Dear Zeek Community,
It is our hope that all of you are staying safe and healthy during this uncertain time. We’re all navigating unfamiliar territory together, as the COVID 19 crisis affects every aspect of our lives both personally and professionally.
We all wish we knew what the future might hold for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or more from now. It would make planning for events easier and more efficient; however, that is not the case. While we sincerely hope the world and our daily activities will be back to normal in the fall, we can’t be assured of that.
Given the uncertainty, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel ZeekWeek 2020 in Austin. Rest assured that we are looking at other options to bring the community together as things improve and become more predictable. Those options include a virtual event during the same time frame, and if it’s safe to bring people together, then we will look at holding a smaller event in a different location. However, we won’t know until we get closer to October.
Don’t file away those ZeekWeek talks you were going to pitch!! We will be announcing some new initiatives for you to share your knowledge and bring the community together.
We look forward to seeing you in-person once it is safe to do so. Until then, remember, without you there is no community! Together we are better, whether in-person or online.
Stay Safe and Zeek on!!
The Zeek Leadership Team
