I foresee... A devMEET!!! :D :D

Mon Mar 31, 2014, 3:08 PM by Triska:icontriska:

Greetings fellow members,

It is our deepest pleasure to announce a new August devMEET!!!

This year, to take advantage of the 15th, which is a bank holiday in several countries, our devMEET will take place on Saturday, August 16th!

As for where it'll be hosted in the city of Lyon, France.
The city of Lyon is one of the most ancient cities of civilized Europe: capital city of Gaul territories, it was the main city of what was the current France, Benelux, part of Switzerland, and Nothern Spain. It hosts several museums, including the "Musée Miniature & Cinéma" (en), the "Musée de l'Imprimerie" (wikipedia, en), Fourvière Mount (wikipedia, en) with its archeological sites and the Basilica Notre Dame de Fourvière (wikipedia, en), and the Primatial Catherdral Saint Jean-Baptiste and Saint Etienne (wikipedia, en) with its unique astronomical clock, among other nice cultural sites.

The most important cultural site for us, as it is going to be our rendez-vous site, is the Golden Head park (Parc de la Tête d'Or), one of the biggest urban parc in France. Created the same year as Central Park in New York, it is, for those who know Amsterdam or London, our counterpart of the Vondelpark or Hyde Park.

On the chapter of accessibility, Lyon is one of the easiest cities to access in France:
* 4th airport in France with international connections: Saint Exupéry Airport, flown to by both national and low-cost companies;
* Major motorways coming from Paris, Strasbourg, Switzerland, Italy (which are two countries not 200km away from Lyon), and South West of France connecting Lyon with Spain;
* International coach companies stop in Lyon;
* High Speed Railway connections with Spain (direct from Barcelona), Italy (direct from Milano and Torino), Paris, Strasbourg, and even Brussels, Basel or Frankfurt am Main. Not to mention classic trains from everywhere in France or from Geneva.

So, to sum up this already long journal, a devMEET will be organized in Lyon, France, on August 16th this year. We are eager to meet you people! :eager: Be sure to vote on our new poll: will you come to the devMEET?
