Southwest Fox was once again a great success. Attendance was down only two people from the previous year, and since attendance seems to go in two-year cycles, that bodes well for next year.
Here are some announcements made at the conference:
- Southwest Fox 2017 will be held October 26 – 29 at the SanTan Elegante Conference Center in Gilbert, AZ (not in Canada, as I joked in the closing session, because 50% of American attendees will be moving there after the elections in November).
- The 2016 VFPX Administrator’s Award went to Marco Plaza for his work on nfJSON, nfXML, and nfRegExpTest.
- The 2015 Speaker Award went to Bobby Spyros Drakos (an Xbase++ speaker).
- You can watch the first part of the keynote at SWFoxTV and Phil Sherwood's "You 2.0" keynote on YouTube: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 (unfortunately, the audio isn't very good).
