2012 Southwest Fox - Looking Forward

October is fast approaching and every passing day I am starting to look forward into this year's SouthWest Fox DevCon.  Most especially after I looked into the available seminars.  Here are the list of Sessions:

    There are 7 conference tracks at Southwest Fox. "Level" shows the expected level for attendees for a session.

    Pre-Conference: These half-day sessions are offered on Thursday, October 18, and are available for an additional cost

    Extending VFP: The sessions in this track look at ways to extend VFP's reach, by using it together with other products or by taking advantage of native extension capabilities.

    Solidifying VFP Development: This track appeals to all VFP developers. Sessions cover either VFP fundamentals, aimed at those newer to VFP, whether moving up from FP2.x or coming to VFP from other languages; VFP best practices, aimed at helping all VFP developers improve; or in-depth looks at aspects of VFP that some developers may not have mastered yet.

    Taking Advantage of VFPX: The sessions in this track showcase the projects in VFPX, providing attendees with enough information to put those projects to work for them. These sessions are deep dives into specific VFPX projects.

    Technology for VFP Developers: This track looks at tools, technologies and techniques to make life as a developer easier and more productive.

    Moving VFP Applications Forward: This track covers topics related to taking VFP applications beyond the desktop, such as with web applications or mobile technology, as well as alternatives for new platforms and future application development.

    Post-Conference: These sessions are offered on the afternoon of Sunday, October 21; see the Workshops page for details. 

Please visit for a more detailed info on courses available, speakers, and a lot more things.

To make things a lot easier, an online registration is now available here:

I would like to thank the late Ceil Silver, Doug Hennig, Tamar Granor and Rick Schummer; and the rest of the Committee involved in Ceil Silver Fund for giving some of us, developers who cannot easily attend on our own, the opportunity to  be part of the SouthWest Fox Devcon.   Plus to all of you who nominated me to be this year's ambassador. Believe me, the cost they have to shoulder plus the efforts they have to pour out in bringing a developer like me into the DevCon is huge.

I hope I will be seeing some of you whom I have known by names over the years  inside and outside of Foxite there. See you in October!
