RealtimeConf returns

It gives us really deep joy to be able to officially announce that RealtimeConf will return in full force for 2015.

No, we aren’t telling you anything about it.


Okay, we’ll tell you some stuff.

The people

Most importantly, we’re thrilled to be back. RealtimeConf has always attracted an amazing lineup—of attendees. We love the community we’ve built with this event and we miss you all tremendously!

The vision

We’ll of course be true to the original vision of RealtimeConf—bringing a diverse set of technologists together to focus on the problems of realtime and what these emerging technologies mean for the future of the web. Expect great people, discussions, and talks around peer-to-peer, WebRTC, messaging, protocols, distributed systems, architecture, security, as well as the human side of all of the above.

The experience

You can expect it to be special. (If you’re unfamiliar, see a recap of 2013’s event at We’ll feature materials designed by Amy Lynn Taylor, original music by Ben Michel, and we’ll be returning to the world of [Something Greater than Artifice] by Mike Speegle. Of course you can expect a lot of effort by the &yet team, this year led by Jenna Tormanen.

The dates

The event will be three days—October 6, 7, and 8.

The location

RealtimeConf will be in &yet’s hometown of Richland, Washington. We’re a beautiful 3 hour drive from Portland or Seattle, with direct flights daily to our airport (PSC) from SFO, PDX, SEA, DEN, MSP, and SLC. Also—&yet owns a sweet school bus (of course), so we might be able to come pick you up. :) Stay tuned on that!

Only 150 tickets!

We will have fewer spots available than 2013’s event. Early bird tickets will go on sale at $1299, which will include three nights of accommodations, six meals, and a wall-to-wall experience starting when you arrive into town. Register your interest at to be the first receiving a notification.

Call for speakers

Coming soon. But this is key: imagination and ambition in talk proposals will be expected. (If you’re from an underrepresented group, we’d love to help you put together a highly creative and engaging presentation.)
