What is the registration timeline for the event?
Wednesday, August 4, 2010.

Will the event be relevant to users of both Google SketchUp Pro and Google SketchUp (free)?

Do I need to own a license for Google SketchUp Pro to attend the event?

I've heard that this event is going to be an "unconference". What the heck does that mean?
At an unconference, session topics are decided upon at the event, by the attendees themselves.

Do I need to bring my own laptop computer to the event?
Most likely, yes. There will be lots of hands-on learning opportunities at Basecamp, and it's highly unlikely that we'll be able to provide computers for attendees.

Will attendees have wireless internet access?
Yes, the Google Office is very close to the Dairy center and you can access wireless there, However, since the Diary Center is a performance theater they do not have the bandwidth to provide everyone wireless. There will be limited access at the Diary Center..

What's the dress code?
We'll probably be wearing jeans and t-shirts, but you're welcome to wear anything you like.

What should I bring with me?
Bring yourself, your SketchUp questions, models and problems, and your laptop, if you have one.

Can I bring my family?
Unfortunately we won't have space on campus for anyone but you. Feel free to bring your family to Colorado, but note that they won't be able to attend the event.

Can I contact someone with questions about the event?
If you can't find the answers to your questions on this FAQ, then please feel free to send us an e-mail at 2010basecamp@gmail.com. We'll do our best to get back to you as soon as we can.

Will session materials be available after the event for people who could not attend in person?
We'd love for this to happen, and we'll do everything we can to make sure that it does. When and if this material becomes available, we'll announce it in the SketchUpdate newsletter and on our blog.
