Saïd Business School, Oxford
Saïd Business School
Park End Street
Saïd Business School is a high tech venue located in central Oxford right next to the railway station.
It hosts international conferences such as TED and Silicon Valley Comes to Oxford and each of its 300 seats boasts a desk, network and power point.
As well as being one of the UK's notable web technology hubs, Oxford is a historic and enchanting city to explore.
Its city centre, with its restaurants, colleges, famous museums
and gargoyles is just a five minute walk away from the venue.
The conference is on a Friday so why not make a weekend of it?
A free buffet lunch is provided in the main hall. It's a great opportunity to network and catchup with your fellow jQuery developers.
Oxford train station is right next door to the venue.
Direct trains from London leave London Paddington every 30 minutes and take approximately one hour.
Oxford is also well served from main travel hubs around the country.
- Birmingham New Street (1h 10m)
- Manchester Piccadilly (2h 50m)
- Bristol (1h)
- Southampton (1h)
Oxford's Park & Ride is the easiest way to get into Oxford City Centre by car.
With five car parks located around Oxford’s ring road and fast and frequent bus services until late evening, it is the only sensible way to travel into Oxford City Centre.
Please note there is no parking space available at the venue. While there is parking in the city centre, it is very expensive and Oxford's one way system makes it a challenge for newcomers.
Regular coach services connect Oxford with Heathrow (1 hour), Gatwick (2 hours) and Luton (2 Hours) airports.
The famous Oxford Tube coach service runs to and from London every 15 minutes during the day (2 hours), complete with free wifi and power points.
All the major bus companies, including National Express, Megabus and Stagecoach, operate from Oxford Bus Station which is a 5 minute walk from the venue.
Two all day workshops the day before the main event, produced by appendTo.
Get trained by experts in jQuery, Doug Neiner and Ralph Whitbeck current jQuery board members as well as appendTo CEO Mike Hostetler a former jQuery board member.
Thur 9th February, 9am - 5pm
Lady Margaret Hall
Note: Workshops are not being held at the Saïd, see map for LMH location.
