Plugfest 2009

Although there isn't an official announcement on BACnet International's website yet, I'm told that this year's North American Interoperability Workshop will be held in Atlanta on October 13-15. (Yes, there is another, held every other year in Europe and sponsored by the BACnet Interest Group - Europe; last April it was in Helsinki.)

I always recommend that BACnet developers attend these events. It helps them to see how others have gone about their BACnet implementations -- and sometimes why the BTL Working Group imposes requirements over and above the standard. It's conducted in a informal and congenial environment.

Last year there were almost a hundred attendees from 29 companies from all around the world. I wonder if this year will top that?

Update 8/13: The official announcement just went up here. Hmmm... Sheraton Gateway Atlanta Airport? I know that hotel -- stayed there one night last fall after week of the BACnet committee meetings ended and before I flew to Dallas for a conference. The shuttle may get a bit busy...
