From the VFP 6.0 book:

You've been through a couple of intro books, perhaps worked with the samples some. Maybe even struggled through a small application. Now it's time for a pair of industry veterans to guide you through industrial strength application development. Visual FoxPro provides more different ways of doing things than any 5 other development products put together. Deciding which features and techniques are appropriate for a particular situation isnít always obvious. Let Jim and Steve share with you the insights acquired through a combined 7 years of experience with Visual FoxPro.

Updated for VFP 9.0:

When I was contacted and asked to update this book for the latest version of Visual FoxPro I thought about a number of new possibilities that could be included in the revision. Originally we wanted this book to be more than simply a programmerís guide to Visual FoxPro. We wanted it to contain the types of information that one only gets through experience, through actually using Visual FoxPro to build applications. We also wanted the lessons in this book to be applicable to other development languages besides Visual FoxPro. In planning and writing the revision I have tried very hard to keep with that original plan. Although there is a lot of Visual FoxPro specific information in the book, there are also discussions that transcend any particular development tool or language.

Interestingly much of the original content of the book remains here as it was, simply updated for syntax changes or new commands that reduce the code size. I have to give thanks to a number of people who were very helpful in getting this project to its completion. First I thank Marcia Akins for her contribution of the chapter covering the report writer. Next I thank Laurie Darth for her excellent copy editing (any errors in the final text are purely mine). Iíd like to thank Rainer Becker and his entire team at dFPUG c/o ISYS GmbH for their hard work and full support especially Tina Flieher-Ojen. I may be the author listed on the cover but all of these people have had a critical role in this book being completed.
