Are you an advanced developer, Web technology expert, Opera fan or avid Opera user? Then you and your friends are welcome to meet Opera in Bucharest on Saturday November 8, 2008. This is an informal gathering and a great chance to meet official employees of Opera, but also other fans and evanglists.
The venue is Caru cu Bere and we'll be present there from 4:00 p.m. There will be free food and drinks.
Our Vice President of Quality Assurance Snorre Grimsby will give a talk at this meet up.
We encourage everyone to bring their CV and meet representatives from the Human Resources and Engineering departments of Opera Software if you're looking for a job or just have questions about recruitment.

Every month, our State of the Mobile Web report is packed with information about what people do with Opera Mini. But there are always some pieces of information that we don't include in the report. One interesting piece of information is what phones are popular among Opera Mini users.
As a part of this Insider Scoop we are publishing the most used phones by Opera Mini users and the top phones used to download Opera Mini last month. This information gives a cool perspective on what models have been popular in the last months and what are the latest best-selling phones.
This is not a scientific exercise, but with over 19 million unique users of Opera Mini, it gives an insight into what is popular.
- Nokia and Sony Ericsson dominate the list and are clearly the most popular brands among Opera Mini users.
- Opera Mini is popular with Blackberry users, when compared with the Blackberry global market share they rank very high among Opera Mini users.
- Opera Mini seems to be popular both in mid/low end phones as well on so-called smartphones. It seems that, regardless of whether you pay $10 or $300 for your phone, you still want "the Internet"
- The only model on the top 25 that is not from Nokia, Sony Ericsson or a Blackberry is the Samsung E250. No Motorola phones appear in the top 25... looks like those pink RAZRs are not so popular anymore.
