Faqs

Questions asked about HalfStack Vienna.

Is the conference on the 19th or 20th of September?

Some of our early marketing materials listed the 20th, but our preferred venue is only available on the 19th. We're also planning to host some workshops the day after the conference on the 20th.

Will there be workshops?

We are currently planning to have a few workshops on the 20th of September. Workshops require a separate ticket.

Where should I stay?

If you're not from Vienna, note that HalfStack Vienna is near the HbF (main train station). Vienna has many hotels and Airbnb options that are well connected via subways, trains, and buses.

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!
