The Southwest Fox 2019 Keynote Presentation will stream using Facebook live video starting at 7:00 pm MST (10:00 PM EDT), Thursday, October 24. Kevin Ragsdale is presenting the keynote session titled “The Fox Family: A Whimsical Celebration of FoxPro and the FoxPro Community”.
Andrew MacNeill has posted the third of our FoxShow interviews. In this one, he talks with Tamar about women in tech, how she got here, and of course, Southwest Fox.
Registration for Southwest Fox 2019 has been open for a few weeks and there’s less than a week until the Super-Saver Registration deadline. If you register before the end of June, you save $125 and we’ll throw in a pre-conference session worth $99. Not only that, but you’ll be entered in the drawings for a scholarship that will reduce your cost even more and a license of Stonefield Query SDK, a $2,500 value. Check out the speakers and topics on the conference website.
Please beat the rush so we still have some fingernails left when July begins! No need to wait, we won’t charge your card or cash your check until the middle of July!
Andrew Ross MacNeill, the host of the FoxShow, interviewed each of the Southwest Fox organizers separately this year and talked to each of about how we got into computing, why we go to conferences and much more. The first two of the shows are available now.

We’ll let you know when Tamar’s interview is posted. Thanks, Andrew, as always for helping us spread the word about Southwest Fox.
Registration for Southwest Fox (http://www.swfox.net/register.aspx) is now available. See http://www.swfox.net/speakers.aspx for a list of speakers and http://www.swfox.net/sessionsswfox.aspx for a list of 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, 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 send out any “We need your help” appeals so please do not wait; register 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 we have committed to going forward (sometime after July 2), so this is not is a reason to wait.
We look forward to seeing you in October!
At the closing session of this year’s Southwest Fox, we announced dates for 2019. Mark your calendars for October 24 to 27. Watch for the Call for Speakers in February.
Simple quick reminder: save $50 by registering before the early-bird registration deadline next Tuesday, July 31st.
If you still need to register, please head over to the registration Web site today: http://geekgatherings.com/Registration
Every registered attendee gets admission and white papers to all regular conference sessions. Don’t miss this chance to learn from the best and mix with your peers.
See you in October!
Ooops, we goofed! One of the us went on vacation and completely forgot to schedule the end of July reminder to get registered before the Southwest Fox 2017 Early-bird deadline. So to make up for this colossal mistake, we have decided to extend the Early-bird discount of $50 through August 21st.
The conference takes place October 26-29, 2017 in Gilbert, Arizona and we really hope you can be there. Head over to the registration Web site today: https://geekgatherings.com/Registration
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 email, drop a hint at your local user group, or tweet about it? Spread the word by telling others you going on our Facebook event.
Hear that sound? Tick, tick, tick, tick…
That’s the countdown clock here at Geek Gatherings getting closer to the Super-saver deadline for Southwest Fox! June 30th is this Friday and we thought we would pass along a reminder just in case you forgot to type it into your task list, or put a yellow sticky note on your monitor. We still need people to register to make the conferences happen.
The conference takes place October 26-29, 2017 in Gilbert, Arizona and we really hope you can be there. We would hate to see you lose 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).
