Hackaday Superconference Tickets And Proposals Are Live Right Now

Stop what you’re doing and get your ticket to the Hackaday Superconference. This is the ultimate hardware conference, November 15th, 16th, and 17th in Pasadena, California. It will sell out, especially the early bird tickets which are certain to be snapped up before the end of this day. (Edit: Early Bird tickets are already sold out, but you can still get the Early Bird price by submitting a talk).

Supercon is all about hardware creation. From prototypes and manufacturable designs, to one-off hardware art and products that have sold thousands, this is where you meet the people and hear the stories behind new and interesting feats of engineering. It’s a weekend filled with fascinating talks and mind-expanding workshops, but Supercon is so much more.

This is a Hacker Village where the greenest beginner and the grayest veteran sit shoulder to shoulder to solder, to code, to dream of the future, and to share stories of the past. We want you here, and you need to make it happen. Whether it’s professional development (yes! ask your boss to make this a business outing) or your hard-earned vacation, Supercon will recharge your batteries and top off your inspiration for the year to come.

Your Talk Here

The Call for Proposals is now open. We want you to speak at Supercon!

Yes, I’m talking to you. Core to the mission of the Hackaday Superconference is to encourage more people to speak publicly about everything that goes into designing and manufacturing hardware. This means we want first time speakers just as much as we want seasoned presenters. You will be celebrated at Supercon; the ethos of this community is warm, welcoming, and thankful that you took the time to help everyone learn something interesting.

Don’t stop to ask yourself if you should… yes, we want to read your talk proposal. No topic is too big or too small for consideration. This is your chance to give back as a thank-you to so many people who have helped you gather your own skills over the years. We stand on the shoulders of giants, it’s your turn to be giant.

True Believer Tickets

We like to think of our Early Bird tickets as a nod to the true believers out there. We haven’t published the speakers, the workshops, or really anything else. That info will be public as everything comes together, but by then it may be too late to get a ticket. Right now all we can tell you for certain is that there will be a big celebration to name the grand prize winner of the 2019 Hackaday Prize, there will be a ton of badge hacking on a mind-blowing hardware badge being designed by Sprite_TM (Jeroen Domburg), you will have way too much fun and get far too little sleep, and tickets will sell out. In other words, this will be awesome.

Need more convincing? You can watch the recap video from 2018, or dive into the weekend overview, badge-hacking, and competitive soldering roundups. I’ve never met anyone from the first four years of  Supercon who regretted buying early bird tickets. I’ve met plenty of people who regretted missing out. Don’t miss out on year five of the movement. This is your community, there is truly something for everyone, and Pasadena is a beautiful place to be in the middle of November. See you at Supercon!

  1. I’ve booked a ticket. Would be glad to do a keynote if you like. I also have a talk on how to do community development without having problems with ITAR/EAR – is there enough interest that I should propose that? And I have a digital amateur radio transceiver that I’m developing that I can show.

  2. I attended my first Hackaday Superconference last year, and won’t miss another one. Hackaday is just the faint shadow of a widely-scattered community, and bringing them all together really creates something special.

  3. Submitting a legit proposal for a demo, talk, or workshop, will get you the earlybird price.

    Proposal guidelines: We like to hear proposals that are about things we haven’t heard before. For example, if you are proposing something that someone (or you) spoke about or proposed last year, we may not accept it.
    If it’s brand new and shiny, we’d love to hear about it. Best of luck!

    1. Thanks for setting this up! After submitting a proposal, is there some delay for it to be reviewed before an early bird price promotional code is awarded? I’d just prefer not to buy a full price ticket and then get an email about a promotional code the next day.

        1. If we make the cut for proposal-based early pricing, but already bought a normal-price ticket, is there an easy enough resolution for that? Or I guess, if a proposal is accepted for a talk :)
