hello there from over the pond (north america) :wave:

i have some concerns about the nixcon 2024 europe situation and the ability of people in north america to attend - specifically those of us with family, work, and other obligations who need to travel with significant time cost and expense - we might have a much higher obstacle this year to attend than in previous years if we don’t get dates/details sufficiently far in advance

the earlier we know about nixcon (dates & location) the more chances we have to attend

i wouldn’t presume to ask anything of the current team who has spent time on this as i appreciate the time they have put in up to this point and their need for a mental break…

…but i would wonder out loud if there are other people who might want to take up the challenge of organizing nixcon 2024 europe instead :thinking:

ping to @domenkozar, @ron, @matthewcroughan, and @DavHau who have been involved with a number of cons/sprints and might know some people interested

i always have such a great time at these things so a big thank you to everyone who has been involved in the past and might get involved in the future :man_bowing:
