Following Microsoft’s recent announcement as the headline sponsor of this year’s TypeCon conference, the conference organizers cordially invite TypeCon attendees, speakers, and W3C Working Group participants to the event’s official kick-off party, in recognition and celebration of WOFF, the web font format that unites the web development and font development communities.

Cheers, Si

Does anybody know - Is there a bus from the main hotel to this?

Or should I plan on getting there on my own?

Thanks!

I understand transport is being provided - hence it's important to sign up.

Cheers, si

Sorry for the delayed RSVP - I'll be there.

I might drive all the way, or get to where the
bus leaves from. Exactly where/when is that?

I can't figure out if this is going to be on the main
campus, or the Graduate Studios further south.
