GRAFUG Meeting June 14, 2008

Hi everyone,


Our special all-day “Andy & Marcia Show” was a huge success!! We had a very full room, which made it nice and cozy. Good thing the Fox Community is really friendly! Andy & Marcia presented a total of 5 sessions which made for a long day and a lot of learning. For everyone who came to the class, you’ll receive a private email with the instructions to download all the class materials.


I want to thank everyone that came and made this day a success. I also want to send out a HUGE thanks to Marcia and Andy for giving us their time. We truly appreciate it!! 


Announcement … this just came in from Rick Schummer.

Southwest Fox Just Got Better


Southwest Fox 2008 Gold sponsor xSQL Software is giving away a free license of xSQL Data Compare Pro (a $399 value -- allows you to compare and synchronize data in two SQL Server databases) to every conference participant. What a great offset of the conference price - you pay $695 for the conference and get back more than half of it ($399) with this offer alone! Even better, you'll receive your free license as soon as you register for Southwest Fox 2008 so you don't even have to wait until October!



Just announced this evening...


The three organizers (Rick, Doug, and Tamar) from Geek Gatherings are each donating one copy of Microsoft's Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Suite and MSDN Premium Subscription (1-year) as give-aways for Southwest Fox 2008. The subscription retails from Microsoft for US$10,939.


Three lucky attendees will walk away from the conference with all of Microsoft's top-of-the-line "everything package for developers", which includes all the Microsoft developer tools, server products, operating systems, Microsoft Office 2007, Microsoft Dynamics, SDKs and more.


You must be registered for the conference to be eligible to win, and present for the drawings. More details to be announced closer to the conference.


We still have some more surprises to come!


Reminder to all … GRAFUG doesn’t meet in July or August so our next meeting will be in September. I hope you don’t suffer from withdrawals too bad!


Have a great summer!


Cathy Pountney

GRAFUG President & Secretary
