Hong Kong dlang Meetup

Several of us from the D community will be in Hong Kong on a business trip next week (me, John Colvin, Atila Neves, and Ilya Yaroshenko), and our client, Symmetry Investments[1], has offered to sponsor a dlang meetup. We haven't decided when exactly to meet up yet, but we're looking to meet up sometime during the week of the 11th - 15th (probably on Thursday or Friday evening) and figured that we should see if anyone here was interested in showing up and would thus have some stake in when during the week it happened.

The current plan is that the meetup will take place at Symmetry's main office in Chater House in Central Hong Kong.

Some open source dlang stuff whose developement was paid for by Symmetry: https://github.com/kaleidicassociates

Of note is https://github.com/kaleidicassociates/excel-d which Atila talked about at dconf this year.

That would be the one week in September I couldn't be in HK (yay  mid-semester tests), but if the business trip is only for one week then I won't be in HK at all.

Sounds interesting.  The 14th and 15th aren't good for me, otherwise the rest of the week is okay.

Are you staying near the office?

+1!

Let me know the dates and I'll blast it to the channels I'm on (Codeaholics, Dim Sum Labs hacker space.)

I think that most of us are arriving sometime this weekend and leaving sometime the next weekend. Based on some of what he said previously, Atila might be staying longer, but I don't know. If you can't be there next week though, he's probably the only one of us four that you'd stand a chance of seeing by coming to Hong Kong the week after. So, I guess that it's just bad timing. Sorry.

I'll be staying at the Marriott, which is supposedly fairly close, but I don't know exactly where it's situated with respect to the office. I don't know where the others are staying.
