The GopherCon organizers just sent out a mail informing the community that the event that was planned for September at the Dolphin Resort in Orlando has been rescheduled to October 6-8 at the Marriott Marquis at McCormick Place in Chicago!

As you are likely well aware, on Monday, March 28th, Governor DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education Act, dubbed the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, and on April 14th, a law banning abortion at 15 weeks was enacted. In light of these recent events, Gopher Academy can no longer support the notion of convening in Florida. While the financial and legal repercussions are still unclear, we feel a strong moral and ethical obligation to ensure that the location of GopherCon aligns with the values of our community.

Turns out that there was already a post on the GopherAcademy blog about this last week…
