FAQs:

1) Is there a fee?
Gangplank does not charge a monetary fee for use of space. We ask that if you find the space to be meaningful, you give back in a way that is meaningful to you.

2) Do I need to register in advance to reserve a desk or make an appointment?
We do not require any form of reservation to use our drop in space. Come on in. When you get here, almost anyone in the space can give you a tour. If you have questions, just ask and as you get to know the answers, help other newbies feel welcome when they come in.

3) Do you have meeting or event space available for reservation?
We have several conference style rooms available for use. To reserve a space more than a week out, email Chandler@gangplankhq.com. The week of, there is a sheet on the door of each room, you can write your reservation there as long as it is during regular office hours.

4) How can I get desk where I can leave my things?

As a community, we want as much of people’s presence and as little of their stuff as possible. We often find that those who are a good fit are typically the people who are around and giving back so often that we mistake them for the crew who do have desks. Come in, meet people, build relationships, and contribute where you can. The value in Gangplank is far more the relationships than a desk anyway.

5) When is the best time to come by?

Anytime we are open is good. Wednesdays tend to be popular as we have our brownbag speaker series from noon to 1pm and hacknight that evening. If it is your first time coming in, events are also a good way to connect. Check out our facebook page and meetup.com page for upcoming events.

Coming soon:
-Virtual tour of the space.
-Information on equipment that is available for use and how to reserve it.

Mobile Launch Weekend

• Do you have an idea for an app but don’t know how to get started?
• Would you like to learn the process of app development?
• Do you have computer graphics skills that could support app development?
• Can you create a web backend for a mobile app?
• Do you have business skill that could be used to guide a team or to promote a new app?
• Are you an educator that has skills to contribute to the design of an educational app?
• Would you like to work with a small team & develop an app from start to finish?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you should join us Friday night January 16th at 7pm at Gangplank in Chandler for the kickoff our our App Development Startup Weekend. That evening those with ideas for apps will be given a couple minutes to briefly describe their idea. Then the others will circulate & ask questions of the presenters to determine which group they would like to join. By the end of Friday evening we should have several groups formed. While the focus will be on iOS apps for Apple devices, teams can choose to develop on other platforms or even cross platform.

On Saturday January 17th, the groups that are formed will meet at Gangplank in Chandler to develop their plan & start the design of the app they are developing. During the day information will be presented on how to develop the app in phases so you can get a prototype out quickly, move to a version that can be tested in focus groups & finally get the product in available to customers in a place like the Apple store. Depending on the complexity of the app, the goal is to have an app that can demonstrated in one to two months & will be ready to deliver to customers in 2-5 months. Limited business coaching will be available to all teams to help them be accountable & keep moving forward. More comprehensive business coaching will be provided to any of the teams that wish to continue working together after their app is released with enhanced versions or other ideas.
