Fellow CodeMashers,

After much debate, cajoling, discussion, and gnashing of the teeth,
we're pleased to announce the list of accepted sessions. With each
passing year this process becomes much more difficult, not only
because of the high quality of submissions, but also because of the
growing quantity. In fact, this year we received over 300 submissions!
Accordingly, we're pleased to announce the addition of a 7th
concurrent track, bringing our total count over the two-day period to
a whopping 63 sessions!

Below you'll find the list of sessions, ordered according to the
presenter's first name. In the coming days we'll be posting the
titles, descriptions, and speaker bios on the CodeMash site, along
with a schedule.

Speakers: in the coming days I'll be following up with you regarding
various speaker-related matters, and of course am always available via
this e-mail address.

Jason Gilmore and Dianne Marsh
CodeMash Speaker Coordinators

Incredible Line-Up. Too bad I'm going to have too choose between sessions!

If only we had enough money as a conference to hire confreaks, then we could watch the videos of the sessions we missed.

This sounds great! Glad to see I'm on the list too. :) When will

Sorry, but I either didn't get it or it was somehow misfiled. Can you confirm it went to me, and if so can I trouble you to send it again and I'll try very hard to track it. Alternatively, you can send it to jlib...@jliberty.com though I typically get your email at jlib...@microsoft.com without a hitch.

Thanks!

Hi Jesse,

The e-mail actually went out around 10am this morning (in your case,
to your Microsoft address). I'll forward the e-mail to you anew in a
moment.

If this was supposed to go to pre-compiler speakers as well I never
received it either.

Hi,

A separate e-mail to pre-compiler speakers will be going out shortly.
