@czhenry Hi Chuck,
That's great news, thanks for posting all this info here. Unfortunately I probably won't be able to come to the US on that date, I already have an academic trip planned there in September 2015 and I don't think I can afford to do that twice in an year. Nevertheless, I really hope this will work out!
Also, it would be great to have some material from the conference (talks and performances) and uploaded to Youtube or Vimeo. I have been looking for material from the previous PdCons but I found very little online.
Take care and good luck!
