From the webpage:

This Winter, Homegrown Labs presents Clojure Remote—Clojure’s first exclusively Remote conference. Join us anywhere; from your home, your office, or the coffee shop.

Over two days, you’ll join hundreds of other Clojurists online via crowdcast.io to enjoy up to two tracks of beginner to intermediate Clojure talks.

Clojure Remote will be held February 11th and 12th, 2016 from 2:00 PM UTC – 9:00 pm UTC.

The conference will be broadcast via crowdcast.io, where attendees can:

  • View talks live
  • Ask & up-vote questions
  • And chat with fellow attendees.

Clojure Remote attendees will miss:

  • Delays and frustrations of airport security and missed connections
  • Wedging themselves into grade school size airline seats
  • Taxi transportation where drivers speak every language but yours
  • Disease producing dry air in hotels
  • Expenses that could have gone towards new hardware or books

but, for virtual conferences to make progress, sacrifices have to be made. 😉

True, virtual conferences do lack some of the randomness and “press the flesh” opportunities of physical conferences but CS has been slow to take up the advantages of more frequent but shorter virtual or online conferences.
