  • Blog Post: XML Visualizer for VS2003 (by yag)

    One of my favorite features coming in VS2005 is debugger visualizers . They allow you to easily add a type-specific form based visualization while debugging.

  • Blog Post: I loved this VB6/VB.NET article (by yag)

    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 the moment. Update: Noticed a number of other blog...
  • Blog Post: Exploring VB .Net from a VFP Perspective (Part III) (by John Koziol)

    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 to readers: While I can't endorse third-party products...

  • Blog Post: Stability: VFP8 versus VFP9 (by John Koziol)

    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.

    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 weeks was to transfer product tests from a VFP application...
  • Blog Post: What does it mean to be a tester? (by Cameron Slade)

    There is quite a bit of ambiguity, both within the software business and outside of it, about what it means to be a software tester. I can’t count how many times I have been at a party and told someone outside of Microsoft what I do only to get a bewildered look. On the other hand most people know or...

    Duncan has a blog entry reminiscing about FoxPro . I had no idea that he was an old Fox guy also. It constantly amazes me how many of the folks in Microsoft and the VB team have worked with VFP.
