Some exciting announcements are forthcoming within the next few days and weeks. At least one headliner that will draw in a substantial crowd ;-)

Great news! I wasn't able to attend Progday and was looking forward to them. The Facebook announcement and the website have them slotted on Sunday, not Saturday. Edit: Actually the banner for the RoSfest site and the announcement disagree. The banner for the site has them Saturday but the announcements I've read all say Sunday. I do realize I am just quibbling here (or I do nowLampEmbarrassed) .

It'll be interesting to see where the mix up is. When I was asked to write the press release a few weeks back, TYS was scheduled for the Saturday slot. Which is what I wrote as well. Since then the press release has been edited, and either there's been a change of plans or the editor has mixed the days.

It is rewarding to be involved indeed, even if my role is of a distinctly minor nature.
