About the Author
Whil Hentzen, Author, is president of Hentzenwerke Corporation, a 17-year-old firm that specializes in strategic database applications for Fortune 2000 firms in the manufacturing, financial, and health-care industries. The firm has commercial products and custom applications in use throughout the United States and in nearly two dozen foreign countries. Hentzenwerke has hosted the semi-annual Great Lakes Great Database Workshop since 1994.
Whil has written and spoken extensively about software development. He is a multi-year Microsoft MVP, and editor of FoxTalk, Pinnacle Publishing's high-end technical journal for FoxPro. He is the author of books about Visual Studio (Visual FoxPro 6.0 Fundamentals), Visual FoxPro (Programming Visual FoxPro 3.0), FoxPro (Rapid Application Development with FoxPro 2.6), and custom software development (1999 Software Developer's Guide).
He has presented more than 50 papers at conferences throughout North America and Europe, including the Microsoft Visual FoxPro DevCon, the German National DevCon, Conference to the Max (the Netherlands), the Spanish National DevCon, Database & Client/Server World, FoxTeach, the FoxPro Users Conference, and the Mid-Atlantic Database Workshop. He spends his spare time with his kids and volunteering for the local school district, and is an avid distance runner, hoping for one more shot at a sub-15-minute 5,000-meter clocking before age and common sense close the door on that activity.
