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.
Adam, do you really need a ride? We will be departing Denver area and heading up to Keystone on Monday if you do.
email@example.com, when are you heading back to the airport? We got a shuttle ride for my Mom to get to Keystone, but are still working out the details of getting her back to Denver on Friday afternoon. Ultimately we can take her, but if you’re headed that way and have an empty seat... 😉
I have a very EARLY private shuttle going back to the airport Friday morning. As of now its just me so I have room for 4.
Let me get back to you in a bit. Trying to change our return flight home to a different time, as I don't want to get into BWI past midnight and then be at therapy at 8am.
Hi again, firstname.lastname@example.org!
You will likely find me in the Community Booth most times, most days. Okay, maybe not "most" times, but many times throughout the days.
I'm easy to recognize, I look nothing like the 30-something, Mountain Dew Crew, young and intelligent folks typically found there. Oh yeah, I also typically look like a walking Instructure advertisement with a Canvas T-shirt, hat, coffee container, maybe a Canvas bag of some type and jacket. If there were Canvas pants, shoes and under garments given as swag I would likely be wearing those too, but I ain't showing you my undies - just sayin'!
email@example.com, thanks for the offer! Unfortunately Mom won't be ready until Friday afternoon. Hubby and I are doing the Unconference Friday morning and need Mom to watch the kiddos until we're finished. 🙂
Hello all, I'll be coming from Las Vegas with carroll-ccsd and firstname.lastname@example.org from Clark County School District. This will be my sixth InstructureCon but my first InstructureCarn. Can't wait to get to walking around getting my #stepsforbeth and hoping to see (tagging): 16247, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, jwray, email@example.com and lpkatz.
You'll see me at the board game night for sure!
