It is with great sadness and profound regret
that we must announce the cancellation of
Colorado Software Summit 2009 –
and the end of Colorado Software Summit.

To Our Friends and Supporters,

In these challenging economic times, business has slowed, many companies have had to resort to layoffs and/or closures, and everyone has been tightening their belts. Unfortunately, Colorado Software Summit has not been immune to this downturn. As have so many companies and individuals, we too have experienced a severe decline in our business, and as a result we are not able to continue producing this annual conference.

This year would have been our 18th conference, and we had planned to continue through our 20th in 2011, but instead we must end it now.

Producing this conference has been a wonderful experience for us, truly a labor of love, and we have been extremely privileged to have been able to do well by doing good.  We are very proud of the many people whose careers flourished through what they learned here, of the extensive community we built via the conference, and of the several businesses that were begun through friendships made here. We treasure the friends we made, and we consider them to be part of our extended family. Just as in any family, we celebrated with them through joyous life events and grieved with them through tragic ones.

This is a sad time for us, of course, but not overwhelmingly so. It's sort of the feeling you have when your son leaves for college, or your daughter gets married. You knew it was coming someday, but it is here much sooner than you imagined, and the sadness is sweetened with the joy you had in all that has come before.

We have been privileged to have created a thriving community of friends who met for the first time at the conference, and we want that community to continue. We hope that all of you will stay in touch with us and with each other, and that the Colorado Software Summit community will continue as a source of wisdom and friendship to all of you. If you have ever attended one of our conference, we hope you will consider joining the Colorado Software Summit LinkedIn group as one means to keep in touch.

With our very best wishes for your future, and with unbounded gratitude for your support,

- Wayne and Peggy Kovsky -
