In 2010, I helped organize the first ArchCon, held in Toronto. We had a blast, and I considered it a success. Unfortunately life overtook me and I did not have time to organize a second one in 2011. I heard that there was a Polish language conference that used the ArchCon name that year, but didn’t know about it until it was over.
This year, the Polish group is going all out with the first truly international ArchCon. You can view their site in English at http://2012.archcon.pl/en/ (other languages also available). They’re expecting up to 250 people and are planning a terrific after party and workshops. The conference will be held in Warsaw on July 28 and 29.
Sadly, I won’t be able to make it, but I am very excited that the community has grown enough to create this international event. If you’re going to be near Poland at that time, I encourage you to register. ArchCon 2010 was a small event, but it was a lot of fun and to the best of my knowledge, everyone was glad they attended. There’s something special about being surrounded by Archers.
