EU Haxe Summit 2020 Announcement
It has been three years since we came together in Amsterdam for the Haxe Summit 2017. Following the proud tradition of European Haxe conferences, the coastal city in the lowlands was the last host to Haxe users on European soil at a large scale. Since then, the Haxe Summit traveled across the pond to another coast and found itself instantiated in Seattle for the Haxe Summit 2018 and 2019.
Not to be outdone, the European Haxe tribes filled the void in their heart by organizing smaller Haxe meetups and conferences. Cities like Luxembourg, London and Hamburg saw what was labeled HaxeUp Sessions - a mix of conference and party where Haxe users had the chance to get together, have fun and talk about Haxe. But all this started elsewhere...
The HaxeUp events in Linz am Rhein
In the Summer of 2018, saddened by the fact that no official European Haxe conference was to take place that year, we had this ad hoc idea to invite a bunch of people into our living room to give some relaxed talks about Haxe. It turned out that all you really needed for such an event was a webcam, a microphone, and an audience. Several core contributors joined us, as did various representatives of our Haxe Foundation partners. Also, the beautiful Rhineland blessed us with great weather, which contributed to an amazing atmosphere.
So much so that almost everyone (including the good weather) returned one year later for the HaxeUp 2019. And they brought even more people this time! I was privileged to announce the release of Haxe 4.0 in the comfort of my own living room. But alas, said living room had now reached its capacity. Were we to expand this event again, we would have to look for a different venue. And then, during a casual stroll through town one day, we passed the town hall and an idea was born.
