"Seriously awesome conference." Pradeep Elankumaran, Kicksend

A Melting Pot Conference For Realtime Technologies

We're developers first.

We asked ourselves, "What would an ideal realtime conference look like? Let's do that." 2011 was a blast and we can't wait to do it again.

A smaller gathering means bigger value.

Everyone gets more out of conferences that are centered on making connections. No elitists here—you'll talk to everyone.

"Impressively polished."Nate Smith, Derby.js

See For Yourself

To kick off one full week of realtime, we're also hosting RedisConf on October 22nd. You can stay up to date on conference news at

At &yet's 2011 Keeping it Realtime conference, Redis was the most widely used tool for realtime architecture, regardless of platform—and many people were using it quite differently.

Venue & Accommodations


Located in the heart of Portland’s Pearl District, the home of RealtimeConf 2012 is a distinctly modern two-story building with expansive glass walls, exposed concrete floors, and a 40-foot hangar style ceiling. The venue is also surrounded by award-winning restaurants, world-class shopping—and did we mention coffee?

Courtyard by Marriott- Portland City Center

Cosmopolitan, modern, sophisticated and in a class all its own. A classic, Portland boutique hotel, with each room individually decorated with local artists’ work. The Courtyard was also designed in a highly conscientious way, utilizing renewable materials down to the details of the guest rooms. It prides itself on being Portland’s greenest hotel.

Significant others track

Our resident Portland aficionados (independent filmmaker and world traveler, Melanie Brown and &yet Art Director, Amy Lynn Taylor) will lead a delicious two-day tour of Portland’s best coffee, culinary arts, and culture.

Highlights include the stunning Chinese Gardens, the Portland Art Museum, and boutique shopping in the Mississippi Avenue Arts District. Not to mention more Portlandia trivia than you can shake a cruelty-free stick at.

"This has been amazing. It's a melding of the minds."Kyle Drake, Geoloqi
