Cathy has thrown her hat into the blog world. Check it out at www.cathypountney.blogspot.com.
The Making Sense of Sedna and SP2 is available from Hentzenwerke Publishing. What is this book about? What is Sedna? What is Service Pack 2? When Microsoft released Visual FoxPro 9.0 at the end of 2004, they began asking the Fox community what enhancements would warrant development of a VFP 10. In particular, they were looking for so-called "back of the box" features, things that would be selling points for a new version. Sedna and SP2 is Microsoft's answer and this book covers all the new features, bug fixes, as well as updates to some of hte Xbase tools that come with VFP.
The Visual FoxPro Report Writer: Pushing it to the Limit and Beyond is available from Hentzenwerke Publishing. The Visual FoxPro Report Writer is a power tool as long as you know how to use it. This in depth book teaches you how to master the VFP Report Writer.
I have two articles available on the MSDN website.
- What's New in the VFP 9.0 Report Writer (August 2004)
- The VFP 9.0 Report Writer In Action (August 2004)
FoxPro User Groups
User Groups are a great resource for networking with local FoxPro developers. Support your local user group by attending, presenting, and promoting!
Over the years, Cathy has been the President, Vice-President, Secretary and Webmaster of the Grand Rapids Area FoxPro Users Group (GRAFUG). We meet the second Saturday of each month to discuss all kinds of FoxPro and programming related topics. Everyone is welcome so please join us. www.grafug.com.
Other FoxPro User Groups
- Chicago FoxPro Users and Developers Group
- Detroit Area Fox User Group (DAFUG)
- Los Angeles Area FoxPro Developers Group (LA Fox)
Conferences are a great way to learn about FoxPro and network with other FoxPro developers. I can't say enough about how important the networking aspect is when you attend a conference. It's well worth the money!
