Foreman's 7th Birthday Events

Foreman’s 7th Birthday

It’s our birthday! On July 13th, we’ll be 7 years old. In combination with the 1.12 release, including the long-awaited Puppet 4 support, we think this worth celebrating!

Time for a party!

We’re planning a series of regional events though out the second half of July and early August. Below you’ll find details of what’s currently planned - do check back for updates. All the events will of course be available on the events page and the ICS calendar.

If you want to organise a Foreman event yourself, please do! We’ll be happy to support you, just drop a line to the community guy.

Foreman @ Techmeetup Edinburgh (13th July 2016)

The birthday party kicks off in Edinburgh, where our very own community guy, Greg Sutcliffe will be giving a Foreman talk to the Techmeetup community. This is likely to be an overview talk, covering the basics of Foreman, what’s new in 1.12, and it’s awesome community.

This talk should be recorded and livestreamed (links will be added here once we know them) so do tune in and get involved.

Foreman @ Inuits Antwerp (13th July 2016)

Inuits will host a Foreman meetup on the 13th of July, CEST. We’ll have some speakers (if you want to speak, please contact us) and we will throw a small party to celebrate the Foreman Birthday. If weather allows it, we will also have a swim!
