Our Drupal 8 Release Party!

Drupal 8 Release Party

Drupal 8 is here! And, boy, did we celebrate. We would like to start the post with a thank you note to all participants who took the effort to make it to the venue and actively contribute to the Drupal 8 celebration on Nov 19th, 2015!

Why A Celebration You Ask?

Drupal 8 is the collective result of the hard work put in by 3.3k developers, worldwide. Getting the product out has taken a lot of effort and man-hours by enthusiastic Drupalistas from around the world. If this is not a reason enough to celebrate, then we don’t know what is.

The Drupal Fever

We could sense the enthusiasm among all our developers. Hosting a Drupal party was more of a ‘Pride factor’ and it also helped our Drupal developers connect with like-minded Drupal fanatics. The launch of Drupal was indeed a mark of innovation and excellence, which made the Drupal developers from all the city to step out and connect. The agenda for the day:

  • 6 pm – 7pm: The big Drupal 8 Presentation
  • 7 pm – 7:30 pm: Cake and Munchies
  • From 7:30 pm onwards: Opportunity to network and knowledge share
