Registration + Session Building | 8am – 10am
Get there early folks, our schedule board is smaller and our attendees are larger (in number, not necessarily in girth) than ever before. It’s sure to be a high-paced morning of carb-loading, caffeinating and geeking out.

No, seriously, get there early. Some of the best meeting and greeting and excitement is in the two hours before we kick off. You’ll get to weigh in on which sessions should go to the biggest rooms, watch the day develop before your very eyes, and get prime picks on breakfast foods. Don’t rock up at 10:15, you’ll just be disoriented, and sad that there are only raisin bagels and garlic cream cheese left.

After an informal welcome in the forum, we’ll kickoff the event by sharing some good-to-know facts and logistics. Quick, but super useful, so be there!

AM Sessions | 10:15am – 1:30pm [4 sessions: 10:15-11, 11:05-11:50, 11:55-12:40, 12:45-1:30]
Get going! Sessions are 45min long, with 5min breaks in-between so you can get to your next room. The first session starts promptly at 10:15am.

Lunch | 1:30 – 2:45pm
Lunch is on your own. This is a golden chance to grab those awesome new potential collaborators/compadres and pow-wow over tasty University City eats of your choosing.

PM Sessions | 2:45pm – 5:10pm [3 sessions: 2:45-3:30, 3:35-4:20, 4:25-5:10]
Immediately following the final session there will be closing remarks in the main auditorium. Super important, please make sure you come down to get your afterparty logistics, and let us know how the day went.

Afterparty | 7pm – ??
Join us at our favorite bar in town, National Mechanics, to celebrate in true Philly style. We’re buying you booze and light bites, and even more awesome details are forthcoming! Get excited.
