July 14: Menachem Bazian presents "SQL in Many Forms"

Let the Southwest Fox rehearsals begin.

The next meeting of the Philadelphia VFP User Group is Tuesday, July 14 at 7 PM at Valley Forge Pension Management, 715 Twining Road, Suite 202, Dresher, PA 19025. There is a $5 fee for the meeting.

Our speaker will be Menachem Bazian, CPA, CITP and President and Founder of BC Consulting Services, Inc, a Business Management and Technology Consulting Firm based in northern NJ. Menachem has been a database developer for over 20 years, having starting out with Dbase II and moved on to Dbase III, Clipper, Foxbase and all the versions of Visual FoxPro to date. He returned to the Fox speaking circuit last year including Southwest Fox 2008. He has published numerous articles and books over the years.

He'll present a preview of his Southwest Fox session "SQL in Many Forms": SQL is the lingua franca of data. Introduced into FoxPro way back in 2.0, VFP developers have been using it in applications for years. With the growing popularity of using Client Server back ends, it is necessary to know the differences between the various favors of SQL you will encounter. The session concentrates on VFP, MySQL, and Microsoft SQL Server flavors of SQL.

Mark your calendars for two more Southwest Fox rehearsals:

August 11--Tamar Granor presents "Top 10 (or more) reasons to use the Toolbox."

September 8--Toni Feltman presents "Introduction to Subversion and Tortoise SVN."
