Take the stairs or elevator to the lower level and head East, though you will quickly lose orientation. Look for room 86-01 and note that the parking garage also provides access from a level below for $6, up from $1.50 or so. :(

YaCy (https://yacy.net/) is an open-source distributed/peer-to-peer search engine, where no central server is in control of the search index or ranking of results. It can be used to search the Internet through peer-to-peer nodes, or set up to search your own intranet. Daniel will provide an introductory overview of the architecture walk through setting it up for several use cases. He will also give an overview of what is coming with YaCy Grid, a second-generation implementation of YaCy.

Many will head to the Lucky Lab at 1945 NW Quimby St. after the meeting.
