Before our team arrives in Las Vegas, here are a few updates.
A Humble Thank You
Thank you, everyone. We are truly grateful for the community support each year we have the interpreter fundraiser. We raised enough funds for all of our interpreters! You also helped us raise $2,000 over our goal! The board has decided to store that money away for next year's fund. We would like to thank our sponsors for their donations as well:
- Deaf Services for Pal Alto
- Trusted Sec
We will be reaching out to our sponsors about the next step in their sponsorship perks after con. We will be updating with statuses of individual perks and what not after the conference. Again, we did are truly humbled by the kindness, generosity, and support this community can show.
For all Deaf and HoH attendees who would like to utilize our interpreting services, we have a Slack channel to request an ASL Interpreter. This will us coordinate coverage during the conference. Sign up for our Slack channel here During the day, ASL interpreting services will be from about 9:30 am to about 5:00 pm. We'll have a break for dinner and have two to three interpreters for night coverage from 8:00 pm until about 12:00 am.
The Meet Up!
Reminder that the DEAF CON Meet Up will be held on Saturday 7/29 in the Chillout Lounge on the Promenade level. The Meet Up will begin at noon and will last about an hour. Everyone is welcomed join us. Come hangout and meet some cool people!
We created 30 supporter shirts this year to sell at con. The shirts will be $20 cash and exact change only. We have five shirts per size ranging from small to 4XL. If you would like a shirt, please find Ashley (arose4beni, beni) during the conference for one. She will be selling them during the day from about 9:30 ish (or whenever she gets to con) to about 4:30/5:00 pm. You can probably find her in either the Lockpick, Cryptography, or Hardware Hacking Village.
See you in Vegas!
