Registration Shipment and Game Night


Our registration shipments have been sent. You should expect your package to arrive through the magic of the USPS at the address entered into your Eventbrite registration by the end of the week (4/24). Please remember that you must bring your badge to the event, as that is the ticket for entry into the event and the movie screening.

UPDATE: We’ve had a handful of reports from people whose registration materials were missing the badge. If your shipment was incomplete, or you didn’t get yours, please email us.

We are hosting a board game night on Stir Trek Eve, April 30. Come share a night with the speakers, sponsors, organizers, and attendees of this year’s Stir Trek event. We will be at the Columbus Area Boardgaming Society‘s venue starting at 6pm, and you can reserve your spot now. There will be food trucks, board games, and plenty of time to socialize outside of the conference chaos. Make sure you grab a ticket before they’re gone.

Speakers Assemble!


Our speaker selection committee finished voting on all of the submissions over the weekend in our first ever anonymous selection process. Our committee members did not know the identities of the submitting speakers except in the case of tie breaks. We try to change things up each year to improve the quality of our conferences, and this year’s excellent schedule really shows this. If you have any feedback about the process, we’d love to hear from you.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, March 11th at 2 PM EST. We would have liked to use Pi Day like in previous years, especially this year, but it falls on a Saturday. Make sure to celebrate on 3/14/15 at 9:26am! Also, remember that you can go straight to Eventbrite to buy tickets.

Also, our Eventbrite transaction timeout is 45 minutes. That means that even if the event is showing as sold out it is likely that tickets may become available every 45 minutes or so due to timed out or abandoned ticket sales.

Open Call for Speakers


Call for speaker submissions is open for Stir Trek: Ultron Edition!

We are looking for both technical and non-technical sessions pertaining to web, mobile, and client application development, testing, quality, security, and methodologies. When in doubt, submit it anyway!

You can submit your topics on our Speakers page.

Sessions are 60 minutes in length. Like previous events, we will have 5 sessions in 8 tracks. Full disclosure, open call does not guarantee that all chosen speakers will have been submitted in this manner – we do send out a few direct invitations to established speakers.

Speaker submission for Stir Trek: Ultron Edition closes at 11:59 PM on Wednesday, February 18th. Speakers will be selected and notified either way by March 1st.

Stir Trek’s movie for 2015 will be Avengers: Age of Ultron and will be held on 5/1/15. Tickets will go on sale March 11th.

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!

What is Stir Trek?

Stir Trek is a one-day conference focused on teaching software developers, and others in the industry, the latest and greatest in technologies, techniques, and tools. The full day of content is always concluded with a private screening of a blockbuster film on its opening day. See our about Stir Trek page for more details.


What Do I Get

Our goal is to bring you significantly greater value than our ticket price. You'll get:


Transfers & Refunds

Plans change and we get that. If you find out your can't attend, you can transfer your ticket yourself through Eventbrite. Alternatively, send an email to registration@stirtrek.com and we'll get you squared away. We can transfer your registration or request a refund up until midnight EST on Tues April 14, 2015.

Please note that this is a change from previous years. This year we are mailing registration materials in order to avoid long lines on the morning of the event. If you wish to transfer your registration after the 14th you can give or sell the registration materials that you received, effectively transferring your registration. (Selling your registration for more than it costs is not cool, and will prevent you from attending in the future.)

Accommodations

Please check our Location page for details on suggested hotels and group rates.

Great for Teams

Have you had a team building exercise, and it was ... not exciting? How about an event that is both a learning opportunity and a fun time for your entire team? Stir Trek is exactly that, at a much lower expense than other team events. We will register blocks of attendees for you, and you provide the names later at your convenience.
