Is anybody here a member of the ASP? I am wondering if I should join. What has been your experience with them?

I'm a member too, for almost 5 years. Right after joining and gaining access to private area you will probably be thrilled about amount of information you can find there. Note that they are currently in web site redesign so you can't find all of the content that is meant to exist. After initial information boost, things are slowing down a bit, but it's still worth every penny, IMHO. And don't forget to subscribe to newsgroups (NNTP/Usenet) as the real value is in them.

+1 to vradmilovic.

We are a member too in ASP. Two things that are best in ASP - The private newsgroup and great discounts on software developed by its members.

I'm an ASP member for 5 or 6 years now and always liked the private newsgroups with tons of information. I often got new business ideas there...

If you're debating it right now, look at it this way... It's a mere $100 per year. Not a big deal. Drop the $100 and get into the news groups. Get some information and post some questions. At the end of the year, decide if you want to renew. In all likelihood you'll renew.

The free software you get there and the discounts will MORE than pay for the membership in any event.

The thing about the ASP compared to forums like here is that they are private and verified. Not just anyone can join. Consequently you get more open discussions there that you won't see in public forums like this. Developers are more willing to be open when they know that there aren't 'prying eyes' peeking in on them.

You won't be disappointed.

Bump!

Just bumping this to see if anyone that reads this forum is in the ASP. I posted in Living Room, but just in case people don't read there...
