Ubuntu 8.04 release party in Montreal

This is an invitation to all who will be in or around Montreal, QC, Canada next April 24th. Full party info and details at:

We’ll be partying real hard at St-Sulpice bar and I hear other parties are organizing in Quebec province.

I’d also like to challenge other party organizers, do you think you can have the biggest party out there ? Last time we had close to 200 people in Montreal, this time we are a bit better organized. One specific thing that has helped us a lot is inviting people IN ADVANCE and PERSONALLY 🙂 We welcome all to copy and improve our french and english invitation.

We are also using a Facebook event for RSVPs, local mailing lists and contacting media. We’ve lined up a few sponsors too for swag (and more). Any further ideas ?

  1. Hey man! It’s the St Sulpice, not St Sulpice (from memories a few years back). Besides, « supplice » in French is the kind of extreme suffering you get from being tortured, nothing you want for a release party 🙂

    Have fun, I wish I could be back there. Montreal is the best place!

  2. The Ubuntu 8.04 release party in Montreal is going to set the benchmark in term of release-party-coolness-factor for a long time. Mark my words!

  3. Dude.. can minors ( like 14-15 year olds) go to this bar. Me and my friend want to go. If so, can we get a lift from the West Island? Pointe-Claire??

  4. i dont understand what is the installfest

    can the organizers of this party make a party for the next release where ppl under 18 can go?

  6. Bon, j’ai manquer le gros party pour 8.04.
    Comment ca ete? Ya pas eu trop de hooligans BSD qui ont foutu le bordel j’espere? 😉

    I guess I’ll have to catch up for the 8.10 release this fall.
    If its still going to be on October 30th, should ge quite a bash smack in Halloween party season time.
    And you just know some fanboi will come dressed as a cosmonaut!
    Moi, je metterais mon costume de gorille et je crierais « Developers, developers! » comme un debile.
