TRUCEConf is a two-day conference. The goal is to help our community heal, through learning from others outside our industry and having an open dialogue and on how we can be better humans to each other in the world of tech. TRUCE stands for trust, respect, unity, compassion, and equality, and we'll be working together in an open and safe environment to shift our culture in this direction.

TRUCEConf has a Code of Conduct that attendees should read prior to the conference. We'll expect you to adhere to these simple rules for adult behavior.

Planning for TRUCEConf is ongoing. If you have suggestions for how to make this event more awesome and productive, feel free to contact us at info at truceconf.com. You can also follow us at @truceconf for updates.

Schedule:

Where?
Tentatively, we are scheduled for the Harriet Tubman Theater, in the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, OH, USA.




When?
September, 2014


Where Does the Money Go?
Venue rental, catering, A/V travel costs for the speakers, and speaker fees for the invited speakers. If we cover the basic costs of the conference, we will be able to do other things such as video streaming and providing scholarships for those who are not able to afford the cost of a ticket.

IMPORTANT: What if we don't reach our goal?
If we don't reach our goal, we will still host a conference, but it will be much, much smaller. We will use whatever funds we receive to bring together a much smaller group of people.


Other Ways You Can Help

(A Little About Me)
In case you're wondering who I am, I've been in the tech industry a long time. I started as a web developer back in 1997 when HTML3 was a thing. I gravitated to PHP where I was the co-founder of PHPWomen, and active member of #phpc, as well as my local PHP User Group. I have since become an author, a mentor, and a speaker, and for the last several years I've worked as a community manager. I currently work on the community team at GitHub, which is just about the best job in the universe. Also, I think you're an awesome human for reading this far.




We can do this together. <3

I don't know if I'll come, but I absolutely support toning down the vitriol in the discussion. Thank you.
