Is Lianja the next best tool for FoxPro developers looking to leverage their knowledge in the world of desktop, mobile and web applications?

In this show, we talk to Barry Mavin, the creator of Lianja and Hank Fay, a long-time FoxPro developer who is looking very hard at Lianja for line of business applications.

As a note, attendees of Southwest Fox 2012 will be receiving a Standard edition of Lianja!

Note: This episode features a slightly different style of production that I've been listening to on 99% Invisible, a great podcast by Roman Mars. It's not exactly the same but when listening to early cuts of this episode, I found it really worked well. Let me know what you think.

Welcome back to the FoxShow! 

Today we feature an interview with Uwe Habermann about his upcoming Southwest Fox sessions on how to integrate FoxPro and Silverlight. Uwe and his team have been working on tools to migrate a FoxPro application (including forms AND reports) into Silverlight, using COM servers and also some C#. Part of this involves the Visual Extend framework but will also work with non-VFX projects.

We always enjoy the feedback - so please send it to foxshow@gmail.com or Skype at akselsoft.

When speaking about VFPx at last year's Southwest Fox conference, it became evident that there aren't a lot of avenues for finding out how to use various pieces of VFPx. So I'm creating videos designed to showcase VFPx components, starting with the Control Renamer.

If you have ever wanted to rename a control in a class or form but were hesitant because of missing other code references, the Control Renamer is definitely a tool you want to try.

Now, there are lots of areas where new options can be added into this tool - but they are primarily "extras" like setting color settings or some logging.

Check it out below!

We talked about a number of things including what he's been doing since he left Microsoft, the new CodeCast podcast that he is doing with EPS, APPScanX - a new VFP tool for helping to scan projects and code for specific elements and what he feels his contribution has been to the FoxPro community.

From Southwest Fox 2008 in Mesa Arizona, here is the audio from my Profiling and Refactoring session. In it, we discuss what refactoring is and what it isn't and how the VFPX Code Analyst helps make refactoring easier in Visual FoxPro. We also discuss how to best use the Log file generated from the VFP Coverage Profiler.

I didn't want to do a full show on this little interview but wanted to put it into the stream because I think it's really valuable for developers to hear. It's a discussion Alan Stevens and I had one morning at Southwest Fox 2008. It was held after his talk on Agile and I had some specific questions we wanted to get into. There is some background noise as we were talking outside at the breakfast table. If you've never heard Alan speak, this is a great way of getting a feel for his sessions. Enjoy!

At SWFox, there are a number of great sessions going on, most of which have the "please do not record or tape" - however, some, like this one, were open for all and everyone was told "you are on the Internet".

This show is the entirety of the VFPX Meeting session - a session hosted by Craig Boyd, Bo Durban, Rick Schummer and myself about how the community can get better involved with VFPX itself and some other suggestions at the type of things the community wants to see.

Audio is a conference room is tough - but I've tried to increase it where needed so you can hear the people in the back row.

Welcome back to the FoxShow! We've been offline for quite some time (last one was June 2006) but we're back and aiming to hit a new show at least once a month.

This particular show is a screencast of a cool new way for building web applications using FoxPro! (format is WMV - let me know if you prefer it in other formats)

The audio may be a little off
I'll be following this up with a regular podcast that includes part of the interview along with some other news items from the FoxPro community.

More info is available <a href='http://www.foxforward.net">here</a>.

The conference looks really good with a wide variety of sessions covering basic development techniques, Ajax and FoxPro, GDI+ along with some real "case study" type sessions on FoxPro and Wireless from John Harvey at the Shelby Co. Sheriff's office and Bill Sanders filling everyone in on how CollegeCon is going ( the VFP Intern project).

Note: the audio may sound a bit strange in this show as I'm testing out a new device called RapidVoip and am not so sure on it - but would LOVE to hear your feedback.
Also to note that while this show didn't really follow a set format - newer shows will. I just have to get back on top with some new sounds, formats and more.

FoxShow #35: An Interview with the legal side of John Petersen Sorry for the late show but I've been editing interviews. Rather than make an extra long show, Episode #35 features a part of my interview with John Petersen (YES! that JVP) about legal issues that developers need to be aware of.

The interview takes up most of the show (save for the opening and the ad) - he identifies very valuable issues for Visual FoxPro and other developers to be aware of.

Dabo Part 1: The AppWizard I posted this on my own blog but I also wanted to make sure that if you wanted to take a peek at Dabo, the open-source database development environment written by VFPer's Ed Leafe and Paul McNett, you could see some of it here. It uses Python and MySQL. The video is in Windows Media format - not exactly multi-platform ready - if you're on a new iPod, let me know and I'll put up a Quicktime version. There's a lot more to it - but it's taking me forever to get this out of the hour long overview Ed gave me. The other pieces will be coming shortly. We'll be talking to them soon on the FoxShow as well - so if you have questions, shoot them my way and I'll be sure to ask when we do it.

One of the goals I've had for a long time is to try and keep the show under 30 minutes - ideally around twenty. As listeners know, this is incredibly difficult with interviews that typically last that long. So what do you think? Should I separate interviews into their own "show" ( a la BuzzOutLoud model) and thus keep the shows down in length or keep them all in one big show. It may really depend on your player. For example, when I use the Creative Muvo, it keeps track of where I am with each show and thus when I stop and restart, it picks up right where I left off. Other devices may not be so lucky. Let me know. Take My Poll

Hey everyone. As you may know, Craig and Scott from Australia have their own Podcast with OzFoxRocks. They are still waiting for their server to have more bandwidth so in the meantime, here's a direct link to a mirror site which is much faster. (note: this isn't linked as a regular FoxShow so that stats aren't skewed - but the premier OzFoxRocks show is a great one) Enjoy!

Craig and Scott from the Australia Fox community put together a great beta (er alpha) tool in FoxTabs. I wasn't able to get to the latest video so I thought I would do up a quick screen cast (in Windows Media format) so you could have it yourself. It's a lot smaller than the other shows. If you would like to see more of these or maybe think they should be available under a separate account, please send me some feedback to foxshow@gmail.com Thanks!

    The FoxShow is typically about 30 minutes long and we try to get it out weekly although it was two weeks from the last one but Eric's last comment got me thinking. Obviously shows that have a single theme (like the one on MSF will be longer) but for a show like FoxShow #15 which covered a variety of things:
    FoxShow Podcast
    What is the ideal length for the FoxShow?
    One 30 minute show

    FoxPro Podcast #1 - random thoughts on the industry, including the rants of the Visual Basic revolt, some interesting Visual FoxPro sites including the fox.wikis.com web site and their topic on what they would like to see in VFP 10.



    (updated note: the audio didn't seem to come through on this so there's an open space at the end of this show)



    Here are some of the links mentioned:


    VB MVPs Revolt



    Rick Strahl's Weblog



    Microsoft Presspass News Release:



    Also in this is a note about my How Do You Use FoxPro survey available from my regular blog at http://akselsoft.blogspot.com.



    My first attempt - put some background music on and the mic quality may not be all that good but this is a start of what will be many podcasts and possibly even Vlogcasts on FoxPro and other topics.
