WBEZ: where we’re going, what we’re doing

It is on for this Wednesday at WBEZ.

WBEZ is located on Navy Pier. Plan on meeting NO LATER than 3:50. We will meet just inside the main doors of the Pier:

You should bring your presentation & walkthrough on a flash drive. TEST IT BEFOREHAND, so you are sure that it works and that it copied over correctly.

I will be bringing a Mac laptop, and they will have a PC. If you could let me know in advance (like in the comments here) what software you used for your presentation, that would be great.

See you there!

  1. Used Powerpoint on a Mac. How does one go about zipping a file?

    • sinker says:

      On a Mac, highlight a file and control-click on it. You’ll see the option to “archive” the file (if you’re on an earlier OS) or “compress” the file. Either way, it creates a .zip file.

    I don’t think I will be able to get there by 3:50. I am in class until 3:20.. What even is the bus # to take there from Campus?

    • sinker says:

      What bus number? Have you heard of Google??

      Bus #29 goes from State, between Harrison & Congress, straight to Navy Pier. Should take no more than 20 minutes.

      Walking could be done in barely more than a half hour–it’s only two miles away.

      And a cab would get you there in less than 10 minutes for less than $10.

      See you at 3:50!

  3. Used keynote on a Mac. See you there at 3:50
