Subject [Xerces2] Workshop Details
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2001 09:21:11 GMT
I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone this coming 
Monday at the Xerces2 Workshop. In the morning I'll present
extremely detailed information on the Xerces2 architecture 
and implementation. And then we'll spend the afternoon 
resolving open issues and discussing the future of the 
project. 

As I'm writing up the material for the morning session, I'm 
realizing that there is a *lot* of information. So I may 
need to use a little time after lunch to finish anything
that we weren't able to cover in the morning. But there's
no reason to worry because we have plenty of time. And if
you're like me, then the really nitty-gritty stuff is the
most interesting part of the presentation, anyway! :)

In preparation for next Monday, I thought that I would send
out this email with the last minute details for the event. 
For convenience, at the bottom of this email I've included 
the workshop details again as well as driving directions to 
the IBM site. If you have any additional questions regarding 
the day, don't hesitate to contact me.

Aside from the details, though, I need to know a few things
from all of the attendees. First, do you have any special
diet restrictions? Please let me know so that I can make
special arrangements for your lunch. Also, I want to know
if anyone wants to present any information at the workshop. 
If not, that's OK but at least *think* of issues and
questions to help drive the afternoon conversations.

    Take 85 to 280 south.
    Take Cupertino exit. (Sunnyvale/Saratoga Ave.)

    Turn left onto DeAnza Blvd*. (Apple will be on your left.)
    Turn right on Lazaneo Dr. (IBM is on the corner.)

  * NOTE: Sunnyvale/Saratoga Ave. *IS* DeAnza Blvd. Like
    every street in the Bay Area, it has three different
    names! ;)

In all cases: 

1) If you hit Homestead Road, then you're going the wrong way. 
   Turn around.
2) If you hit Stevens Creek Blvd., you've gone too far. Turn 
   around. And remember that now IBM will be on the left, across 
   the street (diagonally) from the Donut Wheel.
