Southwest Fox on the FoxShow--special offer

Less than a week to Southwest Fox/Southwest Xbase++ Super-Saver deadline!

​We're not sure how it happened, but it's less than a week until the end of June and the Super-Saver registration deadline. If you haven't registered yet, what are you waiting for?

Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ take place October 16-19, 2014 in Gilbert, Arizona and we really hope you can be there. We would hate to see you miss out on the $125 discount, the FREE pre-conference session, and an opportunity to win a scholarship or a license of Stonefield Query SDK (a $6,000 value).

If you're still deciding whether to come, check out our list of amazing speakers and dig into our session tracks for VFP and Xbase++. Follow the news about the conference on this blog.

If you've already registered, we thank you. Can you help us remind your fellow developers who have been procrastinating about the looming deadline by sharing this blog post or tweeting about it?

By the way, if you sent in your registration and haven't received a confirmation, please contact us to see what happened. Everyone gets a confirmation when the registration is processed. As promised, we are not cashing checks or processing credit cards for new registrations until the middle of July.

We're looking forward to seeing you in Gilbert in October.

Registration is open for Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ 2014

Registration for Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ is now available. See the website for a list speakers, VFP sessions and Xbase++ sessions. Super-Saver Registration, which saves you $125, is available only through June 30th, so don't wait.
 
Putting on a conference is a risky endeavor. Conference centers require a guaranteed minimum income to block the dates of a conference; for a conference like Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++, that minimum is in the tens of thousands of dollars. We have to commit to the conference center by July 2nd and need your support by July 1st to make that commitment. We will not do "We need your help" appeals this year so please do not wait, get registered by June 30th! We know most of you like to wait until the last minute to avoid the credit card bill arriving too soon. We will not charge any attendee credit cards or cash any checks until sometime in the second half of July or early August (once we've committed to going forward), so this no longer is a reason to wait.

Rick, Doug, and I look forward to seeing you in October!

Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ 2014 speakers and sessions announced

We've announced the speaker and session lists for Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ 2014. I'm really excited about both my own sessions and the rest.

I'll be resurrecting an old VFP community tradition, the Tips and Tricks session. I'll present as many goodies as I can fit into the session.

My other session has me looking at what SQL Server's T-SQL offers beyond my VFP-based SQL roots.

As we always try to do, we have two speakers new to Southwest Fox (Matthew Olson and Phil Sherwood, neither of whom are new to the conference, actually, just to speaking) and two more newbies (Peter Alderliesten and one not yet announced) for Southwest Xbase++.

Several sessions touch on things that I've had to deal with in the last few weeks, including PostgreSQL and REST. I'm also looking forward to Jim Nelson's IntellisenseX (or, as I think we should spell it to increase attendance, IntellisenSex) session to finally get me started using this cool tool.

On the Xbase++ side, many of the sessions focus on what's new in Xbase++ 2.0. There's even a pre-conference session dedicated to that version.

​Registration opens soon.
