Evans Data, citing poor attendee registration numbers, has cancelled its first-ever Development Products Conference. The conference, scheduled to be held in San Jose this Thu. and Fri., was billed as “If your job involves planning new technology products for developers to use, or positioning and marketing those products, this is the ONE conference you can’t afford to miss.”
This is unfortunate: I’d been looking forward to attending, and BZ Media was a sponsor of the event. Ted Bahr, president of BZ Media, was a scheduled speaker on the program, along with folks like BEA’s Bill Roth, TIBCO’s Ram Menon, IBM’s Bernie Spang, Programmer’s Paradise’s Jeff Largiader, Telelogic’s Brian James and Red Hat’s Bryan Che.
You won’t find any mention of the DPC on the Evans site; the company has scrubbed it away.
