The Sencha Community Days will start on Monday, 11th May and end on Thursday, 14th May.
The official conference language is english. Exceptions prove the rule: Thus, we’ve marked each session and workshop with a language label, which is shown in the upper right corner of the session description or in the schedule table on our homepage.
Workshops and pre-conference trainings are BYOD – a laptop is required.
During the main conference, we want to create a campus atmosphere where you can hop from one talk to another and take insights and ideas over to the next session. We want to inspire you and we want you to be creative – by providing short and subsequent bursts of information. If you have to decide between a workshop and a session, we suggest you try to get a seat at the workshop first since registrations are limited.
We want the instructors to be as comfortable as possible with the number of their workshop attendees – and make sure they are able to take care of each and every one of you.
There is a garage available at the event venue. Additional parking spots are availble around the hotel, but it'd be probably easier if you use the garage.
The Deutsche Bahn sends their high speed trains (ICE) as well as their not-so-fast counterparts (RB, RE, IC) directly to the main station in Karlsruhe. For getting a train ticket, you can order them online by visiting https://www.bahn.com/en/view/index.shtml. If you’re travelling with an ICE/IC, make sure you also opt for seat reservations. Also, patience is often needed when travelling with Deutsche Bahn since their trains are often too late, too early or not coming at all. Sadly, this is not a joke. Delays from 10 – 60 minutes during the roush hour are not uncommon.
If you’re travelling with a plane to Germany, you can either go to Airport Stuttgart (STR) or to Airport Frankfurt (FRA). Both airports are relatively close to Karlsruhe and if you’re getting a rental car, you should have no problems to reach Karlsruhe in a short time (see above). However, when you continue your trip using the train, we recommend that you pick FRA as the destination since it has convenient access to a train station directly at the airport. There is an ICE going from Frankfurt Airport directly to Karlsruhe without the need to switch trains. For further informations, refer to the airport’s webpage at https://www.frankfurt-airport.com/en.html and make sure you pick your train connection at https://www.bahn.com/en/view/index.shtml (see above for more information on train connections)
Lunch, coffee, all snacks and drinks are included in the ticket price. Also the drinks and buffet at the conference party are included.
