For the second year, GitHub Universe is taking place at the Palace of Fine Arts—the historic site of the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition and one of the most photographed buildings in the city. After World War II, it was also a military storage depot, a warehouse for the Parks Department, and even a telephone book distribution center.
