Vancouver Joomla! Day - June 14, 2008

Post by Wendy » Mon Nov 05, 2007 3:20 am

Hi everyone,

It is my hope to have a Joomla! day event in the GVA (greater Vancouver area) sometime at the end of February 2008.

At this point, nothing is set in stone.  I'm requesting some volunteer help from other locals to see what kind of plans we can come up with.

Any takers?

@Alex - please move this to the correct location if I have not posted in the right place :)

update: Registration is now open @ http://www.vancouver.joomla.ca

Thanks for the sticky Alex!

Rastin, that's great news.  I have some requests out for event locations.  Hopefully more info to follow very soon.

Any chance you could encourage your invitees to post here if they're interested in helping out?  As I'm not located in the city, any help in ideas for locations (or anything else) would be greatly appreciated.

Let's set a tentative date for February 23, 2008. 

edit: changed date

You're most welcome. I'd suggest we use a combination of This thread, http://www.Tazzu.com, and facebook to organize the event. I'd think a lot of people will show up for this one. It would be nice to showcase some projects too.

All good ideas.  I'm going to try and get a Joomla Day! site up this week so we can have a central location for attendance records, discussion ideas, projects, etc.  Oh, and a location!  Anyone have any good ideas for a venue that can host us for the day?

Wendy, I met several Canadians at Joomla Day USA West held at Google Plex in California several months ago.  All were keen to participate in Joomal Day Vancouver.  The Montreal contingent had also registered the domain joomla.ca to rally the joomla troops across Canada.  PM?

That's great news Bruno!  Do you have any means of contacting some of these folks?  If we can direct people to this thread for now, it will give us a better idea of interest and numbers. 

I sent you an email the other day.  Rastin and I will be talking about some details tomorrow and then hopefully we get the ball rolling full speed to March 15 :)

I just talked to my friend, and we are in.  Going to fly into Seattle on Tues (6-10), go up to Vancouver on Fri(6-13), and go home on Mon (6-16), so looks like I'll be there!

Hi Wendy,

Drop me a PM with your Skype, MSN or whatever IM program you use and we can talk :)

I think Brad has already spoken to you briefly. Now that the Vancouver event is on June 14th we can throw our full support behind it and will do whatever we can to help. I think Brad, myself and some others from Rochen will also be able to attend.

Bruno, I have sent you an email my friend! :)

@ircmaxell - rearranging your holiday plans - and your friends' holiday plans - to attend a Joomla!Day.  Now that is dedication :)  Looking forward to meeting you.

@Chris - That is great news!  I had actually heard that the Rochen folks would be in town (the date change to June was made in light of that ;) ) .  I will send you my skype details.

I do believe that I am EXTREMELY interested in coming and meeting all of you fine people! It would be a great opportunity to give a presentation on upgrading or migration! I can't wait!

Wouldn't mind having my business help sponsor and support the event as well. We shall see!

I am pleased to say that Team Rochen is all booked up to be in Vancouver. Going to be three of us coming along.

Wendy, I think Brad is going to contact you sometime soon (if he has not already) to see what support we can offer for the event in terms of sponsorship etc.

Also, we are most likely going to be throwing a customer (plus special guests) dinner and party the evening of June 14th.

See you all in Vancouver! :)

Mr Landry, I expect you to be there, it has been too long :)

Considering you skipped the London meetup and I will miss the Netherlands gathering. So a perfect excuse to come to Vancouver, chat Joomla and hang out and have a few beers with me. What could be more exciting :geek:
