Apple @ San Jose: The nerds that run our world assemble this week for the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference. With over 100 technical and design-focused sessions held by Apple engineers and networking opportunities galore, everyone who has dreams centered on app development is heading to the McEnery Convention Center from June 4-8. So, if you’re trying to live your dream of creating Uber for ostriches, take Caltrain to the San Jose Diridon Station and arrive at the future in style.
Director’s Challenge San Mateo: Actors, filmmakers and writers that like working under pressure should look to San Mateo this Saturday, June 9, for MAKE a FILM in a DAY! Held in the Japanese Tea Garden in Central Park by Movie Making Throughout the Bay, participants have the opportunity to create short films that will be screened later this year. Central Park is a short walk from the San Mateo Caltrain Station, and is also next to a SamTrans ECR stop. Both Caltrain and SamTrans welcome riders dressed in the style of the Edo period, so come out and get famous.
Mexi-Best Walking Tour: There are some simple truths in life; the sky is blue, what goes up must come down, Mexican food is awesome. If you wish to celebrate the last one, you should consider the Downtown San Jose Mexi-Best Food Tour, organized by the good people at Dulce Vida Travel. Starting at San Pedro Square, participants will have the chance to learn about early California history while also getting tacos. Located a decent walk from the San Jose Diridon Caltrain Station, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn and eat, an option that, if it were more available, would result in me getting a PhD.
San Mateo County Transit District Board Week: It’s not only Board week here at SamTrans, its budget week. So if you want to weigh in on transportation policy, we’ll see you at the SamTrans Building at 1250 San Carlos Avenue in San Carlos for a trio of board meetings. We’ve got SamTrans (2 p.m., Wednesday the 6th), Caltrain (10 a.m. Thursday the 7th) and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority (5 p.m., Thursday the 7th), so come and join the party. If you can’t make it, please visit our livestream.
