Yup that’s right, I am still using Visual Foxpro right now despite it is announced by Microsoft almost a year ago that they will stop developing the next version for this programming language. I just can’t get rid of this VFP on my system because the coding system and semantics of this tool is still running in my blood. I am teaching right now Visual Basic.Net 2008 but my system refuses to use this one for developing information systems that I need to build. Now, I am studying my MSCS and I need to decide which tool that I should use for the development. Is it Visual Foxpro that I am fond of using and really have a “sentimental” value for me or is it Visual Basic.NET because that is the future right now?
My answer, well I will continue on using Visual Foxpro! Then, I will enhance my knowledge in PHP and MySQL because I already started using it and I find it easy to implement. For the meantime, I will not say goodbye to Visual Foxpro and I decided that if in case I will shift to another language and focus on it, I will choose the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL & PHP) group or WAMP (Windows, Apache, MySQL, PHP).
Programming language I know since I become a Filipino Programmer from the oldest to the newest language: C Language, Assembly, Visual Foxpro, Perl (but that was a long time ago, year 2000 I guess), Visual Basic 6 to Visual Basic.NET and then PHP.
