What's new in the Visual FoxPro Community

West Wind Technologies has released an update to the Web Service Proxy Generator, which automates the process for creating FoxPro clients to complex SOAP 1.x Web Services. The tool makes calling Web Services as easy as calling methods on a generated FoxPro proxy class. This release adds updated WSDL parser that handles a few additional edge cases for parsing multii-segmentedlinked WSDL files. There are also a host of updates for wwDotnetBridge to facilitate interaction with many more new .NET types including, long, char, byte, Single, DbNull and more. The Proxy Generator is available as shareware and registered users can simply re-download the registered version for a free update.

The next meeting of the Philadelphia Visual FoxPro User Group will be Tuesday, July 14 at 7:00 PM in room 104, DeVry University, 1140 Virginia Drive, Fort Washington, PA. Feel free to come as early as 6:30 and bring some dinner. Tamar E. Granor will do a Southwest Fox preview of her session ?Can?t this application go any faster?? Abstract: What do you do when your customer says that your application is too slow? How can you figure out what's slowing things down? How can you make it faster? Optimization of a VFP application is more than just applying Rushmore correctly, though that's an important step. In this session, we'll explore techniques for measuring performance of a VFP application and look at things you can do to speed it up.

We're delighted to tell you that we met and made the decision to move forward with this year's conferences. Registrations to date are almost identical to last year's on the same date, giving us confidence that the conferences remain financially feasible. We're also happy to tell you that we've added Rick Borup to the speaker list. Thanks to those who have registered so far. We really appreciate it. That said, we still need your help to pull this off. Gather, share, learn, expand your knowledge in Gilbert.

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.
