DjangoCon US 2015 Sprints

DjangoCon US 2015 Sprints

Sept. 1, 2015 by Anna Ossowski

We are thrilled to announce that our DjangoCon US sprints this year will be held at the Google Fiber Space in Austin!

We’d like to thank the Google Fiber Space Austin team for making their space available to us and for working with us on organizing the sprints.

The Google Fiber Space is a great location in the heart of downtown Austin that can host up to 100 people and offers super fast WiFi. It is also ADA compliant, which was an important factor for us.

The DjangoCon sprints will take place on Thursday, September 10th, and Friday, September 11th, from 9am-6pm. If you haven’t signed up for the sprints yet, please do so on our registration page. The sprints are free, but having a headcount helps us plan.

Thanks to our wonderful sponsor ObjectRocket we will have breakfast and lunch for everyone and thanks to Opbeat there will be coffee.

How to get there

The Google Fiber Space is located on 201 Colorado Street in the heart of downtown Austin. It’s around 15 blocks away from the conference center, or around a 25 minute walk.


If you can’t walk or don’t feel like walking, the best option would be to either share an Uber with other sprint attendees or to take the bus. It is also possible to drive there, should you have a car available, but the Google Fiber Space team warned us that it might be problematic to find parking.

Taking an Uber from the conference hotel to the Google Fiber Space costs between $4 and $6 and should take less than 10 minutes depending on traffic. Taking the bus is as cheap as $1.25 and takes around 20 minutes. To get there by bus, take the 801 South Park bus: walk from the AT&T Conference Center to the bus stop on Guadalupe between 16th and 17th streets. Get off at the Republic Square stop at Guadalupe and 5th. Google Fiber is a couple blocks away, at Colorado Street and 2nd.

The Cap Metro Trip Planner can help you plan your trip if you’re coming from another location!

All busses in Austin are accessibility friendly, clean, and provide air conditioning. We would highly recommend taking the bus for getting around downtown Austin.

We look forward to seeing you at the sprints!
