The Rexx Language Association was established to further the understanding and use of the Rexx programming language. With the release of Object Rexx and NetRexx, RexxLA has expanded its mission to include these languages as well. The Association is headquartered at the Research Triangle Park in North Carolina, and its international scope with members throughout the world. Supported by a dedicated group of volunteers, the Rexx Langauge Association provides many benefits for its members.
In addition to a listserver which provides a forum for member discussions and assistance via email, RexxLA now has a website (see Internet - Web Pages). The members-only web pages feature news and articles of interest to Classic Rexx, Object Rexx, and Netrexx users. While currently under construction, there will be sample programs, shareware, reviews of Rexx packages, tips, tricks, and tutorials, as well as a listing of commercial software written using a Rexx language. We also plan to print a newsletter to the best of the webpages, for saving and reference. If you have a Rexx question, RexxLA can provide you with the answer.
RexxLA sponsors the annual Rexx Symposium which features presentations by recognized Rexx experts and practitioners, interesting products, and an opportunity to network and to learn from people who share your enthusiasm for Rexx. All of the major Rexx vendors attend, giving you the opportunity to interact directly with them and provide them with valuable feedback from the field. Usually held in the US, the Symposium was in Heidelberg, Germany this year (1997) to accommodate our many international members. A RexxLA membership also entitles you to a discounted registration fee at the Symposium.
From the very first, the Rexx Language Association has been an active member of the commitee working on an ANSI Standard for REXX. That Standard has been approved, and we are now involved in drafting an ANSI Standard for Object Rexx and NetRexx. Your membership gives you a voice in this very important work.
If you write sophisticated applications in Object Rexx, design Java-enhanced webpages with NetRexx, or simply use Rexx to make your life easier on any platform, the RExx Language Association has much to offer you.
