I've been developing and administering Progress systems for the last 25 years, but only ever up to version 9.1D.
I've downloaded the 11.7 Classroom Edition and have started scouting round the internet for resources to get me up to speed on what changed in the the Progress world in the last 15 years.
Any suggestions for sites / documents others have found useful would be gratefully received.
You can use the following Classroom resources:
There is also a set of online trainings, unfortunately most of them are paid, but there are some free courses among them.
Cheers Valeriy, I'll add those to my list.
I am currently following the Progress Education Community. This is a set of online courses that are available for a full year for $1500. Not very much for the amount of courses. The level of some of the courses is sometimes debatable, but overall it is a very good resource. Currently I am following the course on the PASOE appserver.

Cheers Patrick. I'll check that out too.
When you download the classroom edition of the OpenEdge Developer Kit, you will be automatically subscribed to the Progress eLearning Community. This subscription gives you free access to the core ABL Developer courses.

Thanks Elaine. I've just finished installing 11.7 and will check that out.
I suggest you try and read up on some generic OO programming concepts and design patterns, regardless of the language, and try to apply these in ABL.
