Hank's Programming Page
Nothing fancy; just some points of view, some perspectives on programming, some reflections on tools. Saves my having to type it again and again on newsgroups/maillists. <s> I spend a lot of time on newsgroups and maillists because that's how I learn: by watching others learn, by searching for answers to other people's programming problems.
Here are the major sections:
Why I develop software in Visual FoxPro. I've collected some of the ideas I've expressed in my newsgroup and e-mail responses and put them here; saves having to say the same thing over again. <s> Basically, I think it's the greatest. <g>
My perspectives on software development. The user is never wrong. The user can, however, make uninformed choices: read Expert, Schmexpert to become informed.<s>
Programming tools. They don't take the place of intelligence, experience, taste, creativity. They let these human qualities find expression. New to this section is a separate page for My Stuff, software development tools I have created: these are what I use to create software, and what those who take my Advanced Training get to use when they develop software.
Hank's Tips.These are tips for using VFP and VPM, including fixes for VPM infelicities, needed until the next update from ProMatrix. These are free for all to use in developing software.
Linux. Linux is not just an operating system: it is a form of development close to the heart of xBase programmers -- community-oriented, openly shared source code. It's a state of mind. And it might be what you are using 3 years from now.
So, no big deal, just life in software development as I experience it. Sort of like this brick wall; it's got a pattern, more or less, but isn't exactly a bunch of neatly drawn lines.
Here are some other neat places to visit. I've learned things by going to these pages and/or gotten some neat tools. Also a link to my psychology page.
