Field Trip Alert: California Academy of Sciences for Tech Exch Developer Day


Thought it would be fun to get together to see some of the sites in SF during VMware Technology Exchange – Developer Day Event. You dont have to buy a pass in order to attend but be warned we will be talking about SDKs and APIs.



Proposing the following:

When: Sunday August 30th, 2009

Where: California Academy of Sciences Morning

Time: 10:30 – 12:00 AM PST

(why so early? – the place gets packed,come early, pre purchase tickets) The VMware folks have to also head back to Moscone to make sure demos are up and running.

Address: 55 Music Concourse Dr.,

Golden Gate Park
San Francisco, CA 94118

(415) 379-8000 http://www.calacademy.org/

Tickets can be purchased online and are $24.95 for Adults

Plan your visit details: http://www.calacademy.org/visit/plan_a_visit/

Meet: Main entrance, I will be wearing a black t-shirt and funny looking glasses.

Things to do: Attend Morrison Planetarium, and the 4 story rain forest

Lunch in the Cafeteria – they have a pretty good menu, with dishes from Slanted Door and we can end morning with an organic Cocktail @ Moss Room located downstairs of the California Academy of Sciences. This is the only museum I know that has a pretty good bar.

Note: This is kind of a self funded event, so we have to pay our own way but if anyone has any ideas for sponsorships please let us know.


Hit us back if you are interested, would be fun to meet and hang out with the community members, and check out this really cool science hall.





PS. Some random misc. info about our fine city for folks from out of town.

  o San Franciscan’s do not like it when people refer to our City as “Frisco”


o There are actually two crooked streets in SF. The first one is Lombard St. can you name the second one ?

o A dog walker can make up to $90K a year. (Im starting to like dogs even more every day)


o In the Mission District there is one excellent burrito shop every 50 meters, if you have not tried

   a burrito you are long over due.


o San Franciscans recycle, and compost more 70% of thier household garbage


o Take the Muni Transportation if you are not in a hurry


o Ocean Beach is a great beach to visit, bring your warm clothes
