For a 2-day developer conference in SF, which two days of the week are best?

It depends on the topic and the audience.

If you’re expecting people from out of town, you should go with Mon-Tue or Thu-Fri to allow people the chance to tack on a weekend to enjoy the city.

If it’s a conference for VCs, remember that they traditionally have their partner meetings on Monday.

If the audience are likely to be parents, don’t schedule it over a weekend.

Look out for other conflicting events too, as that’s a bigger concern than if it should be on particular days of the week.
