Can't this application go any faster?
Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 at 15h23
What do you do when your customer says that your application is too slow? How can you figure out what's slowing things down? How can you make it faster? Optimization of a VFP application is more than just applying Rushmore correctly, though that's an important step. In this session, we'll explore techniques for measuring performance of a VFP application and look at things you can do to speed it up.

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015 at 12h15
From Southwest Fox: "The countdown clock is ticking! The Super-Saver deadline for Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ 2015 is June 30th, less than a week away. We still need people to register to make the conferences happen. The conferences take place October 15-18, 2015 in Gilbert, Arizona and we really hope you can be there.

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 at 15h51
Smooth-On Inc., with $50 Million annual production recently moved into a much larger facility to accommodate our growth.

A DLL for hardware info (cpu id,hdd id...)
Friday, May 15th, 2015 at 08h12
There is some pure VFP code for get CPU ID but this code works unstable with some computers. Waits until ten minutes sometimes. This .DLL works fast, get IDE serial too also doesn't require regsrv. If just getting HDD serial enough for you that feature is free. If you also want CPU ID too you have to pay a small fee (20€) in the other case you'll annoy with a warning popup.

Inspiring Everyday Practical IntelliSense
Thursday, May 7th, 2015 at 16h41
Microsoft introduced Visual FoxPro's highly extensible IntelliSense capability 14 years ago with the release of Visual FoxPro 7.0. I remember seeing the first live demo of IntelliSense at DevCon and recall the chills it sent up my spine because I knew this new feature would instantly make me more productive. This single VFP feature has been heralded as "the greatest thing since sliced bread" and is, at least in my mind, the single biggest productivity boost to developers. Yet to this day I feel ...
