    I am coming from San Francisco and going to the latter afternoon session of the BBQ. If anybody in SF still needs a ride, let me know. I'll check here tomorrow morning and if a few need a lift we can try to arrange a central pick up point. I'm thinking of leaving around 12:45 is.

      Hi Spike, something came up that I had to take care of and wasn't able to check back on this in time. I imagine by now you either found a ride or are on your way there already. Unfortunately, it looks like I won't be able to make it to the BBQ this time. All the best laid plans gone to dust over random matters. Sorry!

    Just FYI for folks in Sunnyvale / Santa Clara attending the early slot:
    Caltrain runs once an hour on weekends, http://www.caltrain.com/sch...
    there's a 9:14 train (9:10 at Lawrence Station) that arrives at Menlo Park at 9:34, from whence it is a leisurely 2-mile (3 km) walk to Flood Park. Trains at 1:14 and 2:14 returning.

      Why not volunteer to act as a teaching assistant for subsequent classes? Or ask him if there is a service or a gift that he would appreciate. I sometimes offer to nitpick a manuscript or a lecture since that's a talent I can share. Teachers who take on such courses don't seem to be in it for the money.

    Hey Coursera,

    When we have problems or issues with the Coursera software, where shall we report them? Could we request a link to a wiki page with information about that kind of page so we can find out how it is intended to work and we can ask our new questions? Maybe we could even have a Forum about Fora. In general a bit more feedback about what we have just accomplished when posting, for example, would be very welcome.

    The location, unless they change it again is Flood Park, 215 Bay Road, Menlo Park, CA. $6 charge for parking. Three miles from the train station. Don't plan to come if you didn't get signed up for either 11 or 1:30 since that seems likely to cause a big mess and much turmoil. This non-guaranteed information is brought to you by a mere student.

    CARPOOL-offer I'm driving to the 11 am session from Santa Rosa and would be happy to pick up East or West Bay riders or ride with someone else. I have room for three riders. Chrome lets me search for "carpool" on this page. Contact me at [masked] to request or offer a ride.

    I have organized a coursera meetup in Chapel Hill, NC, and taking a coursera class this fall with my meetup group. By chance, I will be in Stanford the day after the BBQ, but will miss the BBQ. Best wishes for a successful party. hate to miss it.

    I accidentally reserved for the 11am spot but meant the 1:30pm spot. If someone can remove my reservation for an 11am spot ([masked]) I'd appreciate it. :) I'm also disabled and will be there using my wheelchair or (hopefully) my walker. Just want to give a heads up. :)

      Hi,
      I'm from Argentina and happily I'm doing a postdoctoral internship in Menlo Park until November, so obviously I will be in the BBQ.

      BTW I'm a Biomedical Engineer working in Machine Learning (we are 4?)
      Thanks,

      hi, I am a student and not able to attend the meeting, as till now totally dependent on father for decision making and finance. So it wiil be beneficial for other courserians like me if the meetup's important excerpts can be posted online after the meetup.

    Hey guys, my name is Robin, I'm a PhD student from Japan.
    Just wanted to say, I just read about this BBQ from the Coursera mailing list, and I just wish I could go there join you all and finally shake the hands of my idol Pr. Ng, the man who gave me a passion for AI and ML for life. I enjoyed and loved the SCPD and Coursera ML courses so much.
    So to all you guys who can go there, I hope you enjoy the chance of meeting such great people.
    Cheers!

    *Disabling Comment Notification Emails*
    As pointed out here (http://www.meetup.com/help/...­), there's a link in each email footer to unsubscribe to notifications. In my case, it was compounded by the fact that Gmail would usually hide that part and I had to expand the mail to see it.

    Does anyone know how to disable notification of individual comments? The preferences for this meetup do not seem to be accessible in the same way as for my other meetups. It seems like I can either be in the meetup or not. Thanks & sorry if this is a FAQ, I've been looking.
