B-SidesDC 2017

Registration provides you entry to the main conference tracks. During registration you will be able to buy tickets for 1) the con, 2) the kids' con which will be held on Saturday of the main con, and 3) training classes. You must have a conference ticket in order to use the kids' con tickets or training tickets. If you do not have a con ticket, you will need to buy one to use your kids or training ticket. We will remind you of this many times, so saying you didn't see it won't do you any good. We believe the new ticket system for training should reduce the concerns and confusion that surrounded previous years' attempts. Additionally, if you would like to attend the event, but are a student and/or have some economic hardship that you cannot afford our minimal registration fees, please contact the organizers.

The second round of registration opens on September 1st, 2017 at 00:00:01 EDT (midnight).

Registration will held in two sessions, plus available at the door. The opening round will be held on August 15th, and a more limited number of tickets will be available on September 1st. Your third, and final option, is to purchase a ticket, based on remaining space availability, at the door the day of the event.

In other words, if you didn't get a ticket? Stop by at Saturday registration if you're in town. It's likely we'll have room. While certain training will likely be unavailable at that time, there's plenty of other options, including two great tracks and several villages.

Previously...Registration opened August 15, 2013 and sold 400 tickets in less than 24 hours. A second, more limited, and marginally more expensive round was made available on September 1, 2013.
