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

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.
