Southwest Fox/Xbase++ Deadline Looms

Hear that sound? Tick, tick, tick, tick...

That's the countdown clock at Geek Gatherings getting closer to the Super-saver deadline for Southwest Fox and Xbase++! July 1 is only a few days 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.

The conferences take place October 18-21, 2012 in Gilbert, Arizona and we really hope you can be there. We would hate to see you miss out on the $125 discount and the free pre-conference or post-conference session. These sessions are more popular than ever this year. One person has registered for four pre-cons, and all three post-cons!

Already registered? Thanks. Can you help us remind your fellow developers who have been procrastinating that the deadline is looming? Anything else you can do to promote the conference would also be appreciated.

Also, if you sent in your registration and have not received your confirmation, please contact us to see what has happened. Everyone gets a confirmation and a paid invoice as a receipt when registration is processed.

Special drawings for people who register before July 1st:

  • Two White Light Computing Scholarships of $150
  • One Tomorrow's Solutions LLC Scholarship of $150 (only those who have not attended Southwest Fox since 2007 are eligible)
  • One license of Stonefield Query SDK (a $6,000 value; both conferences eligible)

Check out our list of amazing speakers and dig into our session tracks. Follow the news about the conference on our blog.
