NEWS HEADING: Special Event at the Amiga99 show
( Bill Panagouleas of DiscreetFX
trains Amiga developers how to enter the lucrative market of porting
popular Windows, SGI & Mac applications to the Amiga.

The Amiga has some very powerful software available for it at very
affordable prices. Feature rich applications like ImageFX, Wildfire,
Video Toaster/Flyer, Pagestream 4.0, Photogenics NG,  Fantastic Dreams,
AmiIRC etc. help define what an Amiga is and provide modern software for
Amiga customers. The Amiga does not have the wide breath of software
applications available on other platforms though. This is a double edged
sword, on one hand the Amiga gets the benefit of avoiding bloated over
hyped but bug ridden and under powered software. But on the other hand
many popular and mainstream applications that customers demand when they
buy their computer are not available for the Amiga. Products like
Quicken, Quickbooks Pro, ACT, Dragon Naturally Speaking, and most
educational software titles don't make it to the Amiga. Also many of the
high-end SGI applications which are well suited for the PowerPC Amiga &
NG Amiga are not available for it. Unknown to the Amiga community is the
fact that many successful developers for other platforms are on the
lookout for new operating systems and computers to port there well know
applications to. They lack the knowledge and Amiga background to port
their software but are willing to subcontract Amiga developers to do it
for them. With other top selling operating systems now becoming very
controversial and falling out of favor now is the time to approach these

 Bill Panagouleas brings his past experience at negotiating deals and
managing these types of porting projects to the Amiga Development
Community to help them. Learn how to stop being a starving Amiga
developer and instead become a wealthy one by bringing popular best
selling programs to your favorite machine. Also you will be helping the
Amiga become more widespread and popular by making the software many
know and love available for Amiga. The aMozillaX project
"" (Netscape Communicator for Amiga )
has already shown how just getting one popular application ported can
raise the bar on Amiga converge in the mainstream press.  Everyone knows
that popular software drives hardware sales. Don't miss out on this very
special event if you are attending the Amiga 99 show and happy porting.
