WANdisco Host Apache Meetup for Local Developer Community

This week, core members of the Apache Software Foundation, Greg Stein and Hyrum Wright, have been visiting WANdisco at our offices in Sheffield, UK. To celebrate, we hosted a special, one-off ‘Apache in the Pub’ event at the Rutland Arms, giving the local developer community the opportunity to meet these prominent ASF members, in the local pub!

The event was a great success, with a packed room of developers all debating open source topics: Subversion, Apache, Python, and of course the brand-new Apache Bloodhound project. We even got to hear some of Greg’s tales from his time at Google!

The event attracted much attention on Twitter. Here’s a selection of our favourite tweets from Apache in the Pub attendees:

  • Looking forward to a pint @RutlandArms with @gstein & @hyrumwright of @theasf tonight courtesy of @wandisco & @gistwire
  • @WANdisco @rutlandarms Apache in the Pub was a good event with a great turnout. Big thanks to you both for organising and hosting.
  • Good beer @RutlandArms and interesting people did fix bad day. Met a bunch of new bods from @WANdisco and talked about #bloodhound 🙂
  • @WANdisco @dchetwynd Hope everyone who came had a good time – those who didn’t missed out!

Thank you to our local GIST Foundation, and the ASF, for helping us host this free event for the local developer community. After receiving some great feedback, and being overwhelmed by the full attendance, we’re convinced the local community wants to see more of these sorts of events. If you have any ideas or feedback on community events you would like to see in the local area, please don’t hesitate to leave us a comment at the blog, or alternatively Tweet or email us.

We hope you all had a great time at Apache in the Pub, and we hope to see you at another WANdisco-hosted event soon!
