Tcl Conferences

This page describes Tcl conferences. This includes such things as (pointers to) summaries of old conferences, listings of new conferences (and discussion over where to hold them, how to improve them, and what food should be served at them :-) A particularly noteworthy aspect is a historical perspective on events that are noteworthy but for some reason fail to get written down and are thus forgotten to history. This page aims to correct this. Anecdotes, remembrances, and arrest records are encouraged.

See the Conference Mailing List @google for discussions past and hopefully future relating to the planning of future conferences.

AK: An older mailing list, , has not seen any activity since 2004, i.e. it looks to be dead. We should possibly recover its archives for posterity.
