**Please note, a new guest badging system was put in place last Nov, if you are not aware of that, please be sure to read below for how this may affect you**
As a follow up to our effort to improve the efficiency of contributions to the Angular code base, we will be hosting a small group workshop for advanced participants wanting to contribute to the Angular code base.
The goal of this workshop is to discuss some of the essentials that any code changes need to take into consideration, as well as work on existing pending PRs, improve them and get them merged or discuss why they are not suitable for angular core.
Please indicate interest by signing up for the waiting list by 12p Thurs 2/13, and please be sure to tell us a bit more about yourself by answering the sign up questions. If there is a spot available for you, you will receive notification on Friday, 2/14. Please note that priority will be given to those that have already contributed to Angular before or have significant outstanding PRs.
This workshop will run in parallel with a workshop for beginners that are eager to get started with AngularJS, but will take place in nearby room so the two groups will be separated. Apologies, but we have limited space for this workshop, so we will unfortunately not be able to accommodate everyone interested.
6pm - Door opens, Food, Drinks and Socializing
6:30 - Workshop begins
8:15pm - The End & Bus to Mountain View Caltrain leaves
***New Guest Badging System***
The Google Guest badging system has changed. We will be using pre-printed badges for this session, so please be sure to include your first and last name in the sign up questions. Badges will then be created for all those who are notified on Fri 2/14 that a spot is available.
Getting to the meetup by public transit (from Caltrain)
FROM THE MOUNTAIN VIEW CALTRAIN STATION
Look for the Shoreline Shuttle stop (2nd bus shelter in outer circle, near entrance <--use "Satellite" view to see best). You'll be riding in the reverse direction from most commuters, but the shuttle itself goes in a loop. Take the shuttle to stop #7 (Google) and get off at the corner of Charleston and Huff. You'll be a 2 minute walk from the meetup.
Please note, the Caltrain area can be confusing due to all the different shuttles doing dropoff/pickups. Couple tips:
• Please look for a white shuttle van that looks similar to the one pictured here.
• Shuttle will have a small sign that reads, "Shoreline Caltrain" or "MTV Caltrain"
The relevant stop times are below. Note that due to traffic, the buses do not always run according to this schedule. If a bus arrives early, it will wait until the shuttle time to depart, but if it is running late, it will only make a quick stop, so please keep an eye out.
Leaving MTV Caltrain (note, pickup times are approximate)
6:07pm <--note, this arrives to Bldg 46 at approx 6:37p (after the workshop starts - please only take this if you have completed the steps above to get a pre-printed badge, otherwise the on-demand badge service may no longer be available)
GETTING BACK TO THE MOUNTAIN VIEW CALTRAIN STATION
We'll have a shiny Google bus do a single run (about 8:15pm) to get everyone back to Caltrain in time to catch the 8:49pm Northbound train. The bus will leave from B46, right outside where the meetup is held.
