Legacy Systems

Get the most out of your legacy systems, or turn them into state-of-the-art technology!

Legacy code is everywhere! And it needs to be maintained and brought forward. This is often difficult, but we can help! We are experts in moving older systems forward to the latest and greatest technologies, and do so in the least interruptive way. We can help with conversion projects of various kinds. We can also help maintaining your older projects as long as needed. We have tools. We have processes. We can train existing staff on new technologies based on their current expertise.

VFP Conversion

We can help converting legacy systems of various kinds, whether you need to move an old Visual Basic app forward, or whether you need to move from Windows to the Web or Mobile. We can help with your database conversion needs of various kinds. However, the service that people come to us most often, and the combination of technologies you won't find anywhere else, falls under our "VFP Conversion" label.

If you need your Visual FoxPro application converted to a newer technology, there simply isn't anyone else who offers the same service. VFP Conversion (and www.vfpconversion.com) is an effort we have now maintained and developed for close to two decades. Our level of expertise in this area is unprecedented (for instance, we have former members of the Microsoft Visual FoxPro team on staff). And we also have tools and lots of free information. Click here to find out more!

Strategic Staff Augmentation

CODE Staffing is dedicated to augmenting your software development team.

We have top-level experts in all technologies, available either on-site or remotely! Need a skill that no one on your team possesses? Need temporary staff to meet a deadline? CODE Staffing can help! With CODE Staffing, you not only get the professional you need on your team, but you also gain access to the entire CODE Developer Network of experts!
