April 17, 2020 Update
Due to the uncertain situation regarding COVID-19 we have decided to transition CascadiaJS 2020 to a fully on-line virtual event.
This decision was not made lightly, but ultimately it did not feel right to continue to sell tickets and ask people to book flights and lodging for a large, in-person gathering this year.
While we were all looking forward to seeing you in Oregon, we are excited about making CascadiaJS available to more people, especially those who might not have been able to join us this year because of the cost or the logistics involved in getting to Sunriver. We have already started to think about how to translate the magic of CascadiaJS to a virtual format and how to take advantage of technology to deliver experiences we could never have done in person.
Please see below for an updated FAQ.
