I may be missing it (which has been known to happen ), but I think a discussion area for DevCon 2012 would be helpful for people to discuss the sessions, venue, activities and a chance to "pre-network" before the event.
For first timers it would give a chance for some DevCon tips and advice from long time attendees. I know on my first one many years ago, knowing a few folks from another forum to help us get the "lay of the land" down really enriched our experience and helped us get the most of our first time!
DevCon is expensive (especially if you're on your own or a small shop) but I think can be well worth the investment if you know how to get the most out of it. If anyone is going for their first time, feel free to msg me - I love to meet new FileMaker folks and will be happy to help answer any questions you may have!
But it would still be nice to have an area on our board if possible for it - thanks!
