VFUG Meeting: Wednesday, September 20, 2006
Topic: Tips & Techniques - David Fung and Sam Robbins

David Fung's topic is "Don't Repeat Yourself" - don't write duplicate code. He will use "highlight on entry" as an example to demonstrate this principle, first implemented with inheritance and then with a behaviour object.

Sam Robbins will review some of the issues raised at last April's Great Lakes Great Database Workshop (GLGDW) conference - some of which were controversial.

David Fung is doing business under the name of AMG Computing, a custom software development and consulting firm in Port Moody, BC. He specializes in extending legacy systems with modern technology to meet new business needs. He has designed and developed numerous desktop and web-based database applications for businesses in different industries and in different countries.

Sam Robbins is Manager, MIS of B.C. Rapid Transit Co. Ltd., operator of the Vancouver metropolitan area SkyTrain rapid transit system. SkyTrain uses VFP extensively in its operations, and is one of the largest VFP users in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
