    VFP 9.0 release date

    • 11 Comments

    This morning, in the OzFox keynote, Ken Levy stated that the release date for VFP 9.0 is scheduled for December 15. I'm not sure if this is new news (it didn't sound like it when Ken announced it), but it's the first time I've heard a public release date.

    If you want to be able to get your hands on VFP as soon as it's released, you'll need to be an MSDN subscriber. It usually takes about 6 weeks after RTM for the full packaged product to hit the shelves.

    OzFox Starts Tomorrow!

    • 0 Comments

    I'm very excited. OzFox, organised by Craig Bailey, starts in Coogee tomorrow. There's a stellar line-up of speakers, some sensational sessions and even an X-Box room to help folks unwind.

    I'm really looking forward to the keynote and hearing Ken Levy talk about VFP 9.0.

    64-bit Webcast Week

    • 0 Comments

    November 1-5 is 64-bit Webcast Week! There are 13 hour-and-a-half-long sessions on lots of different aspects of 64-bit development. Here's the complete list (all times are in US Pacific time (UTC - 8) - for Eastern Australian time just subtract 5 hours and add a day (ie they are 19 hours behind - daylight savings will have kicked in), so the first session is 4-5:30am Tuesday Sydney time. For the rest of you (like the Banana Benders), you'll have to do your own maths :).

    These sessions (except for the first one) are all billed as being deep technical detail (level 300 is getting there, and level 400 is deep, hardcore technical)

    Enjoy

    Building Windows Forms Webcasts.

    • 5 Comments

    I've been on leave for a couple of weeks, so I missed the start of these webcasts. To be perfectly honest though, I'll probably watch the on-demand versions anyway. I'm not really a 4am kind of person. I think this gets 2 hours better at the end of this month with the advent of daylight time here and it finishing there (6am to 7am). If only I could watch them at the gym.

    The blurb from the landing page says:

    Tune in and learn how to build Microsoft Windows Forms applications and Smart Clients in Microsoft .NET. We will take you through all the steps to build an application, as we cover object oriented concepts and delve deep into .NET. During this series of webcasts, you will learn how to create rich user interfaces, access data, and see industry-proven ways to get Windows Forms applications to market quickly. And after viewing the webcasts, you can work hands-on in the MSDN Virtual Lab.

    I wrote a bunch of articles for FoxTalk a while ago, some of them even made it into the MSDN library. I've also posted them all up at my personal site in case you're interested.
