As some people maybe know, I am lecturing at Technical University of West-Flanders and every year we do a last year trip to USA. The last 5 years we always went to Seattle but this year we will go to San Franciso for the first time. Within 5 hours we are leaving Belgium :-). San Francisco , here we come !
Our program is a mixture of several company visits and some cultural activities.
On Friday we will do kind of Deluxe city tour, eat something at Fisherman’s Wharf and visit Muir Woods. Saturday we will go for a full day excursion to Yosemite Park. Sunday morning we will have a surprise breakfast at Treasure Island, the perfect spot for a picnic :-). And later on sunday we will watch some NBA game at the Arena in Oakland (Golden State Warriors vs Memphis Grizzlies).
On next monday we will start with the company visits: We start with CISCO and in the afternoon we are visiting Electronic Arts (EA). We will get a EA campus tour and some product demonstrations and presentations.
On tuesday we are going to INTEL where we will get some sessions and in the afternoon we are going to visit Stanford University
