Your family needs Tailscale
With the power of Tailscale and Pi-hole combined, you too can have your household internet free of pesky popups, attention grabbers and possibly misleading claims to have won an iPhone.

Build your own game streaming service
Streaming games from the cloud is great, but how can you get the same flexibility with existing hardware? Using Tailscale with Steam we can game from anywhere, anytime, on any device.

All the buttons
What kind of user experiences can you build if you use every trick in the Tailscale book - features that are old, new, and even unreleased? We built a hacking attack/defense simulation platform, and want to show you what's possible when you commit Tailscale crimes.

The managed NAT gateway time machine
Via the magic of Tailscale, the presenter will do the (financially) impossible: pass traffic through two AWS Managed NAT Gateways. This in turn creates a vortex that is so phenomenally expensive that it warps the very fabric of space and time. That vortex will then be used to take the audience on a living tour of the history of crappy VPNs, hilariously bad multicloud networking attempts, and bear living witness to the actual moment Cisco set off down its path to become a sad corporate dragon with no friends.

Food & Drinks
We are putting a lot of thought into the food and drink that will be served throughout the day. This ain’t no regular conference food. We will announce specifics in the coming weeks but there will be a clean breakfast, a variety of food trucks for lunch, and dinner with craft beer and mocktails at the after-hours social event. And an all day coffee cart, of course.
After Hours
We will stay onsite at Dogpatch to wrap up the conference with craft beer, natural wines, and immaculate vibes. There will be food, board games, graphic novels, and good company.
Getting There
Located just one mile south of the Giants’ ballpark, Dogpatch is easily accessed by bus, train, car, taxi, rideshare, MUNI (T-Line), or even by boat!
