Thank You


We would like to thank each and everyone involved with the Winter Soldier Edition event. The event was educational and a ton of fun!

Thank you to all of our volunteers for making the event a success. Also, thank you to our attendees for braving the rain and long lines to help keep our developer community awesome. A special thanks goes out to our speakers. Last, but most definitely not least, a big thanks goes out to our sponsors.

You can find materials for our presentations at our 2014 Stir Trek Git Hub repository.

We’re all looking forward to 2015 and Stir Trek: Ultron Edition!

Registration


We wanted to remind everyone that you can go straight to Eventbrite to buy tickets.

Also, our Eventbrite transaction timeout is 40 minutes. That means that it is likely that tickets may become available every 40 minutes due to timed out ticket sales.

Stir Trek: Winter Soldier Edition


Tickets will go on sale for Stir Trek: Winter Soldier Edition on Thursday, February 6th, 2014 at 2 PM EST.

In the past tickets have sold out in a manner of minutes and the massive rush of people spamming their F5 key has taken down our web site. While that won’t happen this year, you may want to bookmark our Stir Trek: Winter Soldier Edition Eventbrite page and go directly there to buy your tickets.

Open Call Closes Soon

We also wanted to remind everyone that our open call for speaker submission closes at 11:59 PM on Thursday, January 23rd. Speakers will be selected and at least a partial schedule will be posted within a few days of the ticket sale date.

We’re Moving!

Another big change is that we are changing venues. We will be at Rave Motion Pictures near Polaris Mall in Columbus, Ohio this year. This lets us expand to 1500 attendees and should be a great new location!
