We organize a Google Plex / Mountain View Tour this year as well. One difference is that we'll go on Friday, so the Google Shop will be open.
Even if you decide to drive on your own, you must show up for the debrief and headcount at The Fresno Center at 6:30 am.
This meetup event will gauge the interest for the tour and allows for extra communication. To attend you must purchase a ticket at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2019-summer-google-trip-tickets-69818327497
You don't need to have any technical proficiency for this event. All ages are welcome. We'll see all the famous buildings and features of the main campus. We'll have Google employee a tour guide, we'll visit the Google Visitor center as well.
The second half of the day we'll visit the Computer History Museum this year the discounted museum ticket price will be built into the Eventbrite ticket price to streamline museum entrance.
The Eventbrite fee contains the lunch (we are planning pizza and we'll consume it on the lawn of the park at the Google Plex), but it does not contain snacks. We'll have opportunity to get snacks at the Museum, at the rest stops at Case de Frutta. Please bring your snacks and beverages accordingly. The weather could be warm, please bring enough water though and sun protection for the outside tour part (an hour).
