Posted on March 26, 2007. Filed under: Visual FoxPro |

Here’s some interesting stats from the OzFox networking session.

At the networking session there were 40 or so attendees (plus the speakers). I have not included the speakers in the results below.

I asked the following questions about VFP developer ‘behaviour’:

How many people attend User Groups (VFP or other): 21 (ie ~50%)
How many read blogs (VFP or other): 23 (ie >50%)
How many write blogs: 10 (ie 25%)

How many are using the following versions of FoxPro:
VFP9: most people (approx 35)
VFP8: 4
VFP7: 3
VFP6: 7
VFP5: 3
FPW: 5
FPD: 1

How many have products or projects that use SQL Server as the backend: 10

VFP: Message from YAG about VFP

Posted on March 14, 2007. Filed under: Visual FoxPro |

Much to be said about this in the coming weeks, but for now I think he has given us a good summary and clear direction.

http://blogs.msdn.com/yag/archive/2007/03/13/message-to-the-vfp-community.aspx

Plenty to discuss – I’ll be posting about this in a week or so once I have collected all my thoughts…

btw YAG, thank you for all the hard work you and the team have done lately. I have such high respect for you. I wouldn’t like to be in your shoes at the moment 🙂

PERSONAL: Sleepy in seattle

Posted on March 11, 2007. Filed under: Visual FoxPro |

After a very comfortable and hassle free flight I’ve made it to my hotel in Seattle (I’m here for the MVP Summit starting on Monday).

I spent a few hours wandering around downtown: checking out the Pike Place Markets (as you do) and then trying in vain to find a coffee place {g}. After searching high and low for a Starbucks I was only able to find 37 of them within an hour!

Some photos (and video of the famous Pike Place Fish Market) are here:
