Hi Kevin

I don't want you to "waste" any more time. But could you give a very
quick
comment on how QNX feels about the "consultants" that ever big company
hires
to get started on QNX?

Search Google for "QNX consultant", and you'll get the names of
two people, Robert Krten and Mario Charest, both of whom
post here. There's also Mitchell Schoenbrun. If you want
to outsource to India, there's SPA Computers. There's
SterlingTech in New Jersey for medical devices. That seems
to be about it.


They are other places but I think they are specialing in some area, instead
of specialising in QNX itself. Which is probably a smart move ;-) I'm
slowy working on backup plan myself ;)

Excellent. I'm hoping Mario will give up soon and I'll get both
of the contracts that spring up yearly instead of just the one :-)

Darn, I was counting on you retiring.

(Mitch is teaching highschool and doesn't actively consult AFAIK).

Yep that's the last I heard as well.

Cheers,

I'm afraid Google is woefully uninformed. I can think of at least 6 other
people, myself included.

I'd put on my "capitalist asshole" hat and change that to "wonderfully uninformed";
an inability of other people to figure out how to get on Google's search system
so that when someone looks for "QNX consultant" has got to be an advantage for
me (and Mario, until he retires. I heard that was going to be really soon now :-) :-))

In any event, the pool of both consultants and available work is extremely small.
