Pre-conference Social

On Friday night we're having socials both in-person and remote. For both events, this is a great chance to meet with other attendees and get familiar with the conference platform.

For the in-person social, you can also enjoy food and pick up your badge and swag here to skip the line on Saturday morning. These events are free, but spaces are limited - please make sure to update your registration if you wish to attend. The in-person social runs from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM PST, and the remote one from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM PST. More information about the social is available on our website: Socials

Sprints are back in-person and online. This is a great opportunity to work on open source projects side-by-side with maintainers or hack on your latest personal project. In-person sprints are in the space at Kane Hall @ University of Washington, and are free to attend. Space is limited, so make sure you include sprints in your registration.

Lightning Talks

We're kicking off Sunday's program with in-person lightning talks. These talks are just 5 minutes each, which makes them great for:

  • a small topic
  • first-time speakers
  • testing out a piece of a larger talk
  • promoting a project you're hosting at sprints
