Due to increased awareness of COVID-19 and the risk it poses to our participants, family, and friends, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the physical aspects of The Diana Initiative 2020. However, instead of cancelling the conference entirely, we’ve decided to go virtual.

August 21 & 22, 2020

The Diana Initiative Virtual Conference

“Breaking Boundaries – Byte by Byte”

[Keynote Announcement]

Featuring fan favorites from past events with a new twist:

2 Speaking Tracks, both days
Streaming right to your device, watch and interact from the comfort of home.

Maker Village
Hey #BadgeLife: We’ll be building DIY Blinky Badges – [here’s a shopping list] so you can get your components early.
There may also be some other maker-related presentations.

Capture The Flag
An all-ages and all skill levels event spanning both days. Beginners Workshop will be presented before the start of the competition.
