[Campus-princeton-staff] Teaching open source in Princeton (NYC-ish) area, Sun 11/24

Shauna Gordon-McKeon hello at

Hi Alec!  That's great.  Thank you so much for helping us out.

My understanding is that the event is not super close to the Princeton
train station, but that our student organizers will be picking people up
from the train station.  Emails just went out on the list yesterday with
more information about what to expect at the event, as well as travel
suggestons.  I'm going to go and forward those to you after I send this

Of note: the email on "what to expect at the event" asks if you're
interested in leading a git-based activity, being on the career panel,
and/or being a "project lead" (that is, working with students on an open
source project that you maintain or otherwise know very well.)  You don't
have to do any of those things, but if you'd like to, let us know and we'll
go over what that involves in more detail.

I'm also cc-ing our staff list for the event.  You should be added to that
list shortly.  They'll coordinate picking you up.

- Shauna
