    Very informative links. Thanks much for the same. On a different note, is there a recommended space for parking - since the location is in downtown?

    Looking forward to it.

      You may be able to find street parking around NextSpace for no charge, but if not, most downtown garages have a $5 flat rate after 6pm. There are multiple garages near NextSpace. Here's a parking map highlighting one of the nearest ones at San Fernando & S 2nd St: http://sjdowntownpark...­

      If you dont mind a 5 minute walk, the city garage on 4th and santa clara is free after 6pm

    I just joined and am planning to attend the next Meetup. Is there anything I can do to prepare? Other than reading the FAQ, of course.

      Hi Tyler - nice to meet you! Great question - no pre-work necessary, but you can def check out some of the work other Brigades across the country have created here: http://codeforamerica...­

      Closer to our next hack night we will likely send out some more info about current projects as well :)

      Let me know if you have any questions!
