Some very cool news out of the YUI project as their namesake library turned 3 years old yesterday (That’s like 25 in internet years, right?). The framework has really grown-up to provide a solid foundation on which to build upon and developers are certainly benefiting from it’s excellent documentation and QA. To celebrate YUI’s birthday, the team will be hosting a happy hour:
The YUI Library turned three years old this month and we’d like to invite you — our community of developers and implementers — to come out and celebrate! To celebrate our third birthday (and our 2.7.0 release), we’ll be hosting a recession-chic happy hour at the Blue Chalk Cafe in downtown Palo Alto, Thursday, February 26 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Nothing too fancy, but we’ll have fun goodies to give away and the first few rounds of drinks are on us (until the tab runs out). Details and signups are at Upcoming. Hope to see you there!
Should prove to be lots of fun.
But that’s not all! You’ll have plenty to talk about at the happy hour as the team just released YUI 2.7.0:
