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.

We’re glad so many have already registered for the May 6th Virtual Fox Fest. We still have room for many more.

If you’re planning to attend, please register sooner rather than later. Our hard working registration staff (Rick) is an organizer, and has a full-time job and then some working on customer projects. If too many of you wait until the week of the conference to register, some people may not get the credentials in time to see the first session on May 6th. It literally takes minutes for you to register, but it takes us longer to process your registration.

We don’t want you to miss all the details about the conference we’ll be sharing over the next couple of weeks. We want you to have a chance to read the white papers and download the examples once we release them before the conference starts. 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

Here are some follow-up notes about Virtual Fox Fest 2020, the first but likely not the last online event hosted by Geek Gatherings:

  • Videos for all presentations are now available on YouTube for free to everyone, as our contribution to the VFP community. Be sure to subscribe to our channel.
  • If you want materials (white papers and sample code) for the presentations, go to  https://geekgatherings.com/Registration and “register” for the conference. You’re not really registering since it’s over, but in the Registration Fees section of the registration page, you’ll see “Virtual Fox Fest 2020 Session Materials (download)”. The cost of the materials is $49. There’s also an opportunity to sponsor Virtual Fox Fest, which means your name will be listed on our Sponsors page.
  • We’re planning on doing a survey soon. It’ll be sent to all attendees but if you want to participate so you can help shape future events, email info@geekgatherings.com and ask to be included.
  • We have tentative dates for an in-person Southwest Fox conference next year: October 14-17, 2021, at the same location as previous years: the SanTan Conference Center in Gilbert, Arizona. At this point, we don’t know whether we’ll be able to have an in-person event, but hope springs eternal!
  • If you didn’t attend Virtual Fox Fest, check out our Facebook page and see what you missed, then plan to attend a future one so you can join in the fun.

On a personal note, I found the Virtual Fox Fest exceeded my expectation on every front. It ran smooth, no show-stopping technical glitches, and the people who attended interacted just like when we are in-person with the exception of handshakes and hugs. I still walked away exhausted and energized at the same time. I’m looking forward to the next event, no matter where it is hosted and how we get together.
