Community Meeting in Rome/Italy on 7. March

Company Blogs March 6, 2013 By Olaf Kock Staff

I'll be in Rome on 7. March 2013 and would like to keep up the infrequent habit to meet members of the community.

Unfortunately so far nobody answered with their intent to come - and my favoured venue just replied late that they'll have a concert that night, so it will be loud and crowded. So, I've opted for a low-effort meeting (at least for me): I've decided for Eur Suite Hotel at Via Prezzolini, 5, 00144 Roma and will be in the hotel bar from 19:00 on (if you're late (or early) and can't find us, ask at reception). I know, this is not central Rome, but given the current feedback situation is the one that I can cover easiest.

In case you still need motivation to come: I have a budget for beer and will be happy to share experiences (yours or mine)

If you want to come, please comment here or on twitter. You can also show up unexpected, but will make my life easier if you let me know upfront.

The current favourite location is close to Piazza dell'Emporio, quite central - but as I didn't yet hear back from the place, I'll leave it vague for now, but now you have a feeling of the distance to whereever you are.

As I don't know my way around in town I rely on your help with regards to the location:

My hotel is in Eur, close to Metro Laurentina - I know that this is not too central, but this is where I need to go back to in the evening. I'm taking suggestions where we could hold such a meeting (open for a central location that has not-too-complex travel back to Eur). Please comment on this blog entry or reply on twitter (@olafk) with location suggestions, remember to give travel directions and size of the location. Ideal would be a coworking space or a pub that has some space - e.g. is not too crowded on Thursdays.

Also, please give some feedback - either here or on twitter - if you intend to come, so that we get a rough idea of the expected group size.

I'll update this blog entry with the final location the day before the meeting. Last minute changes might go out on twitter, so check back.

Looking forward to meet you

I like 120 km away from Rome. I have worked in Rome. I'm developing my master thesis project with liferay.I've signed up to the german community as well.
There is a liferay italian community, but I don't think they would be able to organize the meeting so quickly.
There will be codemotion in Rome at the end of March (http://rome.codemotionworld.com/), but the call for papers is over I think.

Hi!

I'm interesting to meet you, I work in a company that would use liferay for his next businnes, so I would like to ask you something.

Have you decided what do you want to do? I'm not from Rome, so I can't help to find a location...

cheers

Hi Lorenzo,
I've updated the post with some feedback, unfortunately this last-minute organization is quite stressful, will update tomorrow, hopefully with the final location.
I hope you'll be able to make it,
Olaf

Hi Laura,
unfortunately I'll be a lot more than 120 km from rome for codemotionworld, but I'm in rome this week. I hope to get it rolling for thursday, but it's a really close call. Let me know if you'd travel to the meeting (I've updated the article)
