Sunday Update

Perhaps unsurprisingly, my good intentions to have the welcome packets/envelopes ready for early birds by 8am today were derailed. For the sake of my simplicity, let’s say I’ll have them ready by this afternoon, and they can be picked up  tonight after 7pm at Huc-a-Poo’s, or tomorrow morning at the event itself. When they’re ready I’ll post to twitter and comment on this post letting you know if they can be grabbed any earlier at the Jitterbug.

A lot of people are in town now after all the successful flights that made it last night, so a few notes on entertaining yourself around town today:

  • Georgia doesn’t like booze on Sunday, and no one will be allowed to sell you any before 12:30pm today. This includes mimosas and bloody marys for brunch, so go ahead and sleep in/go later.
  • The Jitterbug inside seating area will be occupied by the team repTeam Rep A Team Rep is a person who represents the Make WordPress team to the rest of the project, make sure issues are raised and addressed as needed, and coordinates cross-team efforts. meeting from 9am-12pm. The deck is yours to claim. Wifi password is “superdecent” on “Sparkle Motion” network.
  • It’s supposed to be sunny and in the 70s today. The weather can change quickly, though, so bring a hoodie or jacket just in case. If you make any plans that involve being out on the water, it will be windy and a little chilly.
  • Restaurants that I personally tend to frequent the most on the island include Tybee Island Social Club (flatbread tacos), Sundae Cafe (the nice restaurant in town, but closed Sundays, believe it or not), AJ’s Dockside (sandwiches, fried seafood, deck seating that is awesome), and North Beach Grill (more sandwiches and seafood but with Caribbean leanings, usually has reggae playing). There’s also Lisa Sabin-Wilson and Michael Torbert’s favorite, the crab shack, but I’m still thinking we’ll try to get the group there Monday for dinner.
  • If you wind up stranded somewhere and need a ride, you can call the Island Hopper shuttle and they’ll zip you over to wherever for $3 a person: 912-656-0805.
  • Today will be fairly hectic, so I may not be monitoring my email as closely as I did yesterday, so if you need my attention, an email is good but also pingPing The act of sending a very small amount of data to an end point. Ping is used in computer science to illicit a response from a target server to test it’s connection. Ping is also a term used by Slack users to @ someone or send them a direct message (DM). Users might say something along the lines of “Ping me when the meeting starts.” me on Twitter @janeforshort to make sure I get to it promptly.

See you all soon!
