    The campus center for the city's tech scene. Lots of great event here, plus dozens of companies working out of the space. Always good for a quick sit down or random chat.

    Elevators take forever, take the stairs next to the unisex bathrooms. The door seems locked but you just have to push a small button behind the left side of the handle

    Protip: have a team meeting but not a conference room? Make it a standup in the coat room.

    If you sign up for a class make sure you come early because seats fill up quickly and GA usually over sells the event.
