Here is the description from the Chicago FoxPro User Group Site

We have a couple of representatives of Sybase coming to Chicago to demonstrate their Fox-friendly data server -- Advantage; An alternative to pricey backends with an easy conversion route. It should be a good time -- another milestone in a long history of tech twists and turns. From their promotional material at * Flexible data access via either native relational SQL or direct navigational database commands. * Optimized data access for all development environments, including Delphi, Visual Studio, Visual Objects, Visual Basic and more. * Zero administration, easy to install and manage — does not require a database administrator, eliminating high administration costs. * Complete referential integrity support including primary/foreign key definition and cascaded updates and deletes. * Complete server-based transaction processing eliminates database corruption, drastically reducing support costs. * Database security and encryption support. * Fully scalable from local to peer-to-peer to client/server environments — with one set of source code If you have been wondering about a Fox friendly data backend that breaks the 2 GB barrier, come check out the Sybase presentation of Advantage Database Server. First meeting is free. From then on, $10 per meeting or $75 per year. The usual time and place: Tech Nexus 200 S. Wacker Drive, Suite 1500. Tuesday Nov. 10th at 5:30pm (chip in for Pizza and brown bottle beverage.) Here’s the RSVP link: As we have worked to keep the FoxPro Users and Developers group a vibrant and interesting colloqium over the years, we notice that new blood comes into the group based on one meeting or subject. I remember making contact with a future employer because he came to see what was up with Crystal Reports in 2002. See you there?
