Hi Jeff -
Unfortunately I'm not able to make BoostCon this year. Have a wonderful
time. I'll miss waking up early for you morning sessions.
I did investigate Crucible far enough to determine that in June I would
setup a Boost trial server. I have not applied for a license or anything
of that sort yet. At first glance I didn't see an OpenSource hosting
option. I might have missed it.
I'll be looking for feedback from the BoostCon attending folks to see if
this was something you were able to explore. If not, I'll setup a server
in June that we can run a test on.
