FAQ

General

When is SpringOne?

September 1–2, 2021, from 9 AM–6 PM ET both days.

How much does SpringOne cost?

Great news: Registration is entirely free.

When can I register?

Today! Now! Literally any time. (We’ll wait here.) Register.

What’s the format of virtual SpringOne?

SpringOne will take place over two jam-packed days, with five live tracks of Breakout sessions, Main Stage presentations across both days, interactive workshops, and much more. Once you register, you can log in to springone.io on the days of the conference to catch the action.

Do I need to register in advance?

Yes, you must register to view the Main Stage and Breakout sessions, to engage with speakers, fellow attendees, and sponsors, or attend workshops (i.e., get the full SpringOne experience!).

Can I watch sessions after the event?

You sure can! Every session will be recorded and posted online shortly after SpringOne concludes.

Speakers/Call for Papers

I’ve submitted a proposal. When will I know if my talk has been accepted or denied?

Thank you for your submission! We’ll begin informing all presenters of the status of their talk in early June.

What if I have additional questions regarding my submission?

We’re happy to answer any questions you have at s1cfp@vmware.com.

Workshops

What’s the difference between instructor-led and self-paced workshops?

In the instructor-led workshops, you can get hands-on and live 1:1 interaction with instructors. Or, go at your own speed in a self-paced workshop and learn new tech in a real environment—no matter your skill level.

When will instructor-led workshop registration open?

Registration opens on July 8, 2021.

Once I register, when and where will I find the link to access the instructor-led workshop?

Sign in to your SpringOne account. We’ll also email the link to all registrants.

How much do the workshops cost?

All the self-paced workshops are free. There’s a $25 fee for instructor-led workshops, which will be returned to attendees after the conference. (See below.)

Why is there an instructor-led workshop fee this year?

We like it when SpringOne attendees can give back to the community. This year, the fee for instructor-led workshops will be returned to you after the conference in the form of a $25 coupon code you can use to make a donation on Global Giving. Simply visit the site and choose which organization or project to give your donation! Unsure which organization to support? Check out our featured partners: Black Girls CODE, Custom Collaborative, and The Last Mile.

Can I get a refund if I decide not to attend the workshop?

Yes, attendees are able to cancel and receive a refund until August 31, 2021.

Social Track

Will there be a Social Track again at SpringOne?

Yes! It’s still taking shape, but we’ll post more details in the coming weeks. 💃🏽 🧘🏽‍♀️

Sponsorships

Are there sponsorship opportunities available in this new online format?
