Open Source Stack
TurboCASH 4 Open Source
TurboCASH 5 Closed
2018 marks 16 years of TurboCASH as an open source project. In this time open source has changed considerably. It is now big business. Its no longer a couple of geeks get together in a garage and scrape out some code. Hyper ledger for example requests a $250,000 membership fee from its contributors.
The open source future for TurboCASH is micro services and contributing to the key strategic open source projects by downstreaming these technologies to our users.
We have in TurboCASH 4 a stable but aging version that should satisfy the users completely unable to make any kind of purchase or financial contribution. In TurboCASH 5 we have an easily maintainable piece of commercial code with no oppressive external obligations. It is maintained by Philip Copeman, Pieter Valentijn and Danie van Zyl.
Our current advantages are:
Scalabilty; Multi Language; Transaction roll backs; flexible report writer; database speed
Key elements of our 5 year strategy
Make compliance as easy as possible
Enable the users to take advantage of the many cloud services on offer;
Deal with blockchain in an IFRS context

Because of the restrictions of the Classic and the changing nature of Open Source, we propose putting TurboCASH 5 into Maintenance Mode and moving to a open Source Stack based around Microservices and HyperLedger.
This will enable our developers to
Have a much easier Learning Curve
Work on smaller manageable projects
Have minimal licencing costs for the Dev Stack
Leverage the dominant Cloud technologies
