Deadlines for Southwest Fox:
This year, I took a different approach with separate shows for each organizer but the main message is still the same : July 1st is their Go/No-Go date.
Conferences don’t talk about this very often. I don’t think developers really question if Apple will hold their WWDC in June or Microsoft will hold their Build conference – but that’s because those conferences are vendor-led.
Southwest Fox is a community-driven conference – it’s not driven by a company with an agenda. Listen to the interviews and you can hear how important each of the organizers feel the live connection between speakers and among attendees.
