Thanks to all who have already registered for Virtual Fox Fest; we appreciate your support and our speakers are excited to share all their sessions with you all soon. There is less than a month until the first day of the conference!

That said, we know there are procrastinators who have not registered and have good intentions to do so before the conference starts. Please, please, please do so sooner than later. Our hard working registration staff of one is also a presenter who is practicing and refining his session, and has more than a full-time job working on customer projects.

In case you are procrastinating, please register for Virtual Fox Fest before October 1st. Three good reasons:

  1. Save yourself $50!
  2. Our registration staff has a super busy October and would appreciate you saving $50. Not joking.
  3. If you wait until the week of the conference to register, you might not get your credentials until just before the first session on October 14th. You’ll miss all the details about the conference we’ll be sharing over the next few weeks, as well as chance to read white papers and download the examples before the conference starts.

It literally takes just a few minutes to register. We’d hate to see you miss the opportunity to get a head start on all the goodies. Go get registered! Now, really, don’t waste another minute. Here is the link: http://geekgatherings.com/registration.

Virtual Fox Fest is October 14, 20, and 26, 2021!

Only 22 days until we gather via the Internet. I look forward to seeing everyone again.
