Hear that sound? Tick, tick, tick, tick...
That's the countdown clock getting closer to the early-bird deadline for Southwest Fox! July 1 is less than a week away and we thought we would pass along a reminder just in case you forgot to type it into your task list, or stick it on your monitor on a yellow sticky note.
Southwest Fox takes place October 16-19, 2008 in Mesa, Arizona and we really hope you can be there. We would hate to see you miss out on the $75 discount, the free pre-conference session, and a chance at the $300 scholarship from White Light Computing.
Already registered? Thanks. Can you help us remind your fellow VFP developers who have been procrastinating that the deadline is looming?
Now if the great sessions, networking opportunities, Arizona weather, fun and merriment, discount, and freebie pre-con are not enough to entice you to come, how about a chance to win an Microsoft's Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Suite and MSDN Premium Subscription (1-year), valued at $11,000. We've got three of them to give away!
Okay, so maybe that is not enough. What if we told you the moment we process your registration, we'll send you a code for a free license for xSQL Software's xSQL Data Compare Pro (a $399 value). This product allows you to compare and synchronize data in two SQL Server databases. That's right, you get back almost US $400 of the registration cost even before you reach Mesa!
Where are those ginsu knives?
We have lots of raffle prizes from our sponsors and vendors to give away during the conference.
Special thanks to all our sponsors: White Light Computing, Stonefield Query, Tomorrow's Solutions LLC, Sybase iAnywhere, Servoy, xSQL Software, FoxRockX, ApexSQL Software, Sweet Potato Software, Redgate, Information Technology Associates, and Visual Extend.
If you're a user group leader, you probably want to contact us if you have not done so already and let us know you want in on the $25 per registration for your group. Free money to help your organization fund your activities.
You cannot go wrong with this, but you have to let us know by July 1st that you are interested. Send contact information to email@example.com.
