The LDSTech Developers Conference is Quickly Approaching

Remember that the LDSTech Developers Conference begins this Thursday, April 1. Although registration is now closed, we are amazed and excited about the number of you planning to join us. If you wanted to attend but were unable to, don't worry, we plan to do this again.

If you have registered, there are a few things that you should know:

  • The venue for the first day of the conference (April 1) has been changed to a stake center in downtown Salt Lake City, located at 135 A Street. This location is within walking distance of Temple Square. Some parking is available and there is also limited free street parking. You may park downtown, but please keep in mind that underground parking at the Conference Center is $10. You may also pay to park at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. UTA TRAX lines are also available, see the Ride UTA site for route information.
  • The keynotes on Thursday (April 1) will be delivered in the building’s Chapel, plan to dress accordingly. Dress code on Friday (April 2) is business casual (collared shirts and slacks).
  • As an LDSTech community member and a registered participant of the LDSTech Developers Conference you are required to sign the Individual Contributors License before doing any work. If you have not done this, you will be asked to do so at check-in.
  • If you have a laptop, bring it on Friday, April 2. This day will be primarily spent working on projects.
  • A courtesy shuttle has been made available for transportation on Friday (April 2) only. See the table below for departure times.

LDSTech Forum Will be Converting to LDS Account for Authentication

LDS Account is a single user name and password for any person who interacts with online LDS Church resources. LDS Account will become the primary account authentication credentials for most Church sites and applications.

The LDSTech Forum has used its own sign in system since it started in January 2007. The LDSTech forums will be switching to LDS Account in the near future. To help prepare for this migration, we need you to visit the LDSTech Forum Account Migration page to move your forum account to LDS Account. You will have 4 weeks to make this migration.

Learn more about the conversion.
