2. Meeting logistics:

  • Note: The meeting this year is not on the main Apple campus, it is in a separate building about 3 miles north of the main campus (in the same location as the October 2014 meeting).
  • The meetings will be held in the Big Basin conference room on the ground floor of Apple’s Mathilda 1 (MT01) building at 250 S. Mathilda Ave. (east side), Sunnyvale, CA 94086, in front of the Sunnyvale Town Center shopping center.
  • If driving, use the free parking garage just east of the Apple building (no permit required). Parking is restricted to four hours on the first two floors of the parking structure. For all-day parking, please proceed up the ramp at the back of the parking structure on the right (i.e. in the southeast corner) and park on the 3rd or 4th levels (the ramp is a bit hard to find). The underground parking is for employees only.
  • For those taking public transit, the Mathilda 1 building is 3 blocks from the Sunnyvale Caltrain station, which is also a stop for several VTA bus lines: 32, 53, 54, 55, 304.
  • The building entrance is on the north side, facing another similar building (Nokia). Check in with the receptionist to get your visitor’s badge. You can then proceed straight ahead to the south end of the building; the conference room is outside the secure area and directly across the hall from the building cafeteria.
  • There will be wireless internet access, which should support VPN.
  • The building main door is open 8:00-5:00.
  •  Outside the meeting room there is an espresso bar open 8:00-4:00; across the hall is a cafeteria open 11:00-2:00. They accept credit cards, but not cash. Cafeteria lunch tickets will be provided.
