This decision has been carefully considered and we are appreciate the support from the community. The "McLean" metro stop along the silver line is the perfect transportation option for this event. There will be ample volunteers and signage to get attendees to the correct location. The DevFestDC program team are looking into providing some "free" transportation options (no promises) and will be providing more information as the event approaches.
