When I am working with a large team of developers. Also, when a security policy, you are not allowed to install any app on your laptop. Cloud 9 is well integrated with Cloud commit. So we don't have to spend time in configurations.

Legacy applications already on VFP are a good candidate. If you plan to move to iOS and Android apps, VFP is not for you. Also, in future access to VFP programmers may be limited. You could use VFP as a powerful database tool. I know of many programmers who love to exploit the features of VFP to create easy to use applications.

Pros
Amazon AWS
  • It provides an extremely intuitive and easy-to-use interface, so adapting to it does not take much time.
  • It contains the most common programming languages.
  • It allows the export of files, either directly to the repository or to the team where you want it.
  • It is housed in the cloud so you can work with it from anywhere.
  • Allows you to share code or work on them with others in real-time.
  • Does not require installation.

Cons
Amazon AWS
  • Confusing documentation - AWS's documentation remains quite confusing, and the layout of other services/settings that you have to use with Cloud9 can be a bit of a handful.
  • Sometimes slow - As the size of a project increases, the editor gets increasingly slower, and starts slowing down the browser overall.
  • Long setup process - The setup for Cloud9 can be hard and tough, especially since the documentation is quite hard to understand.

  • Microsoft stopped selling this and stopped supporting it in 2014. It still works on Windows 10, but if you have a problem, you are on your own.
  • The look and feel of screens and displayed text is getting a little dated.
  • It's really designed for desktop/server environments rather than the cloud.

The interface for Cloud9 needs some improvement. It is simply not as powerful and intelligent as a local text editor would be and thus it lacks the capabilities of fast filling when coding. Otherwise, I think it has a fair interface that they have tried mimicking an IDE.

Customer support is managed by the Cloud support team. I won't be able to comment on details, but it's fast.

Although MS has discontinued support of VFP there is a good community of programmers that are available for help. In fact we have several programmers at Apptread that are skilled not only in VFP but also .NET so that if there is a need to migrate some parts of applications to .NET , it is easy for us to do that.

[AWS] Cloud9 offers specific features not available in the competition: Code collaboration using the chat features is the highlight which sets it apart. [The] code completion feature makes [it] very similar to the offline IDE like eclipse. It's much easier to use compared to Codeanywhere. It provides terminal access to EC2 instances and hence other amazon services.

We are only using FoxPro because it is the only way to add custom plugins into the software we use to manage our stock. FoxPro is a semi-oriented object language and should clearly not be compared with recent technologies.

Return on Investment
Amazon AWS
  • We save time since we do not need to configure files or our equipment.
  • We have the most appropriate tools for software development in one place.
  • We can work from anywhere so if that day we could not get to our office or something we can do from home.
  • We can code with a single browser.

  • Positive impact is that the value of FoxPro applications has continued to increase over the years, so we are in high demand for our services.
  • Negative impact is that sometimes you have difficult to support scenarios where you might have to spend many hours to just keep something functional.
  • A negative impact is that this language is taught in very few places, either in schools, or private learning centers.
