HHC 2015: Nashville!
After much wrangling with many hotels, it was finally decided to have HHC 2015 at the same hotel that hosted HHC 2012, the Holiday Inn Express in Brentwood, Tennessee, which is near Nashville. Hotel prices have gone through the roof lately, but the Holiday Inn Express was able to give the best deal by far.

The official HHC 2015 website just went "live". Check it out for details, or to register your desire to attend: http://hhuc.us/2015

Thanks Joe for launching the web pages for HHC2015. I was both surprised and delighted to see my name in the initial list of attendees! I have my airline ticket already and some free hotel nights reserved (through an online hotel-reservation service).

I must confess that I felt bad pre-populating the list with a few of The Usual Suspects without even asking you first, but I would feel even worse starting with a totally empty list. Glad to hear that you'll actually be there! Wink

Would not miss it for the world! I am planning to give a talk too ("Genetic Algorithms Optimization on the HP Prime"). You are welcome to add that title.

I'm on the maybe list. It's definitely close enough for a road trip, and my wife and I have never been to Nashville, but we've got a wedding to go to in Saginaw on Friday. Gotta see what that schedule is going to be first.

There is a courtesy phone at the airport. You call the HIE hotel and tell them that you need to be picked up and which terminal you are in. You have to then walk to a location for hotel shuttle pick up. Very easy!

Looking forward to meeting you!

RE: HHC 2015: Nashville!
Holy smokes, 25 signups in 16 days! At this rate we'll have ... let's see ... (pulls out HP 50g) left-shift-hold+9, 6.092015 9.262015 DDAYS 16 / 25 * --> 170 attendees! But the hotel meeting room only fits 40 comfortably. I hope we won't have to replace the conference registration page with a "Sorry, No Vacancies" sign. We've never done that in the past.

If we have too many people, we could have concurrent sessions: presentations in the meeting room, and at the same time programming jam sessions in the hotel pool. Smile

RE: HHC 2015: Nashville!
Does anyone know if Tim Wessman (and family) will be attending this year's HHC2015? I didn't see Tim's name as registered yet. Just curious. Always good to see Tim and the rest of the Wessman family present.

On another note, it's good to see such a healthy response to the Nashville, TN HHC2015 location. Congratulations to the HHC committee!

I don't know yet. Due the company split activities, essentially all travel and non-critical expenses (aka - this thing won't ship without it!) have been stopped. They want everyone completely focused on delivering good numbers when the split happens and have us completely focused on that.

With 3 young kids and one income.... things are a bit tight. I'll have to figure out how/if I can personally afford to pay or get there this year. :-(

If I can make it work, it will just be me by myself this year.

Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own.

I'll be coming down from west central Indiana. It's a little over 4 hours from Nashville.

That's not a long drive!

It's about 9 to 9.5 hours from Richmond, VA. I will be flying from Phoenix where I visit my son, sister, and some friends.

It's practically in my backyard! Many of the other conferences have been on the coasts. Glad to have one nearby.
