Please join the Philadelphia VFP User Group's as our exciting summer
continues this Wednesday, July 16, with a visit from Cathy Pountney to
present "Customizing Your Vertical Market Application." As usual, dinner
begins at 6:30 with the meeting at 7 PM. Once again this month, we'll
provide dinner for the group; please send an email to tamar@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
if you're planning to come for dinner, so we get enough. There's a $5 charge
for the meeting, with or without dinner.

The meeting location is Valley Forge Pension Management, 715 Twining Road,
Suite 202, Dresher, PA 19025. Note that the Oreland offramp from PA 309
Southbound has been permanently closed. The easiest way to reach the meeting
location from the PA Turnpike or 309 Southbound is to come through the Fort
Washington Industrial Park.

Customizing Your Vertical Market App:

Writing a vertical market application can be very rewarding. You write one
application, sell it numerous times, and sit back while the money rolls in.
Well, that's the theory anyway. The reality is that often times, new clients
want to buy your software, as long as you can change this one little thing.
Managing custom code for various clients within your application can easily
turn into a nightmare as your client base expands. This session shows you
how to implement a customization methodology in your vertical market
application that keeps your standard code independent from your custom code,
yet have the two code bases play nice together.
