Information for ApacheCon Attendees
"ApacheCon" is a very technical conference, with plenty of business mixed in - more so every year. While you will see some attendees walking down the hall IRC'ing on their open laptops, many other attendees are just carrying a notepad. There's something for everyone!
Please be sure to explore the official website for special events and BOF sessions, which are held every night, except for Friday.
Laptop users take note: while we make every effort to provide power throughout the conference (US - 120volts) there are limits to how many power strips we can safely plug into the conference center's outlets. Wired network access will be provided in selected areas and in an On-line Lounge, but wireless networking is the preferred way to go. Our wireless networking volunteers (experts from similar conferences) will ensure plenty of browsing bandwidth throughout the conference.

Hotel guests: if you registered for the Special Conference package (where you register for both the conference and the hotel in the room block), please note: your in-room wired ethernet access is free. Simply plugin your laptop, hit any website, and when the Westin "Get Connected" screen comes up select the 24 hour pass. It lists a $14.95 charge, which you should accept. All charges for attendees at the Westin in the room block will be waived on the final bill, so you won't be charged.
