Getting There

It is strongly advised to people flying it to land at San Francisco Airport rather than San Jose, which is a fairly long car ride away.

The best way to get to the city from the airport is to take the (cheap and reliable) public transport - BART or CalTrain. Travelling by car is not recommended. Parking may be a serious issue in SF.

From Chris Rogers:

« James, there is no Google parking lot or free parking, so you have to park yourself. My manager advises me that there is a very close all-day parking lot] on Spear street just past Harrison street and almost right under the Bay Bridge.»


26 and 27 March 2013

We will start the first day at 09:00AM. Please get to the venue for 9AM sharp so we can all clear registration/security together. Bring a photo ID.

We may end day 2 early if several participants need to go catch a flight. Contact the chairs if you are in that case.


Registration is closed. Please contact Olivier if you would like to add a last-minute registration.


There are a number of hotels in central SF, but the proximity of GDC at the Moscone Center means that a number of hotels will be packed. Airbnb has been recommended as a viable alternative.
