Symfony2 launch parties
Thursday is the day! That day, Symfony2 will be released. Of course, we don't want to let that pass without attention. So aside from the obvious "OMG IT'S OUT I NEED IT NOW" shout in the office that day, why not join fellow developers to celebrate the release of Symfony2? Several launch parties are scheduled already, and if there isn't one in your area, we invite you to organize one yourself!
If you want to organize your own launch party and get it promoted on this blog, please e-mail stefan [dot] koopmanschap [at] symfony-project [ dot ] org with the date, time and location (plus any other important information). We're aiming for launch parties to take place this thursday, friday or saturday but obviously you're free to organize the party whenever it works best for you!
Now for the currently scheduled parties. Of course, the country of Symfony2, France, has a launch party. In Paris, during a regular sfPot meeting, the Symfony2 release will be celebrated. Symfony fans are invited from 7:00pm on Thursday, 28th at the following location: The Lions Bar, 120 rue Montmartre - 75002 Paris
In Belgium, King Foo is organizing a Symfony2 launch party. They are also starting at 7:00pm on Thursday 28th. You can join the other symfonians in Leuven at Esperança (Cafe Alegria, Old Market Square/Oude Markt 31).
In The Netherlands, I am currently still busy organizing a launch party. I'm aiming at similar times as Belgium and France on Thursday, but I am anxiously searching for a good location. If any of you know of a nice office where we can organize this, please do let me know at stefan [dot] koopmanschap [at] symfony-project [ dot ] org.
And remember, contact me if you want me to add your local launch party to this blogpost!
