About Study Hall
component of the Day of Foster.ly, although registration to Study Hall
was originally restricted to designers and developers, we've cut the
expo area down to make room for non-designers and developers as well.
Within a great space at Artisphere, a Study Hall (developer or designer)
attendee will also win a free Ultrabook courtesy of Microsoft BizSpark.
As a collaborative effort between Foster.ly, Bolster Labs, Intridea,
nclud, Viget & Whitmoyer, the developer and designer component of
Study Hall will have a significant amount of talent in the room.
Space is limited for the developer and designer component Study Hall, and there will be a wait list.
The Day of Foster.ly Charity Component
$1 from every registration will go in to a charity pot. Every
registrant will get a single vote toward their desired charity. The
charity with the most votes will receive 75% of the charity pot while a
