So, where are you coming from???


Each year I love to start up this thread to see where everyone is coming from. Instructurecon has become such a great international event over the past few years.

4 years ago I attended my first and I was one of only three from Australia. Last year saw over a dozen.

And it is not just Australia. Now they come from all over Europe, Asia, the Middle East and even Canada (I was informed that it is NOT a northern US state or America's Top Hat last visit).

So, where are you from? Are you road tripping in from the east coast? Flying in from the west? Travelling by husky from the north or swimming in from over the seas?

This thread gives a chance to not only share your port of origin but also will allow you to connect with others from the same region. Maybe you can also connect up at Instructureconcarn and make some new connections.

I will start, for those who don't already know I am based in Sydney Australia (you know, the country where everything is trying to kill you) and have been a long time Canvas user, advocate and now staff member.


Looking forward to reconnecting with all those I have met over the years and keen to meet all those I haven't.

OK, now it is your turn. Post your origin here and tag 3 others to do the same. Let's see just how many we can get here.

This is my first time and really looking forward to it.

I will be coming with my co-worker from Duke University, The Fuqua School of Business, Durham, NC.  I've heard great things about instructurecon  and am looking forward to making some connections with some other business school peeps!

This is my first time to Colorado Smiley Happy, and I'm planning on staying through until Aug 4th with my hubby (he's flying out at the end of the conference), looking for some good ideas of what to see/do in the Eagle/Vail/Aspen area....and GO!

Hello Canvas users!

I'm a newbie from Denver, Colorado, a short drive away from Keystone, I've got to go! I discovered Canvas through TCM's Mad About Musical's, and am a learning junkie. It's THRILLING to have discovered the huge learning community at Camvas! I gotta find out the "when". I hope I'm not too late!

Never too late!  If you are traveling solo, use #solopandas on twitter to meet up with others throughout the event.  And DO NOT go home Thursday night.   Just'll be sorry if you do.  Smiley Wink

I'm signed up. Yayyy!

This will be my first time at Instructurecon and I'll be coming from Seattle, Washington.  I am also waiting to meet my team who will be attending, and I'm excited to meet some new people in Colorado.

Hi  @dpurcell 

I am also out of Washington. Which school are you representing?

I am part of the state CTC system, and actually work at three different colleges - one as the LMS Admin, and two as adjunct online faculty.


Hey Kelley- I just joined the Federal Way Public Schools as an Instructional Technology Facilitator. I worked with several of the Colleges in the state in my former role. It would be great to meet you!
