There are no ID requirements for theevent itself, but the security of the venue within the university may require an ID and your ticket for allowing you into the buildings. Attendees must be 18+, but but please contact me for cases when younger developer/ attendee is ccompanied with their parents. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? De Montfort University is only few minutes from Leicester city centre and so public transport should be sufficient to get you to the venue. Please do not bring your car unless if you are travelling from another city. There are no parking spaces in the University but the list of local parkings are here. What can/can't I bring to the event? Please bring along your laptop, chargers and mobile devices plus development software you normally use. There will be PCs in the labs, but it still helps to have developer laptops. It will be your own responsibility to look after your personal devices and the event cannot accept any responsibility. Where can I contact the organiser with any questions? Please contact Samad at firstname.lastname@example.org Is my registration/ticket transferrable? No, but if there is anyone else who wants to attend they could regsiter themselves and there is no need for email invitations. Can I update my registration information? Yes and please do. We need to have information about your skills and interests to be able to build the groups beforehand. Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? Yes, please. The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay? We expect this not to happen. Please let the oragisners know if this is the case.
