We are one week away from RedSnake Philly 2013! In preparation for the
event, I wanted to make a few announcements and address a few logistics.
0. The talks are posted here: http://redsnakeph...
1. Tickets. You need to have a ticket to enter the event. If you did not
acquire a ticket via Ticket Leap, please be respectful and do not come.
There was plenty of time and notification to acquire a ticket. This is
very important as there are safety codes at the venue that we must
comply to. Additionally, our excellent sponsors have provided food,
beer, gifts, etc. for 200 people -- the number of tickets we issued.
2. Caveat on #1 above. If you are a speaker or sponsor, you do not need
a ticket. That being said, if you are a speaker or sponsor and have a
ticket please contact me, Mat, or Angel so that we can void your ticket
and reissue new ones (to help the slackers that didn't get a ticket when
we said they should). NOTE: If you are a speaker, you know who you are.
The "sponsor" thing is a bit grey. You are a sponsor if your company is
listed here: http://redsnakeph... and you are "working
the table," and you are not a PhillyPUG regular. Let me give you a few
examples, just to be clear:
Ex #1. SIG is a sponsor. Zanaya does not need a ticket, while John G.
does. However, Dave R. does not (he is a speaker).
Ex #2. Monetate is a sponsor. Britt does not need a ticket, while Tom J.
does. However, Jeff Persch does not (he is a speaker).
I think you get the point. If you have specific concerns, please contact
me off-list to discuss.
3. According to SEER, there is parking near the Piazza which is just a
short walk from the church.
4. Once in side the church, there are two levels in the venue area. On
the main floor there are pews and a podium just in front of the alter
(where the speakers will speak). Additionally, there is a balcony where
there is more seating capacity than on the main floor. So, during the
talks, you may want to find a seat up there if the pews are filled and
you don't want to stand.
5. We have some awesome sponsors: http://redsnakeph...
Many of them will have tables at the event. Go over to them and talk
with them. Get some corporate swag. Get a new job.
6. There will be beer (some of Mike D's now famous RedSnake Ale and some
commercially brewed stuff). Be responsible. Be smart.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me. I look forward to
seeing all of you next week. Have a great weekend.
