We're excited to announce that we’re back and keeping the DCC community and connections going for our seventh year! We’re still all collectively fighting against COVID-19 by keeping our distance and our motto from the start has never been more true, we’re #bettertogether when working towards a common cause.
Dates and times
The event will be July 21st and 22nd from 9am - 2pm PST to make it as easy as possible for people to attend in real-time so you can interact with the speakers, sponsors, and each other! Don’t worry if you can’t make it for the entire time, all paid attendees will receive all the recorded talks, slides, and event extras.
You’ll watch talks from:
- Andy Welfle
- Ariba Jahan
- David Dylan Thomas
- Lisa Maria Marquis
- And more... Our call for speakers is open!
2020 was really difficult and 2021, while a little brighter, is still fairly difficult and we understand that, so we’re keeping the conference registration fee to just $200 Canadian (approx $150 USD) for regular attendees and $100 for students. Along with that we’ve got a few different discounts folks for non-profits, government, and educational institutions.
We’re also bringing back the DCC Fund to provide as many tickets as possible for people in under-represented groups to attend at no cost. If your company would like to support the fund please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you'd like to get inolved. Last year we were able to send over 80 people to the event as part of the fund! Help us continue to break down barriers so more people can attend.
Look for more updates from our team over the next few months on speaker announcements, extra events, and general design & content goodness. We can’t wait to see you all online in July!
