For those of you around the globe who have never heard of DAFUG, we suggest you click the "Who is DAFUG?" menu selection at left. This website exists predominantly to serve the needs of Detroit's own neighborhood DAFUG members. However, one of the most common and pressing needs of DAFUG members is to interact with the world wide community of Visual FoxPro, and FoxPro (DOS and Windows) developers. Your presence and input in this site is welcomed and appreciated.

Our next meeting will take place:

October 12, 2017  

1) Putting the Pieces Together for Web Development By Toni Feltman of Quicken Loans [A Southwest Fox rehearsal]

Up until recently I just didn't "get" how all pieces fit together when it came to Web Development. I knew and understood the basic fundamentals like HTML, CSS, Javascript, ASP.NET, and so on. What I never could fully grasp was how the pieces should be assembled. I read articles, watched videos, and even deployed a web site built upon a simple web framework that someone else wrote. I still couldn't make sense of it after following the step-by-step directions. It was not until I began to match up web techniques and components with things I had done in Visual FoxPro that I really started to understand.

This session will take you on a journey building parallel systems (a simple one) using both FoxPro and web technologies so that you can better understand how to build web applications using common architecture.

You will learn:

  • Basic web terminology and how it relates to Visual FoxPro terms
  • Using layers appropriately for various application types (Web Terminology = Layers)
  • How to quickly and easily build simple web applications using your Visual FoxPro experience
  • To understand how the web pieces fit together and should be assembled

2) Anything else people want to talk about.
