Subject [ANNOUNCE] - Apache Meetup - April 26th - Arnhem, The Netherlands
Date Sat, 14 Apr 2012 19:08:05 GMT
Hi...

  A week or so ago I had a nice meeting with a couple of Apache friends in
a lovely place in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Among other Apache related
stuff we discussed how to get-together as many people interested in the
Apache community as possible on frequent/regular basis in the lovely
Netherlands.

We parted ways that evening with an idea to start organizing informal
meetups, get-togethers or hackathon flavored meetings in which people can
present, discuss, socialize and hack at the same time. The idea is to make
these small events community driven, easy to organize and more frequent as
much as possible so we can have as many of them as we can.

We are pleased to announce that the first of these events will be held in
the Grand Cafe Metropole in Arnhem, The Netherlands on Thursday April 26,
2012 from 17:00 - 22:00 (details below). People who would like to give
talks or presentations about existing Apache projects or that have an idea
which they would like to talk about are very encouraged and welcome to do
so. For the sake of planning it is preferable to let us know about these
talks ahead of time so we can schedule them.

Also, which is in the very core of such meetings, groups working on a
specific project where at least two of them are going to be part of the
event, give us heads up to spread that among others if they are interested
to join hacking on that project. In general, let us know your interests!

The nature of these events is very much hands-on. As all Apache events they
are open to anybody who is using or otherwise involved in one or more of
our projects. If you’d like to know more about Apache and how to get
involved in different activities happening inside the Apache community, be
sure to drop by!

Venue and Travel Info

The meetup will be held at the Grand Cafe Metropole in the Steenstraat 68
in Arnhem [1], starting at 17:00 until about 22:00. We have the big
upstairs room reserved there, which has plenty of room and includes WiFi
and power. The venue is provided by Luminis. Drinks and food are on you!

The closest train station, Arnhem Velperpoort, is within walking distance
(500m) and there is a parking garage next to that same station (in case you
can’t park in front of the Metropole). If you need any travelling
assistance, get in touch with Marcel as he lives nearby and knows the area.

Attending the meetup is free but it is required to register at [2] to help
us better planning the event

Very much looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible! See you
there :)

Marcel and Mohammad
