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 on the process 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 conference center area, near a large bronze lion and the Orange conference room. (Ignore the other lion, near Aloeswood. Don’t let him distract you). Here is a handy map: Kalahari Conference Center Layout if you’ve never been to Kalahari before. On the map, the Orange registration booth is located near “Entrance A”, across from Suite 1.

Staying offsite? If you or your family would like to use the waterpark, let us know when you are checking in and we will provide you with wristbands (good for the week).

If you forget, or we don’t have any, check back later.
