I'm happy to say that this year we're moving to a bigger venue. Instead of Dinkelspiel we're going to be in Memorial Auditorium, which is more than 2x bigger. Many thanks to the Stanford administration for that.

@pg: How many hackers attend each year? I forget to count ;)

Dinkelspiel holds 715 but Mem Aud holds 1715.

Cheers! Great venue and the best startup conference in town. Startup School is by far the best startup conference in the Bay Area, and I say that as a 20-something startup founder that mostly still finds increased social connection with 20-something startup founders more compared to wizened 30-something serial entrepreneurs, media people, employees, and successful failures. It's a good thing Startup School is going to get a lot bigger this year because it's unfortunate that so many people always were rejected.

It's actually very difficult to find a venue of this size in the Bay Area, though particularly in San Francisco. I say this as both an ex ticket scalper and an event promoter for a large Bay Area event that is coming up.

By the way, please come to my event (the Singularity Summit!) www.singularitysummit.com Use coupon code HACKERNEWS for a discount on tickets.

@pg will the event be recorded/archived and viewable later?

Yes. BTW, you don't need @s here.

That's good to know! I won't be making it there, but I would very much like to spend some time watching the talks.

Are the talks from previous years available? I could not find any links on the website.

We've got links to a bunch of talks from previous years archived on Lanyrd. Take a look at our series page for Startup School: http://lanyrd.com/series/startup-school/

First link after a Google search:



I was disappointed to see "past years" was just a list of speakers in no discernable order, with no idea what they talked about (or when), no recordings, no slide decks, etc.

+1, live streaming with hangouts on air would be amazing!


That would be amazing!

I got an invite for Work at a Startup at the start of the year, but couldn't go because I live in Australia. To avoid the plane ticket I looked at other ways of getting there, like via cargo plane or cargo ship. It turns out the first one is illegal an the second one is more expensive and takes longer :D
