Real World Fox 2006 World Tour

Each year I try to visit as many Fox User Groups as I can fit into my schedule and still bill enough work to pay the bills. White Light Computing has a corporate directive to share knowledge with other developers and one of the ways we do this is by going on the road and speaking through the user group presentations and developer conferences. Last year I was on the road for six man weeks. This exceeded the corporate goals and made me look good to the boss (always looking for ways to win back brownie points so I can push for a raise during my next review).

I am starting to plan out my tour dates for 2006. This year I am calling it the "Real World Fox 2006 World Tour."

So far I have firm dates for the Grand Rapids Area Fox User Group and Detroit Area Fox User Group here in Michigan. A couple of other groups already have asked, but I want to make the offer open to all groups who are interested. So if you are the geek in charge of schedule meeting presenters, send me an email (it can be found on the contacts page on the White Light Computing Web site) and I will see what I can do to make it happen.

Hi Rick, hopefully you define your "World Tour" somewhat more extensive than Rod Paddocks one (

Somehow people outside the USA tend to define "world" somewhat different than to be only some states in USA ;)

Hi wOOdy,

Well last year my "world tour" also stopped in Germany. I am not sure what 2006 will bring yet, but my intent is to speak outside of the USA again.

Didn't Rod speak in Canada during his World Tour? I pretty sure that counts {g}.
