Friday & Saturday, August 14 & 15, 2020 in Pittsburgh

Visiting Pittsburgh

Heartifacts draws a national and international crowd of software professionals. Pittsburgh is a city full of activity and events for a diverse set of interests.

Getting here


You’ll want to fly into PIT and ensure that your Pittsburgh destination has an ‘h’ and is in Pennsylvania and not California.

The two common ways to get into the city approximately 20 miles from the airport are the 28X Airport Flyer bus (schedule) or ridesharing with Lyft, Uber, or zTrip.


The Capitol Express is a common route between Chicago and Washington, D.C. on which Pittsburgh is a stop.


Megabus and Greyhound are popular ways to get to Pittsburgh. Both have stations in the Cultural District area of downtown.

Things to do before and after the conference

We encourage Heartifacts attendees to arrive in Pittsburgh ahead of the event and stick around for a few days after. We’ve put together a list of things to do before and after the conference to give you some ideas:
