Codefest 2019 Updates & Logistics

We here at Codefest would like to thank you again for your support of this year’s event. As of this afternoon, we have over 750, well on our way to a record participation. 

On Saturday morning, doors will open for registration beginning at 8am.  In order to make the registration process go smoothly, please have your Eventbrite ticket available to scan. 

If you have not already done so, please be sure to register for our Devpost site, all important Codefest information, including rules, agenda, workshops, challenges and judges will be posted there.

Teams will be required to use Devpost to notify judges of their project statement, team name, team members and more.  The registration deadline is 6pm Saturday evening, and we will not be able to accommodate teams who register after that time. 

We have an exciting list of workshops that will be offered during the day including a resume review with Comcast, Personal Branding with Vanguard, Google Cloud Platform, A.I. Workshop with American Water and more.

We will be using the DAC ticket office entrance this weekend, located off of Lancaster Walk.  Full parking details are below. 

If you have any additional questions prior to Saturday, please let us know.

We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday.  

The Drexel Garage is located on the corner of 34th and Market Streets, directly across from the DAC and Landmark Americana. The entrance is located on Ludlow, one street past Market on 34th. Parking is $10 (weekends and after 4pm on weeknights).


Here are the directions for parking in the garage:

  1. When you park remember to take note of your space number.
  2. Take the elevator down to the main lobby level.
  3. Enter your space number at the kiosk as you exit the elevator, and follow the steps to submit payment.
  4. You will then get a receipt which you can keep on you. You do not have to return to your car.
