Questions asked about HalfStack London.

Where should I stay?

If you're not from London, note that we are within a ten minute walks of several tube stations: Liverpool Street, Aldgate, Aldgate East, Shoreditch High Street, and Whitechapel. The hub by Premier Inn London Spitalfields is the closest hotel, the London Andaz is also nearby, and there are many Airbnb and other hotel options available.

How can you possibly improve on HalfStack 2018?

2018 was an amazing event. Each year we look to bring something new while preserving what we feel makes HalStack an authentic and enjoyable event!

Where are the early bird tickets?

They've already sold out! Get your ticket now to join us at this year's event!

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.

Why does HalfStack cost what it does?

HalfStack delivers an authentic, high-quality experience and provide meals and drinks and have speakers traveling from out of the area. Because we do not compromise on attendee experience, we don't accept some sponsorship offers that ask for things that degrade the attendee experience. We want to make HalfStack inclusive for everyone that wants to attend (until we run out of seats). If you cannot afford our ticket prices and want to attend, we have opportunities for volunteers, students, diversity, and other discounts. Contact us and tell us how we can make sure you can attend HalfStack!
