2012 Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients

At the keynote for Southwest Fox 2012, we had the pleasure of announcing this year’s recipients of the FoxPro Lifetime Achievement Award: Cathy Knight and Craig Boyd. If you couldn’t make it to the conference, you can watch the awards being presented at the 24:33 mark of the streaming keynote.


Cathy is the reigning queen of reporting for Visual FoxPro. In fact, both of her sessions at Southwest Fox were how to get the most of the Report Writer and were among the most popular sessions. I’ve used her tips in countless places in Stonefield Query and it’s a much better product as a result. You can read Cathy’s bio and her thoughts on winning the award.


Craig has one of the best VFP blogs on the planet and has developed some of the most insanely useful tools around. I’ve written numerous articles about them in FoxRockX and Rick Schummer did a session about some of Craig’s tools; both just barely scratched the surface. I also use several of his tools and techniques in Stonefield Query. Craig couldn’t be at Southwest Fox to accept the award in person (Bo Durban accepted it on his behalf) but I’ve been assured he watched the streaming keynote. You can read Craig’s bio here.

Congratulations to both Cathy and Craig. Well-deserved!
