The Carnegie Mellon University Gates Center of Computer Science is on the main campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was occupied in August 2009 with the interconnected Hillman Center. The two buildings make up the Gates-Hillman complex.
Western PA Linux Users Group will meet there on March 7, 2011 for a site visit of the Red Hat labs.
We will meet at the Tazza D'Oro coffee shop aka "The R Cafe" inside the Gates Center on the 3rd floor.
The R Cafe is immediately as you walk into the 3rd floor main entrance of the Gates Center. Click here for a photo of the actual door.
