A quick update on the location for our next meeting on Thursday July
We heard back from the nice folks at DIT where we held our last meeting
- the buildings there shut at early during the summer, but Aungier St.
is open till 20:00 on Mon/Tue - our speaker only gets in on Wednesday
though, so we can't really use that venue this time around.
TCD charge for rooms during the summer, so that's out too.
So looks like we're back to using the Sun offices at East Point - only a
10 minute trip on the Dart from town, so it's perhaps it's not too
It would be convinent to remind people how to get to East Point (maybe
there are people on the list that don't know how to get there).
There is a courtesy bus from the exit of the Clontarf DART station (they
are white and small, and all the drivers have white hair ;-), once you get
into the Business Park, the first stop of the Bus is a Centra shop:
This is a map of the bus route till the centra shop:
You should then start walking to the right (looking to Centra), and keep
walking, you would see a car park at your left hand while you walk on this
direction, at the end of this car park, you will find a crossroads, if you
look at the left, in front of the crossroads, you will find the Sun
Microsystems building (there is another Sun building, ignore it, and
follow this instructions, that's the wrong one):
The map on how to get to the building from centra:
Help this is useful (I got lost the first time I went to east point).
Our contacts at DCU did offer to book a room for us (thanks Mike!) but
we figured that DCU or UCD are probably harder to get to than East Point
(although if there's interest, we could look into holding a meeting
there when the universities are back in session ?)
So - East Point, Clontarf it is then!
[ would me trying to scare up some funding for beer encourage folks to
come along on Thursday ? ]
- See you on Thursday!
