yesterday evening I got this mail! (see below)
This is very very exciting since we will get the opportunity to present
LimeSurvey in front of a very dedicated OSS jury with famous names and
even gain more attention for the work we are doing. I checked with my
current employer. They are willing to let me go for the 3 days! I will
make sure I do a very good job presenting the software. And in the end
maybe we will even win a nice prize! It also will be great to create new
contacts with all the people meeting there... who knows who you might meet.
So my question is:
Seb (Boozoo) and Thibault (lemeur) are from France. Why not have an
unofficial LimeSurvey dev meeting there too? If you have special
expenses to get there let me know and on that day LimeSurvey project
will pay the bills
The whole thing goes from 28-30th of November. I may be able to delay my
flight back to meet you on Friday, for example?
So guys from France, how does it sound to you?
