What's new in the Visual FoxPro Community

After an extensive beta we've finally released version 2.0 of West Wind Globalization. This library provides database resources to .NET applications with support for a data-driven ResourceManager and ResourceProvider and support for SQL Server, MySql and SqLite. There's also a very rich interactive Web Resource Editor that makes it easy to work with and edit resources quickly. Additional features include several mechanisms for getting resources into any kind of .NET application, a JavaScript ResourceHandler that can serve server side resources to client applications and Markdown support for Resources. Westwind.Globalization is an open source project avalable on Github.

The countdown clock at Geek Gatherings is getting closer to the Super-saver deadline for Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++! June 30th is a little less than a week away and we thought we would pass along a reminder just in case you forgot to type it into your task list, or put a yellow sticky note on your monitor. We still need people to register to make the conferences happen. The conferences take place October 15-18, 2015 in Gilbert, Arizona and we really hope you can be there. We would hate to see you miss out on the $125 discount, the FREE pre-conference session, and an opportunity to win a scholarship or a license of Stonefield Query SDK (a $6,000 value). Head over to the registration Web site today:

Come join us in Arizona in October, prior to the Southwest Fox conference for two days of intense Web development training for West Wind Web Connection. We'll introduce a new version of West Wind Web Connection 6.0 this year and walk through the creation of an application using the new scripting features of the new version on day one. Day two is dedicated to building client centric and mobile aware Web applications using JavaScript with AngularJs and using FoxPro as a service backend to create rich and interactive Web applications. In the process you'll learn about development tips and tricks for using HTML, CSS and JavaScript and the process of building modern Web applications.

Andrew MacNeill posted the latest version of the FoxShow featuring an interview about Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ 2015 with the three organizers:

We've opened registration for the Southwest Fox/Xbase++ 2015 conferences. Super-Saver Registration, which saves you $125, is available only through June 30th, so don't wait.
