Bonjour,

Calendar marked! ... Just around the corner from me on Mackay :)

There's a Guinness (or 3) there with name on it :)

Cheers!

No, no cost at all. Of course the beer or pepsi's are not free... hehe. Hopefully the day will be nice because they have a good terrasse there where we can discuss Joomla and associated topics.

I'm looking forward to making new contacts, hopefully we will see a couple of coders there. I am more into the SEO side of things.

If we could have a total head count a couple of days before the event so I can reserve a large enough space at the pub it would be great.

I checked on http://community.joomla.org and I don't see it anywhere. Don't expect too much people if there's no announcement!

@mandville -

Thank you for posting assistance for this community member. I sent notice to Alex a few days ago, too. I am also concerned that perhaps it's not clear that one must first get approval for an official Joomla! Day. Hopefully, Alex, or whomever is in charge of Events if it's not Alex, has already taken care of this or will also provide assistance.

Have fun in Montreal! If you don't already have a Joomla! User Group, I would encourage you to sign up for that with Open Source Matters!

Thanks!
Amy

NP Amy.

It may also assist others looking to hold an event to know there is a system to ensure you hold an officially recognised event.

Also please note the event is in the Irish Embassy 'Pub ' not a building with diplomatic status!

[UPDATE]

There was a bit of disorganization regarding the Joomla get-together last night at the Irish Embassy Pub, but there were 9 of us at one table in the back and I found out on Twitter that @meoloman was there but we didn't connect :( Not sure if the OP or any others were there, but at our table, it was agreed that we should pursue forming an Official Joomla User Group, so that is what we plan to do! :) Anyone from here in Montreal can PM / email me from here and we will attempt to get this rolling ASAP :)

Cheers!

Glad you guys eventually found one another on Twitter! :-P Sounds like each table had a good time. In case you are unaware, there is an application process to become a recognized Joomla! User Group. You can find out more http://opensourcematters.org/joomla-user-groups.html

Great to see you meeting together!
Amy :)

Sounds good to me :) But for next time it would be better to have a more visible sign or decide where in the place to sit
