I’m sorry to report that the deployCamp conference has been cancelled. I heard from Elliot and Andy. There wasn’t enough early uptake on it.
That is too bad. Conferences are hard work, but I’d love to see an independent developers conference. Company conferences are fine if you’re all customers and want to learn the latest. But a place for developers to come and talk freely and learn cool techniques would be valuable for our space.
Maybe we can get a few more interested people to back it.
The Silicon Valley model was good, but there is such a critical mass of people within a 50-mile radius. There is no central locus for manufacturing software. We’re scattered all around the country.
If you have any ideas, pass them along.
