There's just one week left until the XDC2011 Chicago conference begins and then two weeks from today marks the beginning of Munich Oktoberfest 2011.

As the organizer of XDC2011, I hope to have out the schedule and a few more details in the next few days. The event officially runs from the 12th to 14th of September, but there's foreign nationals beginning to arrive on Friday and so I will be out meeting with them on the days prior to the event. For those not in Chicago for the event, I will be providing my notes on Phoronix as well as audio and video recordings.

The morning after XDC2011 ends, I'm then back to Munich until October for the yearly Oktoberfest pilgrimage. Make sure to read my guide to Oktoberfest 2011. I mention this since, for those that don't know, there's usually a Phoronix meet-up and am generally happy to meet with Phoronix readers and other interested parties most any day at the wiesn.

For those that don't know where to find me, see last year's description. It's always in the Augustiner tent and in the area between the water closet and kitchen, before reaching the center area near the band stand. The tables I am at are served by some wonderful friends, either G√ľnther or Susie. Asking either of them for Michael can show you where I am at if I'm around, or simply looking for the American in lederhosens with toe shoes.

If you're looking to meet-up, please post in the forums, contact me, or use Twitter so I know at least a day in advance. That way it can be ensured I don't have other plans that day or am meeting with any of my business sources or other people, and I can also have some seats available.

Ideally, if you know the dates you will be at the wiesn, please post in the forums (using the comments and discussion link below) so that the logistics for the formal Phoronix gathering can be sorted out. If it's not at the Augustiner tent, it will likely be at the Augustiner-keller biergarten just a short walk from the wiesn.

For those not going to Munich Oktoberfest, while I am gone for three weeks there will be many interesting Phoronix article, including a 40-way Linux graphics card comparison on open and closed-source drivers. I'll also still be around posting news everyday and handling Phoronix Test Suite matters, etc. Prost!
