Meetup at Apple's Campus in Cupertino: The Story of a Pixel

We held our first iPhone developer meetup in April 2008 at Cupertino Community Hall, and on November 5 we'll be back in Cupertino, but this time at Apple's campus on Infinite Loop. Made possible by our friends at Apple, this meetup will provide opportunities for networking and will feature a technical talk from a member of the iOS Apps and Frameworks team titled The Story of a Pixel.

Space is limited, so we'll only be able to provide admission to people confirmed on the RSVP "YES" list, and for building security we'll need you to provide your full name and an email address with your RSVP. For fun I've also added a few survey questions about your app development experience. We'll share the results at the meetup.

DIRECTIONS

We'll be in Apple's Town Hall Auditorium at 4 Infinite Loop. If you've never been to Apple's campus, take a look at this Wikipedia page for reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Campus. There are six buildings around the Infinite Loop circle, so 4 Infinite Loop is directly opposite the main entrance. 

Please do not try to enter through the front entrance (at IL1). When driving to the meetup, instead drive all the way around to the back side of the loop and park near the IL4 entrance. That will be the only entrance available for the meetup.

To avoid parking problems, please plan to arrive at 6:30 or later. There will be a single talk tonight, so it won't start until at least 7:30, giving us plenty of time to arrive, eat pizza, and mingle.

WORD

Thanks everyone for all the patience you've shown with this process. With events as exciting as this one, it seems that organizers either use price to control demand or are overwhelmed by it. We wanted this to be free, which unfortunately means that there are many people on the waitlist that we won't be able to admit. However, let's make this a great success for Apple and see where we go next. 

In addition to Apple's technical team, a few members of Apple's recruiting staff will be available tonight. So if you're interested in working at Apple, come prepared!

And if you think this is good, there's a lot more happening at Renaissance. Early registrations are available now. Don't wait for them to sell out.

    To echo someone else's question, for the benefit of first time visitors to the Apple campus, please update the description with details in the best way to park and get to the venue once entering the Apple campus from DeAnza Blvd., or on the Infinite Loop. Thanks and looking forward to the Meetup.

      Tim, thanks for updating the event description with the requested details. Cheers!

  • Tim B.

    Hi, if you have a "YES" RSVP and won't be able to attend today, please update your reply by 9am. RSVPs will close then so that we can get a final list of names to Apple Campus Security. As noted, we'll only be able to provide admission to people on the "YES" list, but if you can't join us for this one, more great events are coming.

    • H C.

      Thank you for the clarification. I was not sure how close to the event wait listers will be notified. If I don't read from you all then best wishes and I hope you have a great event. Larer

  • H C.

    I am new to this. Although there is a wait list, should wait listed people show up, just in case a space open up? I'm asking because I'm a 100 deep down the list.

    November 5, 2013

    • Ben M.

      Tim said that only confirmed attendees will be on the white list to enter the building at Apple. So no Waiting List members will be able to get in the door. Here is the reference comment: http://www.meetup.com...­

    Perhaps more details on the event, will help people decide if they want to really attend. Could help others in the waitlist.

      Thanks for the updated details in the description!

  • Tom W.

    Hope everyone is honest with their RSVP and doesn't wait till last minute to change their answer.

    • Larry T.

      It's often the case that something comes up at the last minute and you have to cancel late.

      1 · October 28, 2013

    • Mark H.

      In my case, I was fairly sure at the time of my registration that I wouldn't be working on election day. However, I found out yesterday from the election office I'll be needed to work all day as an official on Tuesday (from 6 am to 10 pm). Since I won't be going to the meetup, if the FIFO auto-process is working properly, the lucky person on the waitlist probably going instead of myself will either be Christopher (no last name), Oscar Vera or KC Leung.

    Hi , I wonder any chance I can get into this meet up . I have been in waiting list for three weeks.

    1 · November 1, 2013

    • bdbaddog

      Based on Tim's previous comments it sounds like it's automatic via Meetup and it's FIFO..

      1 · November 1, 2013

    • Tim B.

      Hi, that's right, the waiting list is automatic, which means that people at the top of the list are automatically moved to "YES" when anyone changes their RSVP from "YES" to "NO".

      2 · November 1, 2013

  • Michael H.

    Do Apple employees need to register to attend?

    2 · October 29, 2013

    • Tim B.

      Diana, If you've been to a WWDC, you've probably seen Apple employees lined up outside sessions in a separate line. That's so they can get in after all the registered attendees have gotten in. That's likely to be the pattern at our meetup, and frankly I think that the more Apple employees who attend, the better it is for the people who get in.

      November 1, 2013

    • Tim B.

      Frank, yes, the meetup area is in an area of Apple's campus that any employee can enter, but that's restricted for those of us who aren't Apple employees.

      November 1, 2013

  • Abhi M.

    Some other thing came up, I have changed my RSVP to No. Have a great event everyone!

    2 · October 31, 2013

  • Jon S.

    Hey TIm,

    Just be careful if you start banning people. I showed up 5 minutes late to the Yahoo! meetup and they weren't checking people in. I think several of us were missed.

    Thanks for all you do!

    - Jon

    October 29, 2013

    • Tim B.

      Hi Jon, I'm way too disorganized to start doing that :)

      1 · October 31, 2013

  • Trung B.

    Do I receive anything in case status change from Waitlist to Attending list?

    1 · October 31, 2013

    • Tim B.

      You should get an email from meetup.

      1 · October 31, 2013

  • Emmanuel P.

    I'm going to do someone a favor! About to change my RSVP because I can't attend. Please send good karma my way :-)

    2 · October 31, 2013

  • Tim B.

    Hi, I just sent an initial block of names to our hosts. When I did, I noticed that a few people didn't register with full names, typically by not providing their full name with their meetup account and by not answering the additional survey question that I added with the RSVP form.

    Unfortunately, we won't have badges for people who don't register with full names. If you'd like to correct your registration, please email me your full name and meetup account, or better yet, update your meetup.com account name and this will be fixed automatically. Thanks!

  • Olie

    Is there an agenda posted? (Sorry, I'm being blind, this morning. :)

    October 27, 2013

    • Tim B.

      Hi Katy, unfortunately this is our host's policy - they don't want to have to turn anyone away and since this is an unusual event, the no-show rate is impossible to predict.

      October 28, 2013

    • Tim B.

      No, only the list of "yes" RSVPs.

  • Dirk de K.

    I'd say charge $5 or $10, spend it on (even better) food and that way make sure people will actually show up and not occupy a seat for somebody else.

  • Julian G.

    Well that's annoying. Closed for RSVP yesterday, full today. Is this WWDC or something?

    2 · October 18, 2013

    • Tim B.

      Sorry, that's not how the meetup waitlist works - the waiting list is automatic. As people cancel, spots are offered in the order people joined the waitlist. I'll try to get as much capacity as we can and to encourage people who can't make it to update their RSVPs ASAP.

      October 18, 2013

    • Tim B.

      Actually (being pedantic) I usually set RSVPs to open a month (31 days) before an event. But for this particular meetup at Apple, I didn't create the listing until today. Julian, perhaps you saw the listing for the Nov 18 meetup at Quantcast, which is still on (and registrations for that one will open tonight).
