been able to connect them with the database, or our business logic.

We are reviewing his code now, to see how to fix that.  We are also discussing ways to make things go faster.  We are eager to see it finished this year.

Most likely our staff will take on a larger portion of the development work, and we will contract smaller parts of the project.  Our experience over the past two years seems to be that many programmers think they can successfully complete a large job like this, but very few actually can do it.
