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.
