Into the Box 2019
It was a huge success.
  • 6 well attended workshops the day prior to the main conference
    We had approx 70% of the attendees attending or presenting or helping with the workshops.
  • 2 Ortus Keynotes since we have so many products, we needed two keynotes, and we still ran over time. These were live streamed, and those who were not at INTO THE BOX enjoyed watching from afar.
  • 2 days with 2 tracks, resulting in 28 amazing sessions from 8 Ortus Team Members and 15 community speakers
  • We upped our Audio Video game this year, purchasing a lot of new equipment, including a big mixer. Brad was in heaven playing with that. We will be editing the videos as fast as we can, and those will be available for purchase very soon.
  • Happy Box was a huge hit as usual, great food, open bar, and the Mariachi band delivered. We had several Ortus and Community members even join the band and sing a few songs. We might have to release a Happy Box video to show off those pipes.
  • At HappyBox we even took a little time to sneak in our first episode of the Modernize of Die - CFML News Edition. We live streamed on Twitter and will be releasing the podcast onto iTunes soon,and Youtube as well.
