This may be of interest to some of you - the focus will be on higher ed 
and community source.

Subject: [Appdev] higher-ed developers conference:  JA-SIG

Let me evangelize an upcoming event:

  The JA-SIG Spring Conference
  April 27-30, 2008
  Crowne Plaza Hotel, St. Paul, MN, USA

JA-SIG is an organization, one of many, hosting open-source projects for higher 
education.  They're most well-known for the uPortal portal and CAS web signon 
system.  Their conferences have traditionally been developer-oriented (as 
opposed to being for IT managers or faculty or policy-makers ...).  For their 
conference this year they've undertaken to bring together the whole spectrum of 
higher-ed-oriented open-source activities; you can see all the logos on the 
conference page (I was on the program committee for a while wearing my 
Internet2 hat).

I think it will be a great event.  In addition to the main conference there are 
lots of BoFs and side events for all kinds of communities and projects.  It 
will be a great opportunity for developers to rub elbows with the core folks 
from lots of different places.  Bob says check it out.
