An interesting (free!) conference is coming to Chicago in early April this year, an Open Space event on Continuous Integration and Automated Testing. Both of these subjects are dear to my heart, so I'm hoping to help get the word out about this conference. They organizers haven't set the date yet because they need to see how many people are interested before they will know how big a space to reserve.

Automation and Testing are Good Things!
