Doug’s written up some of the sessions he’s looking forward to and I have to say the sessions announced for Southwest Fox cover a wide gamut for the FoxPro (and xBase++) developer. (full disclosure: I’m speaking so I’m excited about that too)
Like Doug, I’m very excited about Eric Selje’s Will the Circle Be Unbroken: Continuous Integration and VFP
When VFPX first came about, Alan Stevens had done some work on an MS Build target for VFP. This never really took off which was too bad. Continuous Integration is so wonderful that once you have it, you will wonder why you didn’t do it earlier. It’s a great way for ensuring you compile, teaching your team, identifying conflicts and just feeling good about your approach. We’re using it extensively at one of my clients and it really has helped identify the culprits (gulp!) who break code.
Hope to see you there
