i would be happy to announce to my friends here in foxite and in iraq that i am working to accomplish the first visual foxpro programmers group in iraq. in fact, i can say it will be the first programmers group in iraq.

  it was my dream to build this group since about more than 4 years ago, and at that time i send an e-mail to one of the iraqi foxers who is a member in foxite too (we never met) and told him that i will work on creating a foxpro group in iraq. he show his readiness to help me on that. but at that time, i was totally engaged in my medical study to get the certificate of neurosurgical profession. now it is about a year and a half since i finished my study and training and got the certificate to work as a professional neurosurgeon (with very good marks ;-d ..... ). now i can say that i got some more time to make my dream come true.

  i was hesitant to announce this group. i was waiting for it to be more stabilized and active to announce it but several e-mails from boudewijn lutgerink encouraged me to announce about this group early. thanks to boudewijn, his idea is that this early announcement is a good wake up call to iraqi foxers (or i can say to iraqi programmers in general).

  so, i e-mailed several iraqi foxers who are members in foxite and told them about the group. till now i got a response from 4 members in different cities in iraq and they was happy about it. i am waiting for the response of others and trying to hunt more (foxes) in the (forest) 🙂

  at the time being i got a google account for the group in which i build a simple web page, a discussion panel, a blog. google account will give us great sharing features with its documents, photos, calendar, gmail audio and video and text chat and more. i posted these news to my new iraqi friends to start arranging the work of the group, getting to know each other and build a friendship that will boost our passion to share knowledge and arrange for the first foxpro developers conference ( i hope that be in the near future).

  we are just in the first step ... i hope we can make it a solid reality.

 we wish to hear from all of you foxer friends, about your experience in
this regard and your advices to us as a newly born foxpro group.

the iraqi visual foxpro programmers group,
