As most of you have already heard, there is going to be a bus going from Grand Rapids Michigan all the way down to the devLink Technical Conference in Tennessee and making plenty of stops along the way. It will be a great opportunity to do an extremely long road trip with some of your geek friends. There will be plenty of experts on the bus, who you can corner and ask all of those questions that have been bothering you.
Get to know your local user group leaders and see what they are up to when they aren't making the development community work.

We are currently working to get sponsors so that the trip will be extremely inexpensive for everyone. The exact cost, and registration will be ready soon. Get the word out to all of your geek friends.
What route will the bus take? Where can you get on? While we are not sure of the exact locations of pickups, we do plan on stopping at all of the major cities along this route. Stay tuned for more information - coming very soon!
