Things you'll need to know the day of the conference

...and don't forget about the extra-curricular activities

We can't wait to see you in Austin on June 11. Make sure you get there with enough time to get registered and have a few breakfast tacos (sponsored by Yammer) before the talks start. There are quite a few Alamo Drafthouses in Austin, so don't get confused - we are at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz on 6th St. in downtown Austin. Street parking is free on the weekends.

You'll have easy access to power (courtesy of nodejitsu) and plentiful Wifi (sponsored by Headspring). Lunch is provided (thanks to Mozilla!). The Alamo Drafthouse has table space for everyone and you'll have table service at lunch. Also, all day long, if you'd like some local beer, trade in some drink tickets (sponsored by Strobe) for a pint and responsibly relax while you learn.

Don't forget to join us for a Beer.js drinkup (sponsored by HP/Palm) at The Gingerman (301 Lavaca St.) from 5-8pm on Friday night before the conference. You'll need to check in at a marked table to get on the conference tab. Then feel free to go out with friends or get a good night's sleep so we can get started bright and early on Saturday morning.

After the conference we'll be having a party at Buffalo Billiards (sponsored by Bazaarvoice). Conference badges will be required. Light snacks will be provided and Texas Beer will be on the house. The party will start at 7:30 and the bar will be open 'til 10:30 - after that we'll hit the town. Yammer and Mozilla have teamed up to help you learn the city a bit, too. Details at the party.
