FAQs

Questions asked about HalfStack.

Who runs HalfStack?

HalfStack is primarily run by Dylan Schiemann as a side project, along with passionate local individuals in each community we serve. The general goal is to breakeven or make just enough money to allow us to have the event in additional communities over time.

Why so many HalfStack events?

We wanted to bring HalfStack beyond London to other great JavaScript communities. If you're interested in bringing HalfStack to your city in 2023, let us know!

Does HalfStack include paid vendor pitches?

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.

Do you sell my contact information to sponsors or send annoying emails?

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.
