Delphi Live 2011 announcement

Last year when I was at Delphi Live, the event was a bit smaller than it had been the year before.  Less attendees, less sessions, not as nice of a venue, etc.  Kind of to be expected, with the economy in the toilet and all, but still it was sorta sad.  I heard a few  people mention that the way things had gone, they doubted there would be another one this year.

Just yesterday I was thinking back on that, and I figured it was probably right, or we would have heard an announcement about it by now.  And that kinda sucked.  I’d really enjoyed going there the last two years.  Well, I’m glad to be able to say I was wrong about that.

I just got an email from Frank Stepan, the organizer of the conference:
