It's a couple blocks away from the MIT/Kendall T stop. There are three nearby garages, but unfortunately Akamai does not provide validation.
We will provide dinner (pizza) on Friday, and breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options will be available, but please tell us if you'd like that so we can make sure to get the correct amount. All food, water, juice, etc is part of the free workshop!
If you cannot find a babysitter for that weekend, we can provide free onsite childcare. A huge thanks to thoughtbot for this opportunity!
After we're all done, we'll head over to the Cambridge Brewing Company for a celebration!
