When is the conference?
Block out Thursday October 3rd and Friday October 4th immediately. We’ve tried to balance a number of concerns in picking the date, but it’s impossible not to overlap with something these days. Our apologies/condolences if you have a conflict.
Where is it?
The conference will be held in downtown real Portland, which you may know as Portland, Maine.
Why is it in Portland?
Because it’s an incredible town with amazing beer.
Isn’t it hard to get there?
Nope. We have an airport and everything. Flights are pretty similar to Boston’s. Which you can drive from, incidentally.
Who should attend?
It is highly recommended that technologists that like the best beers from all over the world attend.
Is this another damned social media conference?
Negative. Think more along the lines of GitHub’s motto: “social coding.” Our speakers will explore how social trends can change the way we build and use technology, and how technology in turn can change the way we socialize.
When should I plan to arrive/depart?
If you’re able, plan to arrive the night before (Wed, 10/2) the conference: we’ll be hosting a pre-conference event which will include – obviously – good beer. The conference will be all day Thursday, with keynotes, sessions, breakouts and beer. At the conclusion of the event, you’re going to need to stay over: we’ll be hosting a multi-course beer tasting and dinner. You will be treated to nothing less than the best beers from countries all over the world, many of which you cannot get anywhere else in the US.
I may be interested in sponsorship: who do I contact?
Great, there are several left. Contact Juliane Leary (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more info about getting your brand in front of some of the best developers in the world.
I have other questions, where should I ask them?
We created the Monktoberfest Beer Hall just for that occasion. Have at it.
