Community Meeting in Stockholm/Sweden

Company Blogs May 6, 2011 By Olaf Kock Staff

Working for Liferay in my position means travelling a lot. This is great in that I see many interesting places in the world. However, to make it more interesting, I'd like to meet many interesting people in the world as well.

This month will bring me to Stockholm, and while the exact date and place for a meet-up might still change, I'd like to announce a community meeting as early as possible to give possible attendees as much upfront notice as possible.

The current plan is for We will meet on Wednesday, May 18 at a pub in the Stockholm inner city area the Bar in Hilton Slussen at 18:00. Feel free to drop by if you're curious about Liferay, if you're using CE or EE or if you just want to have a chat. However, to see what size of table or ballroom to allocate, please indicate your interest in the comments below - just post "+1" when you're planning to come, then keep an eye on this post or on  twitter for last-minute updates. And if you can't come: Please spread the word.

The agenda? There's none! Everything goes. Just as with the dresscode.

And if you're not in Stockholm but somewhere else in europe: I'm planning to continue this on other opportunities as well, so keep an eye on more announcements.

Edit on May 13: Time and location have been fixed. It seems Stockholm is quite busy that day, but feedback here and through mail has been good, so I'll keep the date to what I announced initially:

Wednesday, 18. May. 18:00 at the Bar in Hilton Slussen. If you don't recognize me try to locate my Liferay backpack.
