Downtown Buffalo is full of architectural gems, and our conference is set in the middle of it: The Buffalo & Erie County Public Library's Mason O. Damon Auditorium. Right outside is Lafayette Square, which has long been a center for the city's activity.
We're really excited to welcome you to the great tech community here in Buffalo. From meetups like OpenHack, to StartupWeekend, and BarCampBuffalo, we love our programmers, designers, and technologists of all kinds.
We want you not only come to the conference, but see some of what our region has to offer. There's plenty of attractions to check out for you in the area while you're in town:
Need a hotel room? We have rooms for you 3 blocks away from the venue at the Comfort Suites. Use
Nickel City Ruby as the group code. We also suggest the Hotel Lafayette, Hyatt Regency, or the Embassy Suites. There's also some great places in local neighborhoods on AirBNB.
