This web site is by no means a complete study of the FOCUS programming language. It is merely an introduction to the idea of using a very powerful tool to do otherwise tedious tasks and provide information that might take inordinate amounts of time to obtain manually. The user that truely would like to become proficient in this language can enroll in a basic FOCUS programming class. Classes are offered through the UConn Computer Center, but can also be found at offsite locations as indicated below. Of course, as with most new concepts learned, the best way to become comfortable with FOCUS is to use it in day-to-day applications. The following are suggested resources that the novice user can refer to or call upon for help. This page will be updated periodically to accomodate changes in URL and e-mail addresses.
