For those booking flights to Phoenix, please note our general schedule for RailsConf has us starting our days around 9:30am and ending them around 6pm. Registration on Day 1 (Tuesday, April 25) will open approximately two hours before programming begins. On Day 3 (Thursday, April 27), we will be ending programming around 5-6pm. All three days are full days of programming; we will not be having any workshop- or tutorial-only days.


All of our reserved RailsConf 2017 hotel blocks have now sold out. There are still hotel rooms available in the general Phoenix area, but we've been told the whole city is filling up fast, so if you do find some, we'd advise you to book quickly!

Getting There

Our venue and hotel are conveniently only 4 miles from Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX), which means that a cab ride is only about 10 min/$20. Alternately, you can take public transit by taking the free PHX Sky Train to the Sky Train Station, where you can then take the Light Rail to the 3rd/Washington station, then walk two blocks to the conference hotel.

Getting Around

Downtown Phoenix is quite walkable, and while the aforementioned light rail is one of the multiple public transit options, there are many restaurants, bars, and attractions within easy walking distance, including the splashy Cityscape complex and the funky Roosevelt Row arts district.
