Tomorrow is the start of the WhereCamp SoCal weekend event being held at SDSU in the Adams Humanities building, room 2108.
We are providing food all three meals on Saturday. We will have some munchies for breakfast on Sunday (and lots of coffee) – if you need/want a full breakfast you might want to eat before you get there. And Sunday lunch will be on your on "off camp" at one of the neighborhood eateries. Sorry folks, sponsorships couldn’t buy enough food for all meals.
Take the Green Line to SDSU if you are interested in making use of the San Diego Trolley.
Everything gets started at 8 AM – get there for breakfast, meeting lots of great folks, and planning the breakout session discussion topics! We will also have two keynote talks, then get into your choice of a breakout session, or a workshop.
After dinner we will be adding another twist with a few Ignite/Lightning Talks. We are going to follow that up with a field trip to a local bar or???
Folks are then welcome to head back to the Viz Lab if they want to continue discussions or hack on some code into the wee hours.
We will start up again Sunday morning with breakfast, networking and planning out the breakout session discussion topics for the day. Lunch break half way through the day at noon. And we will wrap up at 3 with some closing thoughts.
