Need to setup carpooling or have other issues? List them here.


  • Is anyone driving from San Jose / Sunnyvale up to SF? Carpooling?
  • My Laptop has no WiFi, but since I'd like people to test our HTTP server running on my laptop, some kind of managed ethernet switch (for hasslefree DHCP) with some patch cables would be greatly appreciated. It does not need to have internet access, though! If this costs you more than 5 minutes of time, don't bother - I'll bring a crosslink cable no matter what.
  • "Will bring an ethernet hub and cords. Does this help?" - "Yes, thank you very much !" (Konstantin)
  • VGA cable for lightning talks
