Hotel Galaxy
Gęsia 22a Street

Upon arrival at the site of the conference, please head to the registration stand where you can receive your identifier and conference materials.

The registration process begins at 8:00 AM. The lectures at 9:30 AM. We recommend you arrive early as around 8AM the registration stands may get quite crowded.

Those who arrive later can receive their identifiers without any complications, also at the registration table.

All you need to get entered for the JDD after the regitration is your ID card, that you should show in the registration desk.


The current conference agenda is already available on the website. All points are divided into 4 tracks. On the 4th track after lunch there will be tutorials - lectures with live coding examples prepared by our speakers. 

Conference organizer - PROIDEA

As many as 40 employees of the PROIDEA Foundation will be present at the conference location. Please turn to them when you need help.

You can also ask for any necessary information at the registration stand.

It is possible to print your conference materials – ask for this at the Info Desk.

All contact information of the organizers can be found in the conference planner to be included with the identifier.

Parking lot

Galaxy Hotel provides its guests with free parking, but number of spaces is limited.

Alternatively, you can leave your car safely in the nearby Galeria Kazimierz, as well as on the surrounding streets.

However, you should take into account the parking fee - Hotel Galaxy is located in a paid parking zone. 

Lunch break

This year a hot lunch will be served on the first and second floor parallelly.

Smoking Area

As always, our traditional After Party is held at the end of the first conference day, on October 13th. More about after party you can find here

Extra Activities

Let’s network and have some fun!

This year we have prepared some unusual attractions that will motivate you to meet each other, network and get the prizes. Once you are at JDD14, make sure not to miss:

Coders Meal

Rules of the game are easy: you take breakfest, go to the table signed with the same color you've got randomly at the registration and speak to the people there. We will equip tables with a cheat sheet, but you are more than welcome to ask your own questions. Coders Meal is going to take place on the first day after first lecture of JDD in the terrasse. You better do not miss it!

SpeakUp Zone

SpeakUp Zone is a place for you to become a speaker and meet your own audience. We are giving you a separate space in a hall and a blackboard. All you need to do is to write a subject that you want to speak about and wait for the JDD participants to join the discussion.

Space Race

Space Race will rock you! Divided into groups of max. 4 people you have one mission to accomplish as many game tasks as they can, as soon as they can! 

WiFi Connection

We have ensured the availability of a broadband connection for the entire premises of the event especially for the conference.
Settings of the widely available WIFI:
