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 acceptable. Please wear layers; conference rooms tend to get cold.

Are there any additional networking or add-on events I can attend?

Yes! Tuesday, June 25 will feature two co-located events (additional registration required) and Capture the Flag will once again return to CloudNativeSecurityCon 2024.

Will you have vegan / gluten-free / dairy-free / Kosher / Halal, etc. meals available onsite?

We account for a portion of attendees that need vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free meals – these are typically readily available at all snack breaks, lunches, and receptions. No special order is required and you can indicate your preference/need during registration.

For those that need a special order meal such as Kosher or Halal, we do ask that you contact us so that we may place these orders in advance of the event. Most catering companies are unable to prepare/order these types of meals on the day they are needed as they are made in offsite kitchens. Note that we are also a peanut-free event. If you have another severe food allergy, please contact us. We will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your need(s).

What is the policy on animals at the event?

Service animals are permitted.
