The next meeting of the Philadelphia VFP User Group will be Tuesday, August 9 at 7 PM in room 128 at DeVry University, 1140 Virginia Drive, Fort Washington, PA. Feel free to come as early as 6:30 PM and bring some dinner. However, because the room is a computer lab, food and drink are not permitted. So, we?ll meet for dinner in the seating area in the far hallway and move to the meeting room at 7. This month will feature Menachem Bazian?s postponed-from-February session titled ?Map It With Google.?

Simple quick reminder: save $50 by registering before the Early-bird registration deadline this Sunday, July 31st. If you still need to register, please head over to the registration Web site today: Every registered attendee gets admission and white papers to all regular conference sessions. Don't miss this chance to learn from the best and mix with your peers. It?s still only July and we already have nearly $15,000 in raffle prizes, with more yet to come.

We have some good news to share today. Thanks to the support of both the Visual FoxPro and Xbase++ communities, Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ 2016 will proceed as planned September 22-25, 2016 in Gilbert, AZ. We really appreciate all the support people have shown for the conference with early registrations! That said, the decision comes with a calculated risk because we are still many registrations short of the breakeven point. Please continue to spread the word to your colleagues, clients, user group and anywhere else Visual FoxPro or Xbase++ is spoken. If you haven?t yet registered, there?s still room for you. Register before August 1 for a $50 early-bird discount.

The countdown clock is ticking! The Super-Saver deadline for Southwest Fox and Southwest Xbase++ 2016 is June 30th, just a few days away! We still need people to register to make the conferences happen. The conferences take place September 22-25 in Gilbert, Arizona and we really hope you can be there. We would hate to see you miss out on the $125 discount, the FREE pre-conference session, and an opportunity to win a scholarship or a license of Stonefield Query SDK (a $6,000 value).
