Rick Borup has been working in the FoxPro community for years. In recent years, he has shown Mercurial as his version control system of choice but at this year's Southwest Fox, he'll be showing how developers can take advantage of Git.

He's also got a new tool under his belt - a little database that makes sense for FoxPro developers who are looking for a fast and easy (and portable) DB.

Listen in and see how Rick got involved in the community and also how these tools may make your world a bit easier.

After so many years, XBASE is coming to DotNet!!! Note that I said xBase and not VFP. The xSharp project is an initiative for all xBase devotees, supporting Visual object, clipper and VFP syntax. 

I talk with project founder Robert van Der Hulst about how he got into the industry, and the how's and why's of the xSharp project.

Find out more at http://www.xsharp.info.

Two members of the xSharp team will be at this year's Southwest Conference.

A wide-ranging discussion with Tamar Granor, one of the organizers of Southwest Fox 2019, about women in tech, different ways of sharing information and how to go from wallflower to presenter.

The first deadline for Southwest Fox 2019 is coming up on July 1st and Tamar gives several great reasons to attend, including ways she has learned new ideas that have become part of her own arsenal of tech tools.

She also tells of her own history with programming at Penn State, introduction to the online world and the gender bias in technology.

Doug Hennig talks about his start in the computer industry from Commodore Pet and how much FoxPro development he does today. He's also excited about the Southwest Fox conference and what he's learned from past conferences and the real reasons people should attend (hint, it's not just the sessions).
