For any sessions, projects or activities that you definitely plan to do and that require a gathering space see the listbelow for the potentially available spaces. Please fill out this form if you need to reserve a space for your project or session. Amy Muller will be in touch.
Hillary HThe Commune (pictured above) - large, light-filled, indoor, air conditioned space near the quiet pool.
Talks, workouts, yoga, and many all-community indoor events can take place here. The rest of the time, that space will have tables & chairs available for smaller sessions and gatherings. Very likely, multiple smaller sessions will be going on here at once as it's one of the few large, air conditioned spaces.
Amy MThe Co-op (pictured above) -- smaller, light-filled indoor, air conditioned space right off the Moroccan patio.This will be set up as the Maker Lounge all weekend. Chock full of fun toys like a MakerBot, Arduinos, RasPi's, and more....
Part of our culture at YxYY is that, aside from a few anchor activities (see schedule & map) [change to 2017 version when available]there are no pre-published schedules. The goal is to be present & discover the fun as it happens around you, rather than showing up with your whole weekend already planned.
YxYYers are encouraged to invite people to their fun however you wish! If you have a discussion you’d like to start, a talk you’d like to give, or a karaoke competition you’d like to instigate, feel free to announce it on the app or however you wish (pirate flag, bullhorn, whisper chain)!
Why yes, it is! If you are unaccustomed to the balmy temps of Palm Springs in the summer, please take care of yourself. This means drinking more water than you think you need (cocktails do not count), cooling off in the pool, or inside at the ACE, and reapplying sunscreen and/or wearing a hat. Try to avoid being that-dude-who-went-to-the-ER-during-YxYY, m’kay?
To get started adding to the 2017 YxYY Wiki, be sure to click "Add to Collection" in the top right corner (by hovering over the "..." or the "YXYY005" label) and add your new page to the YxYY005 Collection.
Hillary HEachproject can have its own page, or just a paragraph in the master list. Be sure to put your name next to it, and you can use the @ symbol to tag/recruit people. Hashtags work to clump together ideas, too.
The Ace Hotel has a terrific restaurant on property called King's Highway. You'll be able to order by the pool and get room service. You can also eat in the restaurant, which will be open to the public as well (so be sure to wear your YxYY wristband at all times and if you're staying at the Ace it helps to charge it to your room.) They officially don't allow outside food on property but they're chill with our event with regard to what takes place in rooms. By the pool, though, they will not want outside food/drinks other than water bottles. But no glass containers!
