jQuery London 2010 Postponed

Posted on by

After much deliberation, The jQuery Project Operations Team has decided to postpone our planned London event this year.  Unfortunately, we were unable to secure a suitable venue that would allow us to provide the type of professional-quality event the community has come to expect within a budget sustainable by the project.  We regret any inconvenience this may have caused and are actively working on planning a European event for 2011.
