Thanks to Craig for monitoring for this.
Advisor has announced the next VFP DevCon to be held Sept. 29 – Oct 2 in Las Vegas. No announcement of the hotel. I think Vegas is a great location. I can drive there in about six hours. The hotels are cheap, food is cheap, rooms are cheap, airfare for others is cheap. Kudos to Advisor!
On a related note, Ken Levy has publically hinted that DevCon will be the official launch for VFP9. Let’s look at the calendar and see how accurate this could be for release dates. VFP 8 was released in February. Typically, VFP has been on an 18 month schedule. That would put release at sometime around July. Ken also recently stated on the Universal Thread that the Fox team added three months to the schedule to allow for additional testing and QA. Now we’re looking at October. The dates look about right to me for release about the same time as DevCon.”
I would have posted Craig’s original posting, but the links to his blog are still broken in his RSS feed, and I couldn’t figure out a way to permalink to his posting.
Looks like if you’re planning to go to the FoxPro DevCon, you could go a few days earlier and see what Novell is up to at Advisor’s Novell DevCon, too.
