As you've probably noticed changes have happened to the names of the UPE conferences this year..
Unofficial Propeller Expo West (UPEW) has become The Official Propeller Conference on May 4th, 2013.
Unofficial Propeller Expo NE (UPENE) has become Propellerpowered Expo NE on August 17th, 2013
The Propellerpowered Expo NE will be held a just a little further south this year. We've established a new facility in Kidron, OH It's more suited to the needs of the Expo group with plenty of room to grow.
I'll provide details for hotel reservations and the like as we get closer to this date. For now we just want you to circle that day in your calendars. Details on the Propellerpowered expo will be at it's usual URL
Why was it Unofficial in the first place??
Back in 2006 when Parallax had no idea who I was, and I didn't know Ken and Chip weren't stuffy "suits" that wouldn't be open to someone forming a gathering around their product, I called the event "unofficial" so that we wouldn't have to ask permission and receive the typical "NO" you would get from other less progressive companies. Little did I know at the time just what kind of cool I had tapped into. We fully support the official dropping the "unofficial" name and maintaining the expo events which are centered around your projects, your excitement, with plenty of sharing and interaction you've always loved about expo gatherings! Long live The Official Propeller Expos!
