    It's at Taper Hall. See the eventbrite link and RSVP. IMPORTANT: Do not park across the street at the market. Parking is free there, but monitored with cameras and your vehicle will most likely get towed.
    Parking is reserved off W. Jefferson Blvd, through Gate 4 and Parking Structure D. The cost is $10 per
    vehicle. You can access it off of Jefferson Boulevard at Royal Street (east of Hoover Street). To view
    directions to the parking lot location, you can click on this link and plug in your address:
    Once at Gate 4, mention you are here for “Salesforce University” or “the Salesforce event”.
