CodeMash is once again sponsoring KidzMash, a free family track for the spouses and families of attendees. Many attendees bring their families to the waterpark, and as there is only so much water you can absorb before you need to dry out a bit, KidzMash is a way to connect and hangout together. Over the years KidzMash has evolved into an official part of CodeMash, with its own sessions, activities, and full-time staff. More than 700 kids registered for KidzMash 2015, which was several times bigger than the first CodeMash all those years ago.
KidzMash will once again be running all 4 days of CodeMash!
Please ask the designated chaperone to fill out the order form corresponding with this ticket purchase. This is in bold print and we're really hoping you read it.
*Per the insurance provider for CodeMash, we are required to tell you that unattended minors are not allowed at the conference. Unattended children will be given the Brian Prince hairstyle, an espresso, a drumset, and an OpenSource project.
CodeMash Family Dinner - Thursday Evening
Last year we rolled out a family dinner on Thursday night. During the KidzMash registration process you can buy family dinner tickets and join us for dinner and entertainment.
Cost is $15 per person for folks between the ages of 3 and 115.
Children two and under eat free. Folks over 115 eat free.
CodeMash attendees do not need to buy a ticket.
There will be an adult buffet featuring what is also being served to CodeMash attendees.
There will be a kid height buffet, with buckets of ketchup.
You can pick up your pre-purchased dinner tickets when you pick up your badges.
If you have a food allergy, please tell the folks when you arrive at the door for dinner and you will be directed to the CodeMash special request food window.
Attendees will eat in the family dining room. No need to run to the attendee dining room to get your food and run back. That’s just too much work.
Just a reminder that normally families cannot attend meals or regular sessions with CodeMash attendees. The fact is that food is the largest cost for the conference and the price to offer a family meal ticket is over $200 / per person. We don’t know many who would even consider doing that.
At CodeMash we want everyone to have a great time and we want to expose children early on to careers in the technology industry. As CodeMash is a family friendly conference, the families are invited to any after hour activity, including the water park party and reception on Thursday evening.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
There is plenty of free parking at the Kalahari. If you are staying at an offsite hotel, you can also use our CodeMash shuttle for free. It runs all day long. We even have a web app you can use to track the shuttle.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
We need the barcode to check you in. That can be the paper ticket, or the electronic version.
Can I update my registration information?
Yes, just make any changes in EventBrite.
Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
Tickets to attend KidzMash are free at any time. You don't even have to register. The family dinner tickets are $15, and can be transferred if you want. Just use EventBrite to do that.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
For KidzMash, the name on the ticket does not matter.
