    Default Business Casual???

    I am going to SenchaConn (my 1st, so I am a senchaconn virgin), in the fairly short email telling me to download the senchaconn app that will tell me everything i need to know about the convention, it mentions the dress is "business casual"

    so my question, what is business casual?

    does that mean:

    * Matching Socks?
    * No embarrassing rips in my jeans?
    * No politically insensitive text on my t-shirts?
    * T-shirts required?

    Cause I am very confused. I am attending a convention to learn more about the Sencha ecosphere and I am not sure why the dress does not say "be comfortable, you are not selling anything, so relax and enjoy"

    Can someone tell me what brand of jeans I should bring with me to be 'business casual'?

    Thanks

    Bruce

    I would have thought that sneakers, jeans, and a button up/collared shirt ought to be OK?

    That's basically "business casual" these days. If you would wear it to work on casual Friday, it's likely to be just fine. We simply don't want anyone to violate our Code of Conduct -- otherwise expect to dress like you would to any other conference.

    It's in the FAQ http://www.senchacon.com/#faq last item in the left column.

    Like Art said, if you wouldn't wear it to work on a casual Friday then it would be fine. What's to be violated? I'd say use your best judgement and be professional. "I hate America" or along the lines like that is likely not a good choice of shirts. Polo shirts, nerd graphic t-shirts, jeans, sneakers are all good choices. I'd stay away from jeans with tears in them but that's more just me, I'd want to look presentable.

    We want you you to be comfortable and have fun. We aren't too strict on what you look like, just don't want offensive type stuff that would make someone else uncomfortable.

    I'm interested in meeting you face to face Bruce. If you see me, come say hi!

    Default Wow, this is being taken very seriously!

    I hope you Do realize that my comments re: business casual are "tongue-in-cheek" However, not to worry, since I let my friend DILBERT advise me on important business issues like dress code:
