The call has gone out!
We’re inviting anyone interesting in speaking at this year’s conferences to submit topics. You’ll find the Call for Speakers at http://www.swfox.net/callforspeakers.aspx. Please read the complete Call for Speakers document (linked from that page), and use our proposal submission application at https://geekgatherings.com/Submission. Session proposals are due by March 9. (Yes, this is earlier than in prior years. We have some publicity plans that require us to have a little more lead time than in the past.)
As in the past few years, we plan to offer a good selection of topics in core VFP development, extending VFP, using VFP with other technologies, and VFPX, as well as technology sessions to help VFP developers become better developers, not just more expert at VFP. We are looking for a few sessions on paths forward for VFP developers and we’re looking for a few deep-dive post-conference sessions.
For Southwest Xbase++, this year’s sessions should primarily focus on Xbase++ 2.0. We are especially interested in your experience with features such as Universal-SQL and Single or Multi touch UI development with 2.0. If you are involved in Web application development, we want to hear about how to get most out of WebHandlers and WebSockets with 2.0.
For both conferences, the Call for Speakers also lists some topics last year’s attendees specifically requested.
Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions. We’re looking forward to seeing your proposals. We expect that, as usual, choosing among them will be one of the hardest things we do all year.
