Good to hear! MWDS last year

Good to hear! MWDS was one of my favorite Drupal events (rivaling even DrupalCon in it's community relationship-building).

I ported Wysiwyg Linebreaks last year, and spent a little time working on install profiles in D8, and the whole event was fueled by some great food—plus bacon donuts!

Chicago in August?!?

Sounds very hot and muggy! I guess that will be incentive for us to stay inside and code. :}

But if it were about two weeks later, I'd be inclined to come out by train, bring my bike, and ride at least part way back (we've been thinking of a bike tour in Minnesota/Wisconsin), which might make it more likely I'd go. Too bad! I think August 15 would still be pretty hot for cycling.

Oh wait, this is in the Core group. Are we supposed to have comments on? I thought they were off by policy in Core.

Yeah, I didn't pick the date

Yeah, I didn't pick the date based on the weather. ;)
Will you come anyway? :) -c

Maybe/probably...

Getting to Chicago is relatively cheap/easy so I should be able to come, and I'm sure it would be fun, but I'm not making any promises right now. :)

It was mentioned at CADUG but nothing was said about an Eventbrite site or anywhere to sign up. Is there anywhere to put my name down as wanting to attend?

While many of us have been scrambling over the last few days to find a new venue to host the summit, Alina (@alimac) provided the best solution with a space at UIC. Details and an Eventbrite link will be posted soon!

Really want to go to this,

Really want to go to this, but there's no way I can get time off to be there all four days. Don't want to take the spot of someone who can be there the whole time, so will wait to see if there are any spots left over (though unlikely.)

@justAChris, even if you

@justAChris, even if you can't attend all 4 days, I would say grab a ticket, and participate when you can.
