We need expert Visual FoxPro and C#.NET programmers.
As you probably know, there are thousands of FoxPro and Visual FoxPro applications in existence worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Many of the owners of these programs believe that somehow their programs will no longer work in a few years. No one really knows.
What we do know that these programs need maintenance.
If you would like to work for us full or part-time remotely, please send us your resume.
Please read the following before you decide.
Many of these same owners believe that they can no longer find Visual FoxPro programmers to support their systems. There are hundreds of such programmers but they are not easily found these days.
The purpose of this site is to find highly qualified Visual FoxPro programmers in as many locations as possible and make them available to local customers when needed.
Most (or all if required by you) of your work will be done from your home or place of business.
We are seeking those who have at least 10,000 hours of FoxPro and Visual FoxPro experience. The work involves complete conversions from legacy FoxPro to Visual FoxPro 9 as well as running the old code (where possible), under Visual FoxPro 9. Experience in both of these areas are a definite plus but if you are really good in only one of them, please apply.
Because we are doing conversions from Visual FoxPro to C#.NET, we are also seeking excellent C# programmers who have a working knowledge of Visual FoxPro
If you have regularly attended Fox Conferences, all the better.
We are also seeking experts in converting FoxPro and Visual FoxPro to C#.NET.
We are contacted by businesses throughout the U.S. and Canada for help with their legacy FoxPro systems.
We are now in the process of finding FoxPro experts who can assist customers in their localities.
In addition, we are seeking FoxPro experts to do sub-contract work for customers not requiring local support.
If you would like your resume on our website, send a second resume leaving out company names. Just put the type and approximate size of each, e.g. Manfacturing company with 50 employees instead of ABC Manufacturing Company.
Provide at least 3 references with permission to contact them
If you want to have your resume on our website, get an email recommendation from each and forward to include on your page. If possible, get a short video of same. If possible, get a short video of same.
Your name will not be on our website. You will be, for example, "John or Jane of New York City"
How many hours are you willing to commute - we will include that on your website.
Provide your formal education as well as any certificates or awards you have
Your availability (i.e. full time, part-time, etc.).
Whether you can provide support during the regular work day
Number of Fox conferences you have attended
We also convert Foxbase, Clipper, FoxPro for Dos, FoxPro for DOS and dBase to Visual FoxPro or C#.NET.
Here are a few advantages to you:
1. Billable work you would not otherwise have
2. Ability to get new work if you have an established company behind you (when I first started, many times I did not get work because I was not an established company).
3. Access to others if you need some time off and need backup.
4. You will help in keeping Visual FoxPro a viable platform because ERW will provide a large number of readily available programmers for those companies who love Fox but thought they could not find a reliable source of programmers.
We require a signed agreement not to work directly for any customers we refer you to.
Please include your hourly rate (min-max).
