No, never. Occasionally a company that has a talk accepted also chooses to sponsor HalfStack, but we have a strict policy decoupling sponsorships from speakers.
Never. We will send you a few emails with information about the event, and one email after the event with follow-up information. Beyond that, if you want to hear from us again, you may opt-in to our monthly HalfStack newsletter.
Due to COVID-19, all in-person indoor HalfStack events originally scheduled from March 2020 were postponed indefinitely and we're in the process of cautiously reopening.
COVID-19 refund policy: Full refunds ( less any non-refundable credit card processing fees ) are available up to 7 days prior to a scheduled in-person event. If you wake up ill, stay home and we'll credit you with a ticket for a future event.
