Ceylon Tour Paris 2014

The Ceylon community is proud to organise the first Ceylon Tour conference in Paris on Friday the 24th of January 2014.

What is it?

It is a Ceylon conference, for an entire day, free, located in Paris. We will have most of the Ceylon core team, and members of the Ceylon community, who will give short talks and a workshop. Whether you don't know Ceylon yet, or want to know more, this is the place to be. We will present many aspects of the Ceylon language and ecosystem, as well as discuss the future of Ceylon.

Naturally, the conference should be a place of exchange and discussions, so we expect as much value between the talks as during the presentations.

Doors will open at 8h30 in the morning.

The Ceylon Tour conference is free, but we need you to register, so that you can be sure to have a seat, as availability is limited.

Please follow the usual fair-play rules:

  • Register fast, or you won't have a seat.
  • Only register if you are absolutely sure to come, this event is free, but that does not mean everyone should make a reservation and not show up, that would prevent other people from coming.
  • If you register and something unexpected prevents you from coming, cancel your reservation so someone else can take your place.
