The 1999 Mathematica Developers Conference was held October 21-23 at Wolfram Research headquarters in Champaign, Illinois. Approximately 120 top international Mathematica developers, consultants, and users were present to discuss the latest Mathematica products and developments, including MathGroup founder and moderator Steve Christensen. Since last year's conference, 17 new Mathematica-based application packages have been released, in addition to the newest version of Mathematica itself, Mathematica 4. Popular conference features included the Mathematica Programming Challenge and other interactive, hands-on tutorials and product demonstrations. Also popular this year were web-related talks on evolving technologies such as MathML and Java scripting.
