April 3rd - April 5th, 2020
By the Bay
Dedicated to making the world gooder

Taking MINASWAN to heart

Don't stop at being nice - let's proactively do something good for our world, our community, ourselves.

What you need to know

Bring yourself, your laptop, and whatever you plan on wearing. Lodging consists of shared bunkrooms - please bring your own linens (towels, sheets, blankets, and pillows). We will supply the food, (non-alcoholic) drinks, and fun atmosphere. For a more in-depth run down of the weekend, check out our attendee information page and Code of Conduct. More questions? Drop us a note.

What does it cost?

$50 - $150, all-inclusive. Registration includes room, three meals a day, and snacks! The stunning views and soothing ocean sounds come free with the site. We are a break-even operation; all funds go toward paying for the event! If you'd like to chip in a little extra, that will be put to support our scholarship recipients and to make the event more fun and productive.

Anything else?

You’ll spend dinner the first day meeting with your team, chatting about your projects, and getting your environments aligned. We’ve found the event is most successful, with the most buy-in, when teams are a cohesive bunch from the beginning.
