(I dug up the old “devcon 2006” logo and I like it so much I thought I could use it again!)
I’d like to suggest that we set a date and place for the Rockbox International Devcon 2008 soon so that we all can start planning for it properly.
Personally, I would claim that having it near an international flight hub is a good idea (why Stockholm Sweden is ruled out this time), and since the dollar is dirt cheap now it is probably a good idea for both US-citizens and non-US citizens to have it in the US.
Within the US, I would suggest that the east coast and New York is among the best choices due to it being a frequent and often cheap destination from several places in Europe.
But of course, this requires that we have a volunteering person or preferably more than one person in that region who can hunt a suitable place and do some basic arranging for this kind of event. Any takers?
And if not New York, is there any other friends near an international flight hub that think they could work as “host” for devcon2008?
I would also suggest that we pick a date in the latter half of June. Around the weekends 21-22 or 28-29.
What do you think?
