Is this an official announcement? We haven't received an email and the website seems to be functioning as usual. We booked travel for a speaker and would like to know whether to cancel


This is from the founder:


at the same time @skillsmatter account tweets about event on 25th November


but possibly it's an automated tweet?

Thanks. I saw it - but didn't see anything specific regarding Clojure Exchange?

I received a short email from the person responsible for running all the conferences at SkillsMatter. They simply said that SkillsMatter did not exist anymore. I asked for more details but none have been forthcoming. Without SkillsMatter there is no venue, food, or any knowledge of who has bought tickets. It is assumed that SkillsMatter financial affairs would be locked down by the Administrators to prevent further loss. My assumption is that all the staff were all told on Friday 30th October that SkillsMatter was in Administration and no longer have jobs. It seems to have happened quite unexpectedly, so I am not clear what communication, if any, will come. It seems to be all in the hands of the Administration company ReSolve Advisory Limited. It is assumed that any official communication will come via the administrators and this may take a while to surface.

ClojureX conference 2019 - The Revival As you can see from the announcement from above, the original conf has been cancelled. So if you’d be interested in the conference still taking place, which would be 100% non-profit(!), to gauge interest, please fill in this questionnaire: Thank you
