Subject RE: ApacheCon's EU 2012 and NA 2013 - save the dates and get involved!
Date Fri, 04 May 2012 11:04:28 GMT
Hi All,

I guess it's not carved in stone, but the contract with the venue is already signed.
Anyway, I could try to change it, but I'm not sure if it will work out...

However: The only other option left would be CW43 = 20-22 November - and this is clashing
with US Thanksgiving.
So moving the event to late November would more or less exclude US committers...

Best regards,

oh actually I can only highlight the concerns by Mark and Peter.
W-JAX gets a lots of attention. Its done by the creators of the
biggest IT related magazines in germany and therefore they have great
ads running. Usually many well known devs speak there.

Is it possible to change that date or is it carved in stone?
