As August approaches, it is becoming clear that the health of the world is unlikely to be in a place that will allow ClueCon to go on as planned. We are concerned about the safety of our attendees from all over the world. Like everyone else, we have been waiting patiently and watching the spread of COVID-19, and we have decided it will not be possible for our attendees or us to plan for the event that we know and love.
With that said, we are going to cancel the in person version of ClueCon in Chicago this August. But we aren’t giving up on meeting with our community and catching up with old friends and making new ones! Instead, we are working hard behind the scenes to offer a free, deconstructed version of ClueCon online. We will strive to offer the elements that make ClueCon, ClueCon: opportunities to connect, industry expert speakers, a version of our Hack-A-Thon, The Coder Games, and of course some swag and prizes. Stay tuned to find out all the details and how you can join us August 4th – 6th online. In the meantime, you can use our “intent to sign up” link to stay in the know.
We hope everyone is staying safe and we look forward to the day that we can all get together again!
The ClueCon Family
Right now we’re thinking of the ClueCon family in every corner of the world. We hope you’re taking care of yourselves and that you and your loved ones are doing well. With any luck, you’re enjoying extra time at home – if you don’t already work remotely! The FreeSWITCH team is carrying on the same as ever, working remotely from all over the globe. We will be around if you have any questions about our ClueCon plans, so don’t hesitate to reach out.
We have plenty of activities lined up for August 3rd-6th in Chicago at the beautiful InterContinental Hotel on the Magnificent Mile, the city’s premier commercial district. When you’re not busy with ClueCon, you’ll be able to enjoy a bustling neighborhood filled with upscale shops, historic sights, and tasty restaurants like Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse.
Plan on having a full schedule though, because one ticket will get you access to the ENTIRE conference, including all of the awesome presentations, the Coder Games Hack-A-Thon, and networking events! The speakers are a major highlight of ClueCon, and as an attendee you’ll learn from brilliant professionals about creative problem-solving, demos, and get insights about the future of the industry. You can join us at the Coder Games, and code or build your way to prizes! After days of speakers and presentations, you’ll also have plenty of networking opportunities with great food and drinks – this year’s Gigabit Reception will include board games, hors d’oeuvres, karaoke, and a Mario Kart tournament, just to name a few.
Your registration also includes a ticket for the Wendella Sunset Boat Tour. Wrap up the week and be a part of nature’s nightly celebration to watch the sun slowly set behind the city from the tranquil waters of Lake Michigan on a serene cruise, complemented by wine or cocktails. After a busy week, this is the perfect way to relax and enjoy the city.
Stay safe, and we’ll see you at ClueCon in August!
