The Original Fox Development Team in Toledo

"The original development team in Toledo was composed of the following people. The 90's were a good time to work at Microsoft and most of them are retired now. I don't think any of the developers left Microsoft to work somewhere else."

"All the people on this list, and others who worked on FoxPro after the merger, did fine work and the product wouldn't be the same without them. I don't mean any disrespect to anyone on the list by highlighting the special contributions that Eric and Bill made. Everyone on this list did important work, but maybe Eric and Bill stood a little taller than the rest."

"I think also that the special contributions that Janet Walker made to the team may not be fully appreciated by those not involved. Janet wore a lot of hats at Fox, and was the Group Program Manager on the Microsoft FoxPro team. She and Dave acted as the designers of the product. I think it's fair to say that the primary visionary behind the product and the company was Dave Fulton, but Janet had a much more direct role in designing FoxPro than many people understand. If the only contact someone had with her was in her capacity as "tender to the gurus," they might not understand the central role she played in putting the product together." (Walter Kennamer)
