Expect these coming your way

What I have found when it comes to making a FoxPro to .NET conversion is that it is not something that should be done with the touch of a button. Converting an application requires preparation, determination, and resources. The good news is this: you can take control of the process, use tools to drastically reduce the effort required, and get help in the form of training and staff augmentation.

When making a FoxPro to .NET conversion the idea is to end up with a better application than you’re original. After all, there are always those things that, looking back, we would have done differently, and a conversion can be an opportunity to tackle those things.

Managing a large application like a FoxPro to .NET conversion can be devastating but, if you have a strategy to begin your task in a reasonable and approachable manner it will make for a smoother conversion.

From the research we have gathered one can do it in the house, but first, here are a few things to think about. Your staff will likely need training for: – Conversion – To Maintain – And Enhancement for the application in the future. Net and SQL services are being promoted going forward while support for Visual FoxPro is ending soon. A FoxPro to .NET conversion is a process that requires skilled professionals to make sure the transition is done correctly. Who will guide you to make the transition seamless? There are few guarantees in this world and a FoxPro to .NET conversion is one of them, why not start today. When looking for a partner positioned to accomplish this conversion, look for an excellent team of developers experienced in both FoxPro and .NET environment. A company that has a long list of clients for whom they have developed and supported FoxPro, Visual FoxPro, dBase and Visual dBase applications is a necessity.
