I'm Matt Simmons, the PICC'11 (http://www.picconf.org) Conference
chair, and I wanted to give you some exciting news about our community
First, if you haven't checked out our schedule, you should:
http://bit.ly/PICC11-overview - We've got classes on Documentation,
Python, Perl, Powershell, IPv6, and much much more. The opening
keynote will be presented by Theo Schlossnagle from OmniTI.
Second, because this is short notice, we're extending the $125
early-bird savings for one week, until Tuesday, April 12th. This
discount, which is taken off immediately when you register, more than
saves you the price of the hotel room. You definitely want to book
now. If you need to talk to your boss to get this approved, we've even
got a letter to help: http://bit.ly/PICC11-justification
Also, don't worry about getting to the conference. We're located in
the Hyatt Regency, New Brunswick, which is within easy walking
distance from the AmTrak station, which is also serviced by
NJ-Transit. We're simple to get to.
We really want you to come to the conference. We think you'll have a
great time, we know you'll be surrounded with people you can learn
from, and if last year's is any indication, it's going to be a blast.

Again, I'm the chair of the conference, so if you have any questions,
just click reply and let me know. I'm happy to answer any questions at
Thanks for your time, and I'll see you at PICC'11!
