Faqs

Questions asked about HalfStack at the Shore(ditch) London.

What's the plan with covid-19?

We're planning to hire out the entire venue during the day. Everyone should be prepared to provide proof of vaccination or a recent negative covid test.

Why the new date?

A large web and JS focused conference scheduled their event for our original date, so we moved two days earlier so our attendees and speakers could participate in both events.

Does HalfStack London sell out?

Yes, we love our venue but we're constrained by its size. Get your ticket early to save and avoid disappointment!

Where should I stay?

There are several hotels within walking distance of Cafe 1001, or it's a short walk to several tube lines via Shoreditch High Street, Aldgate, Whitechapel, and Liverpool Street stations.

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!
