We're very excited to to be getting the community back together for this informal event, and to have daqri hosting ARLA tonight. When you're 100% sure you're attending, please send an email to [masked] with your first and last name, and the names of your +1s, so that I can have you added to the security list for Los Angeles Center Studios. They take security seriously here and you won't be able to get on the lot if I don't have your full name beforehand, so please don't forget to do this!
If you're using GPS to navigate here, key in 450 S Bixel St, Los Angeles, CA instead of the 5th Street address. This will get you to the right spot. We ask that you find street parking on Bixel St or the surrounding neighborhood (in the evening there should be plenty), and then walk onto the Studio lot from the Bixel entrance. Please note!! You WILL need to stop at the security booth and give your name to the folks at the entrance. Then just follow the posted ARLA signs to Suite F-260.
The Format for Tonight
We have some cool demos lined up for this meetup, and to spice it up, we're also experimenting with a bit of an unconference style. Since our theme this month is AR Gaming, we'll have a sign-up sheet at the front where you can pick up a 5 minute slot to talk about -- and demonstrate! -- YOUR favorite AR game. Should be fun!
Pizza, Of Course
To make the evening more enjoyable, we'll be providing pizza and snacks. Also, if you're really good at baking cookies, we would NOT say no to you bringing some. ;)
Cheers and looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow at 7pm SHARP!
