Welcome to BSidesSF 2022

The final countdown is on to BSidesSF 2022 – this Saturday, June 4th & Sunday, June 5th!

We want to ensure everybody’s participation is amazing, so please read below for important information concerning this year’s event.

Getting to the Event

We are back once again at the Metreon located at 135 4th Street in downtown San Francisco. The location of the Metreon lends itself to a few different transportation options. For those looking to take BART or Muni, the Metreon is located about a block from the Powell Street station. For those interested in taking Caltrain, the Metreon is one mile from the King Street station. For those driving, the Fifth and Mission Parking Garage is located directly across 4th Street and offers 24-hour parking.

Once at the Metreon, enter from the Yerba Buena Gardens north entrance (behind Lemonade if you’re coming from Mission Street).

After entering, take the stairs, escalators, or elevator up to the Mezzanine level for registration. The event will be distributed throughout the AMC Metreon 16 located on the third floor and the City View event space located on the fourth floor. However, you must first register on the Mezzanine to have access to these areas. To expedite registration, please have your QR code and proof of vaccination with ID ready.

If you pre-purchased a t-shirt or other merchandise, these will be available for pick up on the fourth floor (City View) at Coat Check beginning at 11am on Saturday. Please make sure you have your registration QR code ready for scanning.

Before You Attend

Before you attend the event, we ask that you review our Code of Conduct, our Photo and Video Policies, and our COVID-19 Safety Policy. We require that all guests abide by our policies and show respect and tolerance for each other’s uniqueness. We have no tolerance for physical, verbal, or sexual harassment; intimidation; or marginalization of any human! Additionally, due to venue restrictions, please note we only allow service animals at the event and will not be able to store bikes or scooters within the venue.

To summarize our COVID-19 Safety Policy (please review the entire policy):

Two Full Days of Talks, Events, and Happenings

Doors will open at 9am and talks begin at 10am. The full schedule of events can be found on Sched and HackerTracker (on Android and iOS). All talks, villages, and the CTF are open to any and all participants; if there is an open seat, it’s yours. For questions during talks, we will be using Slido with code #BSidesSF2022.

We encourage all participants to take a stroll through the Participant Hall and visit all our sponsors, without whom this event would not be possible. Many of our sponsors are actively recruiting, so we encourage you to stop by their booths to learn more if you are interested in new opportunities. We’ll be raffling off some really awesome items, so make sure to get your Sponsor Passport stamped and turned in prior to the daily raffle (12:30-1pm each day).
