I downloaded my first issue of FoxRockX and I have to say that I like it. The format reminds me of the old FoxTalk issues. There is a good amount of content; twenty-four pages with out any advertisements. And of course, source code was included.
Out of the five articles in this issue, Doug Hennig's "Deep Dive: A Generic Import Utility" is my favorite. This article is part one of a two-part series that will demonstrate how to add a generic import utility to your application. In this issue he discusses the overall design and engine code. The next issue will be about the user interface.
Articles like this are a major reason why I subscribe to technical publications. Maybe I don't have a need for this today. But, I know that there is a good chance I will someday. And when that time comes I will more than likely use this article and sample code as inspiration for designing and writing my own.
