What's new in the Visual FoxPro Community
posted on Friday, July 1, 2016
We have some good news to share today. Thanks to the support of both the Visual FoxPro and Xbase++ communities, Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ 2016 will proceed as planned September 22-25, 2016 in Gilbert, AZ. We really appreciate all the support people have shown for the conference with early registrations! That said, the decision comes with a calculated risk because we are still many registrations short of the breakeven point. Please continue to spread the word to your colleagues, clients, user group and anywhere else Visual FoxPro or Xbase++ is spoken. If you haven?t yet registered, there?s still room for you. Register before August 1 for a $50 early-bird discount.

The countdown clock is ticking! The Super-Saver deadline for Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ 2016 is June 30th, just a few days away! We still need people to register to make the conferences happen. The conferences take place September 22-25 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). After checking out our list of amazing speakers (http://www.swfox.net/speakers.aspx) and digging into our session tracks for VFP (http://www.swfox.net/sessionsswfox.aspx) and Xbase++ (http://www.swxbase.net/sessionsswxbase.aspx), head over to the registration Web site today: http://geekgatherings.com/Registration.
