Sunday, September 17, 2006 - Thanks Mike Hogan

Here it is a late Sunday night in Sterling Heights. I worked hard today painting the outside of the White Light Computing World Headquarters and stained some windows. Manual labor that I am not cut out to be doing (I was born to code).

I am suppose to be working on two projects because I am taking tomorrow off. Instead I get distracted and start surfing the Web. I have no real idea how I got here, but I come across I recall reading something about this a while back, but tonight I went through the site.

I really enjoyed reading the different success stories, but I must say I got a big "pick-me-up" when I read Vassilis Aggelakos' post: VFP does Windows. We have sold very few copies of Deploying Visual FoxPro Solutions, but reading how it impacted Vassilis really made my night! It is posts like this and the emails we get on how the book helped a developer makes the 600+ man hours I worked on the book completely worthwhile.

Anyway, a special thanks to Mike Hogan for creating this site!

Hi Rick,
"Deploying Visual FoxPro Solutions" is really a great book.
One of my favorite VFP books actually. Not only It helped me a lot to understand many technical details about Windows installer, InstallShield etc... but the book gives you a higher view of the development process from start to finish and in my case this was a life-rescuer!

It doesn't matter if you have spent 2 or 3 years to implement a system, if you don't know what to expect when you send your cds
miles away in a totally unknown environment.

WITH chapters for MSDE(First VFP book that covers details), legal notes, Decompilation AND many more this book addresses all these factors.

Thank you very much Rick for this book!

You are very welcome Vassilis! It really was a labor of love for the three of us.

I forgot to mention in my previous comment that the cover page (idea-implementation) is brilliant!

P.S: If you look carefully at my previous comment you 'll see the word 'With' in uppercase. I ll never write a comment with VFP's editor! -:)
Thank you Rick!
