Re: KiCon 2019, a KiCad user conference


I hope everyone can attend.  It would be nice to meet more of the state
side developers and users.  I've only met a few of you at FOSDEM so here
is your chance to meet up with the US devs and users.  If you can,
please consider giving a talk.  Developers have insight most users do
not so maybe you can pass on some deep KiCad knowledge to users.  I'm
already signed up for the keynote.
