The organizers know the biggest draw to get you to come to Southwest Fox is the sessions and the speakers who share their vast knowledge with you during your stay in Mesa. We have an extraordinary line up with some of the best minds in the Visual FoxPro Community lined up to cover some topical and interesting material. Our speakers include a mix of people who have presented at one of the six Southwest Fox conferences, and some new people who presented and even organized other Visual FoxPro conferences around the world.

Our speakers include Rick Borup, Craig Boyd, Kevin Cully, Bo Durban, Steve Ellenoff, Toni Feltman, Tamar Granor, Uwe Habermann, Doug Hennig, Venelina Jordanova, Paul Mrozowski, Cathy Pountney, Rick Schummer, Rick Strahl, and Christof Wollenhaupt.

You can find more details on our speakers page.

There are 24 conference sessions, 4 pre-conference sessions, and 4 post-conference sessions offered in seven different tracks. Please check them out. We believe you will be challenged figuring out how you can see all the sessions you want in the time we spend in Mesa. Fear not though, each speaker is providing an organizer mandated white paper for each session they present so you have reference material to read when you return back to the office.

We have a couple of new tracks this year with the Web Development and a Post-Conference track. The Web Development track is a direct response to feedback given to the organizers last year.

Based on last year’s attendance and expenses, we plan to offer three simultaneous sessions rather than four. If early registration warrants, we will select additional speakers and add a fourth session room. So please help us offer you even more content by registering early and by inviting and convincing other Visual FoxPro developers to attend this year’s conference.

In the coming weeks we will be blogging about some of the plans we have for Southwest Fox 2010.

For some reason it feels unbelievable there are only 160 days until we gather in Mesa.

Rick is the lead organizer of Southwest Fox and president of White Light Computing, one of the platinum sponsors of the conference.
