An update on Tailscale Up — our conference for you!
In case you missed it, Tailscale Up is our first community conference that brings Tailscale out of the network layer and into the real world on Wednesday, May 31. Come to meet open source maintainers, hardware hackers, self-hosters, and Tailscalars (sometimes all the same person) to share stories, workflows, and favorite projects. You can find tickets, accommodation details, and more over on the developer community site.
We will host this event at Dogpatch Studios at 991 Tennessee Street in San Francisco. The conference will feature a full day of talks, great food, and an after-hours social event hosted onsite with both non-alcoholic drinks and beer from local breweries.
Early bird tickets are on sale through Friday, April 28. Let us know we can expect to see you by purchasing a ticket on our developer community website.

Tailscale @ Home: Your Family Needs Tailscale
We’re all super familiar with the fantastic ways that Tailscale can change your life, but hear her out on this one. What if you could give your parents an ad-free internet? Without having to maintain a dedicated device in their house? (The child tech support phone calls on that one…)
With the power of Tailscale and Pi-hole combined, you too can have your household internet free of pesky popups, attention grabbers, and possibly misleading claims to have won an iPhone. (Warning: Some assembly required!)
Justin Garrison, Developer Advocate, AWS
Tailscale @ Play: Build Your Own Game Streaming Service
Streaming games from the cloud is great, but how can you get the same flexibility with your own existing hardware? Using Tailscale with Steam, we can game from anywhere, anytime, on any device.

Networking Crimes: All the Buttons
What kind of user experiences can you build if you use every trick in the Tailscale book — features that are old, new, and even unreleased? We built a hacking attack/defense simulation platform, and want to show you what’s possible when you commit Tailscale crimes.
Corey Quinn, Chief Cloud Economist, The Duckbill Group
More Networking Crimes: The Managed NAT Gateway Time Machine
Via the magic of Tailscale, Corey will do the (financially) impossible: pass traffic through two AWS Managed NAT Gateways. This in turn will create a vortex that is so phenomenally expensive that it warps the very fabric of space and time. That vortex will then be used to take you on a living tour of the history of crappy VPNs, hilariously bad multicloud networking attempts, and bear living witness to the actual moment Cisco set off down its path to become a sad corporate dragon with no friends.
Building something that’s the peanut butter to Tailscale’s chocolate? If you’re interested in exploring potential partnership opportunities with us, either at the conference or beyond, we invite you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to discuss different options for collaboration and find creative ways to work together.
