I am looking into providing coffee and tidbits in the mornings. I may wait until the day of the event to see how many people actually show up, so don't plan on a caffeine injection before 10am each day.
Lunches will be catered, restaurant TBD and I'm open to suggestions. Food trucks did not work out. The current plan is for catering by Old Ironsides Cafe on Friday, and possibly pizza on Saturday.
A fully hosted dinner party will be held at the Tied House Brewing Company in Mountain View, Friday May 2, 6pm-8pm. This venue is accessible by light rail or by car with free parking. If you can not make it to this event, please let Jefro know.
All meals provided by the Yocto Project Community Office
Carpools for the Tied House:
- Jefro (room for 3 more)
- JaMa (room for 3 more)
- Have fun.
- Get useful work done that benefits from high bandwidth interactions.
- Get more people involved with the project at a higher level.
This agenda is flexible, and meant to reflect the important issues in the OE community. Please feel free to contribute agenda items. We will finalize the agenda after introduction to maximize use of people's time.
