I have had a couple of people ask me if it would be OK to throw a house
party as a LO Release Party celebration. I think the response that I got
on this question was that a donated space, like in a bar or
university/college room etc. would be preferred.
IMO if you are unable to host in such a public location, I would think
that a house party/celebration with LO users/dev/corporate would be just
as appropriate. Remember to take photos along with permissions to post
photos on our site! (As a rule, getting permissions from people who
appear in photos that are going to be posted on a site is strongly
For myself, as an example, I will try to have a public party, most
probably in a tavern setting where food is served, if I can. Otherwise,
I am also planning a house party with some LO users/clients/education as
I am just getting over a couple of major back surgeries and walking is
still a work-in-progress. I am still prone to tripping and
mis-calculating my steps. So the house party may be the best option for
Just make it personal and comfortable. Have fun!
When should I hold the party?
That, IMO, is up to you.
Some people will find that holding a party on the actual release day is
essential. This, I would consider essential for the TDF foundation
members and perhaps the devs. Great for marketing and publicity. Not
only that, but it will close a very short and condensed effort to a
great achievement. For which we are already applauding you for all of
your work. Thank you! You are all amazing individuals!
Others, like myself, will hold it perhaps a week or two after the
release, as most of the people, who I hope to invite, will want to
download and use the suite first. In all fairness, we should allow them
the time to download and try out the suite before asking them to
celebrate the release of the suite. Most of my OOo users are waiting for
the final LO release as they use their OOo for production work. They
can't afford to use a beta version of anything.
