Important Information

https://speedcon.eu/img/logoa.png

For most of you this is probably not a surprise, but it is about time to give a proper update.
We took a little bit of a pause time to observe the situation to make the best prediction, and it's about time to give a decision update.

SpeedCon 2021 will given with current perspective absolutely not be possible as a normal on-site event. cirBlech
So we hereby want to announce that like last year we will hold a online event instead at the same date. (cut short to Friday/Saturday/Sunday)

Please join our Discord to stay up2date.

Started by: FPaulFPaul

(edited: )

As hopefully all of you are in our Discord you propably allready know the news.

Due to the ongoing SARS-CoV-2 crisis we also couldn't proceed our event as planned and had to cancel SpeedCon 2020 as an on-site event.

Whether or not it can take place at a later date is totally unclear.

We are currently looking into possibly holding a online marathon as a replacement.
