Bitnorth is run by invitation. Because we can only welcome roughly 40 people, and want to keep the content and attendees fresh, we spend a lot of time working on getting new people together. Simple math means that some people won’t return.
We struggle with keeping the event open, accessible, and diverse while preserving the format, something we’ve written about elsewhere. It isn’t easy, and every year we get mails from past attendees wondering why they didn’t get an invite to return.
If you want to come, the best thing to do is let us know, or find an alumnus—there are now over 200—and tell them so.
