Learning Edition

Post by IlkerS » Sat Apr 06, 2013 9:26 pm

Hello guys,

I wanted to inspire a new Edition Kind that differs from the free Trial Versions of your products in that it is also cost free and allows usage for unlimited time but has significant drawbacks in usage so it cannot be used for everything. I would call it the "Learning Edition" because I imagine a Version to download that makes me capable of trying everything in the tutorial using the KeePass program but the drawback would be that it will only work with KeePass and nothing else. This would enable me to learn your Software in a more expanded time than the month of the free Trial Version and also to repeat learning steps some time later. Why I got this idea? Well:

I am an IT freelancer that does not know what to expect with a new Job and therefore I would like to learn some techniques as qualifications to tell a possible new employer, e.g., that I can do GUI test automations with Ranorex and possibly to animate the employer to install Ranorex for GUI test automations if he did not use Ranorex before.

So what do you think about this?

Hi,

I doubt this would work either for you or for Ranorex. If it would be unlimited in time but feature crippled, you will never learn it properly, because of the limitations. I guess the limitations that would be acceptable for you, would never work for Ranorex ;) But I can tell you, from my own experience, that Ranorex folks are very sensible and willing to extend the trial period. Just ask them.

Thank you for your posting odklizec. I have in mind that the Limitation in using the "Learning Edition" would be that Ranorex operates only on KeePass for learning purposes. This will limit none of the Features for the application to learn with (KeePass) but Ranorex would be rendered useless for every other application. I think this would be a good way to learn a new Software without always having to keep an eye on the expiration date of the trial period but having the ability to learn all available Features when I have time for it.
