Breakout sessions take place all day Friday and Saturday, and Sunday morning. The conference closes with a general session midday Sunday.

Southwest Fox

Although Southwest Fox is primarily a Visual FoxPro conference, we welcome sessions on other technologies that can enhance VFP development and that improve development generally. We're also interested in a few sessions that offer Visual FoxPro developers a path forward.

To be considered, download the Southwest Fox proposal application and send your proposals to no later than 8 AM EDT on Friday, March 23, 2012.
