X# Summit Memmingen 2020

Introduction

In October 2020 we are organizing our first European conference in years.

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  Germany, so developers from Switzerland, Austria and North Italy are also able to come with a reasonable travel time.

The main audience for this event is existing Visual Objects and Vulcan.NET developers. However we will also spend ample time on our Visual FoxPro support.

We will present the current state of the X# development and show how to migrate your apps from VO to .Net. We will also have time to explain some of the internals of the X# compiler and runtime and how you can use the new features in the product (generics, lambda expression, linq, scripting, multi threading etc) in your apps. We will also show you how you can port Visual FoxPro apps to X#,

With the help of our local partner Karl Faller we have selected a venue for the event.

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.

Location

The event will take place at the following hotel:

   Hotel Weisses Ross       Hotel Weisses Ross
Kalchstr. 16

I think October 16th is Friday, not Thursday. I guess rooms are available from Thursday 15th then?

Hi, its very early, but...
time to continue with XBase but moving forward to C# and .Net with the help of X# and to meet the nice people who still want to let XBASE survive...

Memmingen is not so far from my place. But maybe Ill stay in the hotel on 16th. Now booked 16&17.
Hope to get a lot of new ideas...
