We had a great time at Structure and AWS Summit West, but we're getting back to our roots and heading North for two great events. First, our very own Wes Beary will be [presenting about fog](http://www.oscon.com/oscon2011/public/schedule/detail/18326) at [OSCON](http://www.oscon.com/oscon2011) July 27 in Portland, OR. If you'll be there too, be sure to give Wes a shout. If you're able to and track him down, you might be able to snag some fog swag. Then, we're heading up to [Cascadia RubyConf](http://cascadiarubyconf.com/) July 29-30 in Seattle. The event is going to be radical, and it will be held right on the waterfront in beautiful Seattle --[get your tickets](https://cascadiaruby.eventwax.com/cascadia-ruby-conf/register) to attend, or hop on the [sponsor bandwagon](http://cascadiarubyconf.com/prospectus) before the event sells out. Sales end July 25. We couldn't be prouder of our own Shane Becker and his partner in organization, Ben Bleything, for putting together this awesome event. The slate of speakers includes such luminaries as Jim "Big Tiger" Remsik and Rich Kilmer, and Chad Fowler of Living Social. Finally, we'll also be in Tokyo for [JRubyKaigi](http://jrubykaigi.org/2011/) July 15 and [RubyKaigi](http://rubykaigi.org/2011/en) July 16-18, and then heading to our nation's fine capital for [JRuby Conf](http://jrubyconf.com/) August 3-5. We're cosponsoring JRubyConf again this year with our partner, EdgeCase Software, and LinkedIn. Keep your eye on @jrubyconf for details as they emerge!
