Paris devMEET Weekend!It was a blast!So I was one of the staff attending the Paris devMEET on Saturday, and I must say, Paris, you know how to throw a party! I was beginning to worry that there wasn't room in that bar for everyone. danlev, Ayame-Kenoshi, haldron, mattdanna, and I arrived at about 12:30, shortly after coming in from Lyon, though by the time we'd arrived, SaTaNiA, ZeldaDreams, itsfrits, namenotrequired, Anoya, and AnaNaszynska were already there! So, even though we were set to start at 2, the party started MUCH earlier than that. I wish I could have kept track of everyone who showed up, because there were so many people. SO MANY PEOPLE. As well as the aforementioned, and not counting staff, I also saw leomon32, ArikaRinkishika, Drunken-Splice, mossthewolf, Quinn-G, Meteorskies, BaKaShou, BreeBirdtheInsane, and a ton of other people whose usernames I didn't write down and should hav
Voilà! Paris deviantMEET Wrap-Up! Bonjour deviants!This past weekend, deviantART teamed up with DeviantMEET-Paris to host a deviantMEET that ultimately yielded over 250 deviant attendees! As you may have read in the latest Site Update, our Devious Technology, Product, and Product Marketing teams are currently in France -- participating in a staff retreat, that has everyone working hard to improve and optimize many key areas of deviantART. On Saturday, June 9th, we took a small break from our discussions and traveled to the City of Light to meet and mingle with Parisian deviants. Here's a quick recap of the day's events!We met at Mécano Bar, where we were welcomed by early arriving attendees and current/former Community Volunteers -- including AnaNaszynska, and Anoya, namenotrequired and itsfrits, who traveled all the way from Th
Paris was EPIC!A little late report on the devMEET in Paris! I had to recover yesterday, haha. I've been reading through reports from other deviants, friends and staff and looking at a gazillion of photos that were taken during the meet. I figured I'd write my own report on it! Could be a little TL;DR, but for those interested, continue reading!So, itsfrits (Frits) and namenotrequired (Bart) decided I had to be at the devMEET. Period. So they paid a huge amount for tickets and I couldn't be more thankful. It's definitely something I wouldn't have want to miss!June 9th, at 4.45 AM my alarm went off. I got up all excited! I usually have a hard time getting out of bed, but today was different in every way possible, haha. I got ready and left my place at 5.45 and got on the 6.00 AM train to Amsterdam. I texted Frits to make sure he was awake and didn't sleep through his alarm like two years ago when we went to Berlin He was awake! Yay! Got a text back from AnaNaszynska (Ana) that she was ke
