On Drupal.org, the Drupal 8 core maintainers wrote, "Based on our experience with our successful release candidates, we are confident to announce that Drupal 8.0.0 will be released on November 19, 2015!” Congratulations to the D8 core team and to everyone who worked hard to make Drupal 8 a reality.

To celebrate the release of Drupal 8, we're teaming up with Fastly and LAX Coworking for a night of Drupal, fun, and celebration. This event is free to all Drupal community members.

Come celebrate in style with your Drupal community on Drupal 8's official release date, November 19th!

We have a great Westside venue who's happy to host us. It's at LAX Coworking in Westchester (just a couple minutes away from where we had our Drupal 7 Release Party a couple years ago).

Looking forward to this meetup

Drupal 8 has been a long time in coming. I have not had much time to poke around D8 much, just to test some of the features. Now that it is fully baked I want to dig into the RESTful Services, as well as what can be done with site building.

As far as this meetup I am anxious to learn more about Fastly, it sounds like some good magic for little money.

It will also be nice to meet with a larger group of Drupal supporters than our SGV meetup.

Only a week more to wait!!!

I'm looking forward to this celebration of this major milestone for Drupal. Since I'm way up in the Ojai Valley on the west side of Ventura County, this is a great opportunity for me to connect with Drupalistas from the wider LA area. I am a partner with Congruity Works, a Drupal firm that specializes in integrating Drupal with a variety of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) databases for mid-size non-profits.

I'm also interested in learning more about Fast.ly and what it has to offer our clients.

See you all next week!

RSVP now to the Drupal 8 Release Party!

Our marquee sponsor, Fastly, is both presenting and has provided a very generous food and drinks budget for our launch party. Thanks, Fastly!

If anyone else would like to sponsor the Drupal 8 Release Party: Los Angeles, has a presentation they'd like to give, or any job announcements to make, there's still time to sign up. Just contact us at http://www.drupal.la/contact or here in the comments.
