3 Locations, 1 Party - #celebr8D8
After over four years in development, the day finally arrived. November 19, 2015; the day when Drupal 8 was released. Of course this was a very good reason to celebrate. So all of our three locations, Zürich, Austin, and Cape Town joined the global community with hundreds of Drupalistas in cities around the world for the global Drupal 8 Release Party!
Cape Town festivities
Our office in South Africa's Mother City started the celebrations off. Even though he's Zürich-based, our CTO, Michael Schmid, was in town and held a presentation about Drupal 8, followed by fine food and drinks of course. Here are some impressions:
The Zürich party
Zürich was up next. We started our party with lightning talks about Drupal 8 where fellow Developers talked about the experiences they made with Drupal 8 so far. After that it was time for blue cocktails, beers, and cake (of course).
Party in #ATX
Five long hours after Zürich and Cape Town finished off their last bites of cake, the Austin team got their party started, one they co-hosted with our friends from Four Kitchens.
The highlights of the night included cold beer, Blacks BBQ, Drupal 8 conversations, raffle prize winners, a celebration cake, and a custom made Drupal 8 piñata that may or may not have been filled with travel-size adult beverages (nobody knows anymore...).
