Announcing virtual conference dates and ticket sales

As we announced, Write the Docs Portland 2020 will be a virtual conference.

We decided to keep the dates as previously announced: the writing day is on Sunday, August 9, 9am-5pm PST, and the main conference days are on Monday/Tuesday, August 10-11, 9am-5pm PST.

Ticket sales will re-open on Monday, May 25th. Check out the tickets page for prices. Your virtual ticket includes:

  • Live streaming of all talks (available for ticket-holders only)
  • Q&A with speakers after each talk (may not be available for all speakers)
  • Access to the conference chat with all other attendees, speakers and sponsors
  • Access to the writing day
  • The virtual job fair

If you have chosen to convert your previously bought ticket into a virtual pass, or a pre-order for the virtual Portland 2020 conference, you will receive further details by e-mail within the next week.

We are aiming to include all our speakers in the virtual conference, but still confirming their availability.

Our opportunity grant will also re-open together with ticket sales in a modified format. Details will be published next week.

We have drafted a new online sponsorship prospectus for the conference. We are hoping our existing sponsors will be excited about the new benefits, and are open to new sponsorship requests for this event.
