You’ve made the trek to Kalahari! Next up: check-in for CodeMash. The process is really simple, but we wanted to give you a heads up to help make things go as smoothly as possible.

TLDR: Please bring your EventBrite ticket, or have it available on your mobile app. We simply need the barcode on your ticket (either paper or on your mobile device).

Registration is located in the Orange Registration booth. It’s in the center area of the conference center, near a large bronze lion and the Orange conference room. (Ignore the other lion, near Aloeswood. Don’t let him distract you). View the map in the Official CodeMash App: Kalahari Conference Center Layout if you’ve never been to Kalahari before. On the map, the Orange registration booth is located to the left of the center, across from Suite 1.

Staying offsite? If you or your family would like to use the Kalahari waterpark, let us know when you are checking into CodeMash, and we will provide you with waterpark wristbands (good for the week). Don’t forget to request them during the check-in process. If you forget, or we don’t have any, check back later. If you are staying at Kalahari, your room “key” (wristband) doubles as a waterpark wristband, and you should request wristbands for your family during hotel check-in.
