Our biweekly venue is The Change Initiative building in Al Barsha. Coming by metro? This video will show you how to head over to the venue from the Sharaf DG station. Traveling from the direction of Internet City? Watch this video. (You can skip ahead 1:20 if you are coming down Sheikh Zayed Road from the direction of Jebel Ali/Abu Dhabi.) Heading down SZR from Dubai? Watch this video if you don't mind paying for Salik, and this one if you want to avoid the toll.
We strongly suggest you scout out the location beforehand if you are unsure about finding it. If you need help, call the EPyC hotline ([masked]), but please note that the event starts at 7 PM sharp, and we may not be able to answer calls after that time.

You can get the files in JPG and RAW from this link. (Please note that the photo has been posted on May 30. If any of you started working on the image posted earlier, please use this one instead.)
You can do anything you'd like to modify the image. Please send us your image by email ([masked]) by 7 PM on the night before the event. To make our lives easier, please rename the files so that they have your name in them, e.g. Ahmed.JPG. We all vote on who has done the best job, and the best photo taken by an attendee gets a prize.
