First up, the big thing this week is NERD Summit 2021!
Read More February 15th – 21st
In 2021 we will be virtual again, but are changing the format.
Friday (3/19) will be a normal day of sessions – presentations given by speakers.
Saturday (3/20) will be open discussion sessions, which are commonly called “BOFs” ( Birds of a Feather), people coming together to discuss a topic of interest. These meetings will have a leader who will structure the discussion with 3 or so discussion questions around the topic to be discussed.
Sunday (3/21) will be a Training Day – an opportunity for people to come together and learn from each other. More info coming soon.

Please remain the exact same amount of cautious, because there’s still a pandemic raging. Don’t do things that aren’t necessary. Don’t go out to a crowded bar or restaurant. Keep your excursions to the necessary stuff like picking up food. If you can work from home, keep working from home. Wear a mask whenever you’re going out. We understand that a lot of people don’t have a choice about how exposed they are. People need to work to survive. It’s because of that if you DO have the option, you need to do your part to reduce risks as much as possible.
