LOAD12 is a go

Yesterday evening the Loadays organisation team met for their yearly post conference dinner.

In short .. we decided to go on with Loadays in 2012 ..
We've set up a poll for you folks to give us some input on the format .. do you want us to keep organising loadays in the weekend, or do you also want the conference on a weekday (friday) ?

We're blocking some dates in the venue's location, once we have feedback from the community we will announce the final dates.

The poll will be open till mid september.
