    Bruce is back! This week, Bruce will be talking about "formal database design". ie learning some of the names and concepts for some of the things we are (mostly) already doing.
    This will be a "first principles" look at what designing a database in a dictionary really means.
    The goal is to both solidify good practices already taking place, and also to perhaps eradicate some bad practices that we may have picked up along the way.
    Bruce Johnson

    Now Bruce does a little explaining about Unicode.
    1:10 Roberto asks if Bruce has added Fastmem to jFiles.
    1:17 Bruce found an IDE trick this week - it now throws in the closing tag automatically for you. if you click on the xml tree and then double click on the top node, when you switch back to the xml view, the source will be nicely formatted for you, instead of just being a long string. Roberto shows a new feature in FireFox (v53) that gives you different headers for JSON code where you can see it in different formats - raw, header, etc - that can be helpful in debugging.

    Notes
    26 April 2017
    0:00 Wolfgang mentions in a skype chat about only using NetTalk methods that do not start with underscore - those are internal calls. Bruce says yes that's sort of true, but they don't keep you from using those methods.
    0:05 Alan Cochran wants to know about upgrading to the latest version of C10 - is it safe for SQL?
    0:10 Franscico has questions about version control. Lisa and John talk about using Rick Martin's version control addin.
    0:36 --- StringTheory Method of the Week --- StringTheory.Abbreviate allows you to pull a specified number of characters that will logically break your string in to a shortened version.
    Now Bruce does a little explaining about Unicode.
    1:10 Roberto asks if Bruce has added Fastmem to jFiles.

    Source control for databases! This week, Dennis will be talking about Continuous Integration for databases.
    Topics to include:
    Forking the database to make changes to the database or the code.
    Branching and merging
    Code that watches for a database change in version control (very simple process here)
    The code or the processes that do the actual builds.
    The tools used by the build processes, Sql Compare, Sql Data Compare, Sql Doc and Sql Builder (I don’t use the Sql Data Generator for some specific reasons)
    And the resulting executable files that create or upgrade the databases.

    0:47 DavidP wants to know what is the best way to extract json response from http response.
    --- StringTheory Method of the Week --- StringTheory.After to pull everything in a StringTheory object AFTER the passed character string to look for. Related - Before, Crop & Trim.
    John asks about the path/file methods... he's missing the create folder/directory method. Look to WinEvent's ds_CreateDirectory which is recursive (will check all directory's in the path passed exist and creates as necessary) and thus is nicer than the Clarion built in mkdir which only creates the one directory.
    0:51 Wolfgang wants to know about GUIDs in StringTheory and checking for duplicates.
