Day of Arrival

Sunday, August 11th

Airport Shuttles Begin
All attendees are encouraged to fly into San Diego International Airport where our Airport Shuttles will take you North to Carlsbad, CA. Each bus will have the community JS logo clearly displayed on the bus, so be sure to look for that! If you find a bus with the @horse_js logo, we have no idea where that bus will go and leave it up to the reader to decide their own course of action. If you are close enough to drive and are not parking overnight, hotel parking is free. Check-in to the hotel, pre-register for the conference, get settled, and get ready for an amazing conference!
Conference Registration Opens
We'll be set up right next to the Hotel's front desk so that you can pre-register for the conference at your convenience. Is the hotel check-in line long? Come register! Is our registration line too long? Check-in to the hotel! Are both lines long? Hang out by the pool or go explore the hotel and come back later!
Welcome Reception
After a long day of travel, it is time to head to the lobby for an evening welcome reception and social gathering. Meet old friends, make new friends, and enjoy some fine refreshments and appetizers! You will need to be registered and have your JSConf US badge on your person. If you haven't registered yet, we will have staff on-hand available to get you checked-in!
Starry Night Poolside Campfires
Whether you just need a break from the dinner or are looking for deep conversation, stop by the evening campfires located on the upper-level of the Edge Pool. Grab a spot around the natural gas firepits and enjoy some enlightened conversation. Make plans with your fellow attendees for the next day, or plan your space mission to the moon and back!
