Google has us capped at 28 attendees, due to limited space in the meeting room.

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.

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 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA as the building street address.
The meeting space, Seaside Training Room, is on the 2nd floor of building 41. The nearest staffed lobby is building 42, behind you across the courtyard. If you arrive late please check-in at the building 42 lobby.
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.
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.
Google provides some information about discounted lodging, visiting and parking.
Limited 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.
