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.

Relatively short trip for me, from Portland, Oregon. First timer for me, looking forward to all the exciting activities and people at the event. Am representing the Vedamo Virtual Classroom@Vedamo - Member | Instructure Partner Directory  probably the newest partner with Instructure/Canvas.  If you're interested to learn more, let Svetlana Savova or I know.

Welcome  @fraimondi . You will not be disappointed in what you find at the conference.

Thank you Tammy! If you don't mind me asking, what is your role? Are you

with Canvas, or a community member and oversee this site?

If you hover over her picture/name you can see her role at a university level. She's a fellow Canvas customer like me. The community just promotes friendliness and collaboration.

Like SHEBENEsaid I am just a community member.  I focus on instructional technology and design at my higher ed institution.  I like to be on the community to gain insights on best practices, help others, and learn about new features.

I'll be driving out from Lincoln, NE for my first InstructureCon. Stopping in Fort Morgan to visit my brother on the way out and back Smiley Happy
