The awesome emfcamp.org people made the hard decision to cancel their upcoming summer camp. We know how much work and enthusiasm goes into organizing, and understand how difficult this must have been. It saddens us that we cannot attend this year, but we look forward to EMF in 2022!

To be honest, when Oracle bought it (now 10 years ago) I thought that would be the nail on its coffin.
