Apache party & hackathon in Rome: you’re invited!

Come Celebrate the Spirit of Open Source 3-5 October in Rome, Italy!

The Cocoon community proudly invites all ASF contributors to the sixth edition of the Cocoon GetTogether, the annual gathering of the world’s foremost Cocoon users, developers, and enthusiasts.  In addition to a "conference day" on October 5th dedicated to all things Cocoon, the
event will also feature a two-day hackathon for developers to meet, greet, and collaborate in an informal environment.

In keeping with our long-standing participation with other Open Source communities, the hackathon is open to all Apache Projects (incubating ones too!) interested in getting together for a couple of days of fun. We’ll happily make room for new friends!

In addition to hacking fun, attendees are welcome to join the social activities that have been scheduled around the conference: Cocoon GetTogether evening events are all about fun — hacking, collaboration, and community-building meets local flair and flavor. Join us for stunning architecture, outstanding gastronomy, and some of the hottest nightlife available, from leisurely city walks and bus tours, to authentic pizza and slow-food hero porchetta, to sunny Nastro Azzurro and noble Nebbiolo.

The Cocoon GetTogether is considered among the best Apache community events: with tickets at just EUR125 for the full three-day program, you can’t afford to miss out!

  1. Whoops sorry for the wrong comment, but I thought it was some sort of captcha.
    Anyway I am a bit disappointed, because the ticket is too expensive, and the events are in working days.
    Last but not least, it is a pity not to have an Apache meeting for all projects. Having an Apache event near home is fine, but with these conditions I think I won’t come.

  2. Antonio,
    your points are noted. However, keep in mind that the ticket price is the bare minimum required to cover expenses (room, tables, power supplies, wi-fi, food and beverage). At 40EUR, that seems quite a bargain to me. Also, the general consensus was having the event during the week. Assuming you are local, how about coming for the evening events?
