Google has us capped at 32 attendees.

Please join the GitTogether mailing list. We promise to keep the traffic low and only about this event. Useful information for attendees will be sent to this list as we get closer to the GitTogether.


Arrive around 9:00 am each day. Googlers will be on hand to help you sign in and find the meeting room. After 9:30 sign-in will be difficult as there is no reception service in our building.

Hot breakfast will be catered in the meeting space. Lunch will be provided in a nearby Google Cafe. Coffee, beverages and small snacks will also be available throughout the day.


  • Dinner on Monday sponsored by GitHub: DishDash - 190 South Murphy St, Sunnyvale, CA 94086
  • Dinner on Tuesday sponsored by Google: Amarin Thai - 74-176 Castro Street, Mountain View, CA
  • Dinner on Wednesday is not pre-arranged.

Its up to you to get to Google each day. You may want to try and carpool with other attendees staying at nearby hotels.

When mapping driving directions you want to use 1500 Plymouth St, Mountain View, California as the building street address.

The meeting space, Palomar Tech Talk, is on the second floor of the Plymouth 1 building.

Parking: Any parking that is not otherwise reserved for the disabled, expectant mothers, etc., is fair game. Help yourself.

Sign In: You will need to sign in at reception each day. You will be asked by our system to execute an NDA, which covers anything you may learn about Google during the course of your visit, not the content of the GitTogether. If you feel strongly about not executing the NDA, you can go right ahead and decline it during sign in. You won't be that close to employee areas, so I don't care if you sign it or not.

Photos: Nope. Outside only. Be good.

Recording: Audio only, no video. Be good. Since this is a standard Google tech talk room, we may be able to take advantage of the video recording capabilities to record a specific talk or two and post them on YouTube after the event.


Plenty of table space and power outlets will be available in the meeting room. Folks outside the US may need to bring an outlet adapter/voltage converter. Please make sure to bring your laptop power supply. Unlike most Google conference rooms our meeting space does not come with built-in laptop power connectors. Even Googlers need to bring their own power supply.

Google has free wireless Internet access available everywhere on the campus ("GoogleGuest"). 802.11 wireless support is required to connect to the Internet. Hardwired LAN connections are not available in our meeting space.

Travel Details

Google provides some information about discounted lodging, visiting and parking.

Public transit is available in the area, look at Google Transit to help you plan a route.

If you would prefer to spend less than you would on taxi service but would prefer to be picked up at the airport rather than navigate public transport, try Super Shuttle. Shared rides (with a van full of other travelers) start at about 35 USD from any of the area airports.

Nearby airports are, in increasing distance from Google:

  • SJC - San Jose, CA
  • SFO - San Fransisco, CA
  • OAK - Oakland, CA

Nearby Activities

If you are traveling far and wish to stay some extra time there are many activities in the bay area.
