Thursday 20th March
I gave the night out in Broad Street a miss because I had a 9am meeting the following day that I needed to be sharp for
A client has a Visual Foxpro system that basically runs the main function of their business (I wrote it in a previous life about six or seven years ago)
They are concerned about the lack of support for Foxpro going forward and also recognise the software doesn’t quite fit as it used to so are interested in a having a new system created. I spent most of the day there going through requirements and creating a “wish list” about what they would like to do. I’ll more than likely be calling on a local partner to help with this as development isn’t my strong point anymore (if it ever was!)
I first met Susanne in person in August last year and in that short time since it’s been easy to see why she’s such a respected member of the community. She’s been nothing but helpful to me when I’ve needed it, her blog is still one of the first I look out for everyday and her enthusiasm should be an inspiration to us all. I’d like to put on record my thanks and to wish her all the best in whatever she does next. She’ll be very much missed by everyone I know who is involved with the community
So onto the evening itself
Second, thanks to Mike Bryett for sticking with me to the end and putting up with me!
My final thanks go out to the Live Search Mobile team. Your great piece of software got me out of a jam a couple of times!
I had a really good time even though my busy day meant I didn’t eat until very late (Sweeny and Todd to the rescue though…what great food!) and drank far too much taking this into account. It’s probably for the best I didn’t go out on the previous two nights!
This week reminded me how much I’ve enjoyed the last twelve months being involved in the community.
Any community is only as good as the people in it and here in the UK the people that make up that community are top notch!
