Portland Code Camp 2014 postponed

Portland Code Camp scheduled for January 11, 2014 has been postponed.

Watch this site for the future date.

This was a difficult decision, and seemed to be the best action for the community.

There were several contributing factors, that together, seemed to work against the timing.

  • Earlier in the year, the primary domain name used by PortlandCodeCamp (.org) was grabbed by what appears to be a Japanese-based domain re-seller. This has caused substantial confusion as that that domain was widely known and used for email. We suspect that has had a deleterious effect on communications with potential presenters.
  • We underestimated the effect that the year-end holiday season would have on suppressing sessions submissions. We concluded that there were insufficient sessions submitted to have a quality event for the community.
