Conferences & Meetups

When we heard eZ Conference is happening again, we didn't think twice about going! Igor,Ivo and Vjeran packed their bags and prepared for a week in NYC. The conference itself was held on November 3-5 with many prominent members of the community attending and/or giving talks and workshops. Among them was our Ivo, who talked about building a content and e-commerce monster with eZ and Sylius for the future. eZ Sylius integration, a combination of two big open-source products, was developed in collaboration with Keyteq and Locastic and shared with the community.

The last day of eZ Conference was reserved for the eZ Awards ceremony. Out of 9 categories, we were nominated in 4, with Ivo winning the eZ Social Supporter of the Year award! \o/

On Friday, Ivo went to the eZ Publish Innovation Board meeting, where they considered eZ Systems' future and plans for 2016.

Besides the eZ-related events, our crew managed to go to Future of Web Design Conference,Symfony, PHP & eZ Publish Meetup and Geeks & Suits Meetup. An eventful week :)

Ivo's adventures continued in Belgrade, where he attended Pioneers of the Balkan, the region’s largest venture capital conference.

Meanwhile in Croatia :) Maja went to Web::Strategija, a conference on (digital) marketing, and Internet Marketing Meetup Zagreb, where the local community discussed e-commerce.

Sites launched

Not one, not two, but three websites were launched in November! Puls berufe is a Swiss website for health professionals that contains job offers and career guidance. Project lead and design were provided by our partner Prime and implemented by us.

For Grand Mercure, a brand of hotels run by French multinational corporation AccorHotels, we implemented the website based on the design and project lead of Quo, a specialist brand and communications agency for the travel, tourism and hospitality industries.

Continuing our successful cooperation with Iskon, a new website, which we fully implemented in eZ Publish CMS, was launched. We were able to deeply integrate the CMS with the several existing principal Iskon systems while the design was provided by Bambi Bold.

Community

In the anticipation of the release of PHP 7 and Symfony 3 (which was released at the end of the month!), Ivo wrote down a few thoughts about PHP in general and the important factor that keeps it on the top - its frameworks, focusing on Symfony.

The eZ Community reached another milestone - 200 members on Slack! Everyone is invited to join :)

Also, our Igor celebrated his 10 eZ years - congrats!

Extras
