Team Business[edit]

...October Offsite?

October in Portland[edit]

  • Pros:
    • Next to TechConf
    • Greg's flight covered
  • Cons:
    • Early in the fiscal year
    • Greg has a 2 week long trip


November in Cheap east coast city[edit]

  • Pros
    • No double length trips for anyone
  • Cons
    • Independent, no cost savings, but that's probably OK
    • Still kinda early in the fiscal year

January in SF/Bay area[edit]

  • Pros
    • Next to AllHands
    • Flights are covered
    • Right before/during Annual Planning
  • Cons
    • Right before/during Annual Planning
    • Long trip (1.5 - 2 weeks) for most people
      • Maybe there's a Tech All Hands happening making this worse?
