Kevin Ragsdale: Visual FoxPro 9.0

Holy Cow! Have You Seen the Southwest Fox Lineup?

Bob Kocher did a heckuva job with the Southwest Fox Conference, as it has become the absolute *premier* Visual FoxPro conference (at least in the United States - I've never been to one overseas). He left some big shoes to fill, but honestly, I can’t think of anyone more capable than Doug, Rick and Tamar.

A few days ago, Rick blogged about the speaker list (say, who’s that guy wearing a baseball cap? {g}), and today they launched registration with a complete session list.

WOW! What a lineup of speakers! And the sessions: something for everyone, from beginners to experts, this is an absolutely amazing lineup.

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 showMicrosoft that VISUAL FOXPRO MATTERS: Go to a conference this year. Pick one, two, or even more. But most importantly, GO!

Take it from someone who waited over ten years to attend his first conference - you'll be glad you went!
