As Director of Marketing Communications at Maplesoft, I am responsible for content creation, including case studies, whitepapers, webinars, technical papers, articles, and videos; public relations; all direct marketing programs in North America including emails, direct mails, and advertising programs; international marketing; tradeshows and conferences; sponsorships and partnerships; and print materials including brochures, flyers, posters, etc. I was born in the driveway of a country house that my dad bought because it had beautiful lilac trees in the front yard. It also had no electricity and no running water. This is where I spent my formative years. I've been told that explains a lot. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in English from York University, a college diploma in Business Marketing from Georgian College, and I am currently completing a MAIS at Athabasca University in Writing and New Media, and Literary Studies. I’ve worked as a marketer in the high-tech industry for all of my professional career. In 2001 I won the City of Owen Sound Economic Development Award for Outstanding Sales Promotion. I put a lot of words like "Buy Now!" "Learn More!" and "Save!" in my writing. I like exclamation points.

While there are going to be some metrics affected by spam, as would be typical of any forum like this, the general trends are accurate, and our trends indicate participation levels that are increasing, not declining. The point of my post above was really to demonstrate that you are most definitely reaching new users, and the content you provide is viewed by thousands of people over many years, which is something I thought everyone would like to know.

Yes, the reference he refers to is an older publication. This student does however use the most recent version of Maple. It seems that as a result of his enjoyment of Maple, he researched its history and came across this publication. For someone wanting to learn Maple procedures, this publication, although dated, is still a good resource. We have however pointed him to a more recent publication, i.e the Maple Programming Guide, available in our Documentation Center.
