The schedule is now set. Thirty cities in just over five months (exactly five months and six days). March 9, 2013 to August 15, 2013.
The final city additions include Detroit, Buffalo (NY), and Boston while I cut Pittsburgh and Indianapolis since they took me too far south to visit Boston.
I am currently finishing up my research on each city and planning individual days when I will be programming, meeting up with people, and exploring each city. I won't have every day planned exactly - it's better to leave some flexibility in case there are unexpected adventures along the way.
More details to come soon now that it's about four months until the trip begins.
