Where do I pick up my name badge?

Badge pick-up will be located in the Stratocaster Suite Corridor on the 3rd floor. Make sure you bring your ID and registration confirmation with you when you pick up your badge.

Name badges must be worn at all times and cannot be shared with other attendees.

What is the recommended attire?

There is no set dress code and, like many open source events, attendees will dress in a range, from jeans to suits. Our recommendation is business casual; jeans are absolutely acceptable. Please wear layers; conference rooms have a tendency to get cold.

Will the sessions be recorded?

Yes! All sessions will be recorded and uploaded to the DPDK Project YouTube channel post-event so they are freely accessible to anyone, anywhere.

How do I access a speaker’s slides after the conference?

Any session slides provided by speakers will be added to the event schedule as they are received. While we encourage all speakers to share their slides, there may be instances where slides are not made available.
