location Portland | Friday 14 November — Sunday 16 November 2014 (PDT)

The Facts

It’s John’s birthday and what a better way to celebrate than coming to sunny* Portland, OR and hanging out for a weekend long “unconference”. There will be stuff and things to do.

Some things we could do:

  • Ignite-style talks (5-10 minutes, fixed duration slides)
  • Art
  • Climb fake rocks indoors
  • Coffee
  • Beer
  • Hike
  • Video Games

Benefits to attending JDC:

  • It’s a “conference” so you can expense it
  • You have an excuse to visit Portland
  • You will learn things
  • It’s easy to get to from the airport and train station
  • You can meet new people
  • You can say you were at the first JDC ever

The FAQs

Is this a real thing?

Yes, please only sign up if you’re actually coming. I have no idea if I should expect 5 people or 50 so if it’s the latter, I’m going to have to figure some things out.

Do I know John well enough to attend?

Actually, you don’t even have to be my friend. Maybe you found this by typing random URLs in your browser until you found one that worked, in which case, I definitely want to be your friend.

Are there any rules

Glad you asked, yes.

  1. Be cool.
  2. Don’t be not cool. I can’t imagine that there will be a problem here but it’s an open invite.
