First, I'm glad to hear that you had a terrific time at the event. It sounds like everything went off well and hopefully we can work with CodeKen on the next iteration. I'm saddened to hear that you felt like we didn't do anything to support the event when in fact it was the opposite. I worked directly with Jon to ensure that the event handover went ...

I could potentially (no promises here) sort out an evening event hosted at the Google offices - whether that's as a series of lightning talks or something similar. We already host an "Open Source Jam" periodically.

We had a fantastic time at the conference. It was one of those rare occasions where you have great speakers and an extremely knowledgeable and engaged audience. I had a number of speakers praise the level of follow up questions they got from the audience throughout the conference. I can confirm that Alison was extremely helpful, introducing me to a number ...

Yes. Yes we should. We could easily have a pub based meet up, but if we have enough volunteer speakers and attendees, a day similar to DevDays '09 might be fun. Depending on the number of interested people, we can get some central conference facilities for not a whole lot of cash monies (just a quick Google gives a nicely located 50 person room for the day, ...

Zero Days - $263. Vote for this if you booked for a conference and have non-refundable airline tickets and/or accommodation in an expensive city such as San Franciso, Washington or London.

I will be in London next November 14th and 15th. I can be there for a Sunday evening event as well. (I am the French correspondent of a London-based team, usually working in Paris France, but for that specific week, I have to work at their London office anyway) If you are still interested in the talk "DVCS in big corporation", based on the SO answer to "...

London Dev Days Resurrected... or something like that! Following on from VonC's initiative I've been in touch with VonC, Jon Skeet and the other presenters to see if they are available to continue with the original line up. So far we have confirmation from half of the presenters and we are working on the rest. I am in talks with a sponsor that would help ...

The new format required a larger commitment in terms of time and money than the old format did. As a result, many people who attended DevDays 2009 couldn't afford DevDays 2011. As a result, not many people registered. As a result, the conference couldn't support itself. As a result, the conference was scrapped. As a result, DevDays 2011 is a completely ...

I need to be in London anyway some time this year, and I might as well stick to the original plan. This is not a 100% commitment yet - I haven't any tickets booked at the moment. But I would be ready to commit if there's a decent turnout, a location settled on, and bookings in place. Unfortunately, due to lack of local presence and knowledge, I'm unable ...

CodeKen are set to do another dev days in London, and are sponsored by Careers and SO.

I haven't started trying to get refunds yet. I'm not sure if I'd commit to two (work) days, if it's just for an hour and a half in a pub (even though I'd love to meet you guys). But if I really can't get refunds, I might consider it. Thanks for the thought anyway. Attendance: I'll be in town from Sunday early evening, but my return trip is on Tuesday ...

Great job guys! I was really bummed out when I heard this was cancelled. Getting to London is fairly easy for me and I'd already blocked out the Monday and Tuesday in my diary. I was scheduled to speak about my research and would be more than happy to do so at any "Plan B" event, if people wanted me to. My area of research is Sensory Substitution and I was ...

Sorry to add to this thread rather than the chat room but there is a minimum reputation before you can post there. I am from London and would be interested in coming to an afternoon / all day event in that week if one could be arranged.

A basic calendar on the meta of each site where meetups could be scheduled by region (somehow) would be awesome. If there are going to be smaller meetups, they will have to be a bit more localized and good tool would be pretty useful. I would be more than happy to help organize a meetup in the Southeast US for interested SO, Programmers, etc. users by the ...
