Qt Developers Days 2012
I would like to know when is supposed to be the next qt developers days. I need to ask for vacation in my job, and I need to ask them anticipated enough to don't have any problem. Some of you knows about QtDevs2012?
AFAIK, it was not announced yet. I'm waiting, too :)
Haven't heard about that too.
But last year the announcement was pretty late too.
I suspect problems at Nokia might push the date further a bit more this time. Plus, I've recently moved to Munich, so Murphy's Laws tell me that either another city will be chosen, or the whole event cancelled.

Last year, announcement was end of May I recall.
In case you haven't heard already, or if someone else is wondering, "KDAB":http://www.kdab.com/kdab-to-host-european-qt-developer-conference/ will host this years European developer days in Berlin in the middle of November. The date has yet to be announced.
I got this from KDAB regarding the Qt DD in Germany;
Thanks for your interest in Qt DevDays Europe!
We are not only sponsoring but hosting the Qt DevDays this year on behalf of the Qt community.
We are racing to finalize the venue (in Berlin) and precise dates (week of November 19 - 23) and all the rest and will get back to you as soon as we have that.
As for Qt DD US, ICS is hosting;
The Qt Developer Conference will be held in Silicon Valley December 5-7.
No venue at this point...
So far I'm planning on attending the ICS one. I would attend the Qt Dev days in SF instead but Nokia is taking long to say when , and if, it's takng place. I want to know ASAP because right now it's still cheap to fly fro Sao Paulo, Brazil to SF
Nokia is not in the picture for this. ICS is.
There is no official statement from Nokia and I doubt there ever will be one.
But let's collect the pieces:
- No announcements about DevDays yet
- Nokia discontinues the use of Qt even on the feature phones
- The Brisbane Trolls got their pink slips
- Other Trolls are awaiting theirs or got them already
- Rumors have it that Nokia is going to sell off Qt
I'm pretty sure and would bet a penny that 2011 saw the last Developer Days organized by Nokia.

It's so sad... :(, but you have all the reason.
And KDAB now have a call for presentations out, so if you have anything interesting to talk about, please let us know at:
Registration is now open
Unfortunately, there isn't enough information on the site yet to decide. No pricing, and no (preliminary) schedule. Those are needed to convince the people that need to pay for these things in companies to let people travel there.
Now poking the right people to make this happen...
