Using Visual FoxPro


I read Andrew MacNeill’s article from last year again.

I think he’s right on a lot of points. VFP is great for some applications, but not for everything. Most IT Managers I speak to want to know our .Net strategy (we have a strong .Net strategy on the web side, but if its desktop database apps then VFP is still the tool of choice) but at the end of the day they just want the job done well, priced competitively and with a secure future enhancement roadmap. If they desperately want a .Net app then we’ll do that, but we have considerable expertise in VFP, so while it continues to do the job well, we’ll continue with it.

You’ll have seen my earlier post on getting the job finished – it won’t matter what tool we use if we can’t get the project completed!
