Tuesday, June 14: Bill Fitzgerald: "A VFP programmer looks at .NET – again”

Our next meeting will be Tuesday, June 14 at 7 PM in room 128 at DeVry University, 1140 Virginia Drive, Fort Washington, PA. Feel free to come as early as 6:30 PM and bring some dinner. However, because the room is a computer lab, food and drink are not permitted. So, we’ll meet for dinner in the seating area in the far hallway and move to the meeting room at 7.

Member Bill Fitzgerald will present “A VFP programmer looks at .NET – again”

Abstract: Since  I first started using C# .NET  in 2005 both the platform and the way I use it have evolved in several important ways. I’ll walk through three existing production .NET/SQL Server data processing applications which I wrote over a period of ten years and show how the language and the techniques I use with it have changed.

Finally, I’ll show my first attempt at using the recently-released multi-platform .NET core.
