Austin2023

Introduction

In March 2023 we are organizing our second US event, where we would like to meet our customers and potential customers from Canada, North, Middle and South America but also from other parts of the world.
We plan to launch X# 3.03 Γαία (Gaia) at this event.

Since we are a small open source project and we have limited financial resources, we have chosen to organize this as a relatively low budget event.
We have also chosen a location in the south of the US, so developers from Middle and South America, such as Mexico, are also able to come with a reasonable travel time.

We will present the current state of the X# development and what's new in X# 3.0 and show how to migrate your existing apps from for example FoxPro and Visual Objects to .Net.
This includes an explanation of the internals of the X# compiler and runtime and how you can use the new features in the product in your apps.
We will also spend time in explaining how X# works for the various dialects that it supports.

Our partner QLAdmin from Austin has helped us to set up an event that will be both informative but also attractive.
You have the chance to meet colleagues that create applications with the same tools, as well as enjoy presentations where we will demonstrate our open source solution to help you move your applications forward towards  .Net.

This summit is structured to encourage open and facilitated face-to-face discussion and idea sharing amongst all attendees.
Refreshments will be provided all day with scheduled lunch and snack breaks.
You are also invited to join in the group activities to continue your informal networking and make new friends in the X# world.
