Southwest Fox, please email it to
Here's what attendees have said about previous conferences:
I have now attended every Southwest Fox conference and I will
continue to set aside October for Southwest Fox. The friendly atmosphere
at Southwest Fox promotes the easy exchange of ideas and development of
professional relationships. I have made many friends while there, and
the practical and theoretical knowledge I have obtained I now implement
routinely. Attendees should be sure to plan a vacation around their trip
to Arizona to enjoy its warmth and many natural spectacles! In summary
Southwest Fox is of great educational value, friendly and ideal

The technical content at Southwest Fox is top-notch. At most
conferences, I'm ready to start skipping sessions by the second day. At
SWFox 2006, every session was a gem. I wouldn't have missed any of them.
I also like the relaxed, low-key atmosphere. Unlike at other
conferences, there's plenty of time to chat to other developers, meet up
with old friends and make new contacts. I'll definitely come again.
If you only go to one FoxPro conference it should be SWFox. If
you are not planning on attending a FoxPro conference you should go to
SWFox. It is the best value your training dollar can buy. The speakers
are all top notch. The experience gained from just one session can
easily pay for the cost of the conference. I have attended every SWFox
conference held and found each and every one to be extremely beneficial.
You can't afford to miss this opportunity to learn what is new and
exciting in VFP.
I just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work on SWFox
2007. I think it was one of the best conferences I have been to in a
while. The buzz was amazing. I think everyone went home with a full head
and ready to take on their projects.
Everyone I talked to was excited to be there, and you could feel the
energy level running throughout the conference. I got totally
re-energized by this.

I just wanted to thank you all for putting on a great conference
this year. I've been to either Whilfest or Southwest Fox every year
since 2001 and I think this was the best conference I have attended.
Matrix Imaging Solutions, Inc.
Thanks so much for including Andy and me in this terrific event!
It was one of the best conferences we have ever been to.
Tightline Computers, Inc.
This conference worked out really well and is maybe the first Fox
conference in years that didn't have that feeling of a Democles Sword
hanging over it. Most people I talked to at the conference were upbeat
and excited with the stuff they saw and weren't constantly going on
about the future of Fox which is good to see.
In addition the staff at the conference center was exceptional.
I also want to thank you for putting this on - it worked out awesome in
combination with the Web Connection training before the conference. I
had the highest turn out of any previous Web Connection training with
nearly 40 attendees most of whom left highly fired up and ready for more
when they headed off to SWFox.
West Wind Technologies
Southwest Fox 2007 was one of the best (if not THE best)
conferences I've been too! I walked away with a ton of ideas and a sense
of excitement, and that hasn't happened for me at a conference in years.
The speaker selection was excellent. There were so many good sessions,
it was impossible to see everything I wanted. You all did a great job,
and I'm looking forward to next year's conference. (By the way, we saved
$1100 by buying products at the conference. These were things we needed
anyway, so the conference literally paid for itself!)
2007 was my first SWFox. I highly recommend this conference to
anyone interested in updating their skill-set and knowledge of VFP. This
conference was on-par or better than the best Advisor conferences I have
attended in the past. If you are interested in experiencing a the value
and power of the Fox community in person, try this one out. You will be

Great conference! I think I learned more about Foxpro in a
weekend there than I did in 6 months on my own.

Southwest Fox was CLEARLY organized by veteran conference
attendees/speakers who knew where all the gripes are. There were no
gripes. Your attention to the
details that always bothered all of us showed ... All speakers were
terrific. If I had to pick a standout, it would be Cathy Pountney's
session on controlling printers. She rang frigging bells. It's been a
long time since I sat at the end of a session thinking "WOW!" but she
did it ... I don't impress easily. You guys did it.
Westlake Village, CA
I want to thank all of you again for putting on an awesome
conference ... This was one of the best conferences I have ever
Thank you for a great conference, my first one and it was worth
the very long flight from Wales.
Welsh Blood Service
I also wanted to thank you for the excellent conference you had
organized. It was first class all around from the quality of information
to the amenities.
Matrix Imaging Solutions, Inc.
I really did enjoy the Southwest Fox conference. Things ran very
smoothly and the accommodations and food were just fine. I'd be happy to
see it held in the same place again next year. I know there's a TON of
unseen "work" involved in preparing such a conference, in addition to
actually "executing" it. You guys did a great job !!

I thoroughly enjoyed the conference. It was informative as well
as fun. I was a bit nervous about the conference. It's been about 8
years since I've done any serious FoxPro programming and I have never
been to a programming conference before. I was intimidated with the
possibility of being the village idiot.
What I found was a group of people who were friendly, helpful and who
had a sense of camaraderie. Old friendships were renewed and everyone
looked forward with a positive air towards the sessions.
As I sat in some of the beginner classes I was surprised to see many who
were far beyond the material of the class. They often shared their
experiences and techniques and this greatly enhanced the class material.
Every so often one of them would discover one or two things in the
session that they were thrilled to learn. And that apparently was the
reason for their presence in the beginner classes; learning new ways to
do basic everyday things.
I will definitely be there next year. Thanks for putting on a great
