    I loved this VB6/VB.NET article (by yag)

    • 2 Comments
    Although it was written as a response to an article by Richard Grimes , I like this blog entry because of how it describes the movement and *feeling* of going from VB6 to VB.NET. Scott captures it really well - probably because he's working in both at...

    • 0 Comments
    Sometimes I feel like I'm repeating what others have already written about .Net from the VFP perspective. To those authors who have written extensively on the subject, notably Kevin McNeish, Cathi Gero, and Les Pinter, I apologize for any overlap. Hint...

    Stability: VFP8 versus VFP9 (by John Koziol)

    • 7 Comments
    I've gotten some emails from old friends and VFP developers where the sender is asking me which version is best to upgrade a legacy application. Some folks are worried that the "newness" of VFP9 may make it a less stable upgrade whereas VFP8 has had a...

    Exploring VB .Net from a VFP Perspective (Part II) (by John Koziol)

    • 4 Comments
    Sheesh. Some of the feedback I'm getting on this series makes me feel like a traitor to the Visual FoxPro community. Nothing could be further from the truth; I love the VFP community and I am a staunch supporter of VFP and have been for many years. I...

    John Koziol - one of the testers on my team - posted an entry in which he began to discuss some of the things he's learning as he dives in VB.NET. We've gotten a number of responses - which are of two forms: You're just trying to force VB on us Fox folks...

    • 12 Comments
    This is the first in a series of posts on VB. Net observations. It's not formal; it's just an online journal of things I found cool and weird coming from a VFP developer with 20 years of database language experience. One of my tasks this past several...

    Last week, our Test Manager, Cameron, posted an entry about what it means to be a tester. Today, Santosh from the C# team posted an awesome entry about what it *feels* like to be a tester. Thanks, Santosh - it was a great ride...
