Kevin: Go To a Conference

At the risk of “do as I say, not as I do” (as friends will note, I have been unable to attend a lot of conferences of late), Kevin makes a great point about attending conferences:

“With all the hoopla over FoxPro, no VFP 10, the petition, the signers, the non-signers, the reasons, the Roadmap and the need for “answers”, there’s one thing you can do to show Microsoft that VISUAL FOXPRO MATTERS: Go to a conference this year. Pick one, two, or even more. But most importantly, GO!!!”

And with the start of the Advisor Devcon (PLEASE- someone be blogging this) and the rest of the conference season, I second that statement. As well, if you’re a conference or user group organizer or speaker and want to talk about your sessions on the FoxShow, please get in touch with me. While I may not be able to attend, I definitely want to promote these as great ways of reaching out to the rest of the community.

Rick Schummer does a great job of this with his regular Fox User group tour.

Prague – 19th – 21st June 2007 (noted by Eric as well)

FoxForward – Sept 7th-9th, 2007 (Alpharetta, Georgia)

Southwest Fox – October 18-21, 2007 (Arizona)

German Developer Conference  – November 8-10, 2007

This isn’t to forget about all the great user group meetings that are up there as well! Check out the Wiki for all the details.

Hmmm….Canada seems to be missing from this list. That is something that has to be fixed!

    Ooh! Ooh! I’m a conference organizer and I’d love to be on the FoxShow again!

    I’ve gotta find a way to get the word out about FoxForward any way I can.

    Last year, I had one gentleman call me the morning FoxForward had started to see if he could still register. He had just found out about the conference. {g}

  2. Hey Andrew,

    I’m hoping to spend some time blogging about the conference while I’m there.

    Unless I’m up all night every night “tweaking” my sessions. 🙂


  3. Andrew – we’ll happily welcome Canadians at Southwest Fox. In fact, one of our organizers is Canadian.

  4. Don’t I know it, Tamar!

    Doug (and Steve in Prague) keep the Canadian content alive.

    I was just lamenting the lack of a Canadian-based FoxPro conference.
