Summer Camp

We closed Early Bird ticket sale at the end of June, sold a few regular and late tickets, and the most amazing thing happened: on August 17 we proudly announced that Summer Camp 2015 was sold out!

We’ll give you a few numbers:
120 participants
from 19 countries
15 sponsors
22 speakers
who held 23 (hands-on) workshops
in 3 days
and tracks - eZ Publish/eZ Platform, PHP, and Symfony

Everything else regarding this amazing experience read in the blog post by our MajaBorna, and Zvonimir, as well as in the reviews by our eZ Publish Summer Camp speaker Jani Tarvainen of Exove, one of the Bronze Sponsors, and our returning participant Bruno Škvorc of Sitepoint, Summer Camp’s Global Media Partner.

Don’t forget YOU are the reason behind this whole Summer Camp concept. It is our way to exchange experience and share the know-how through and between the workshops, and to maintain the quality relationship between our various communities through casual hangouts. Summer Camp is definitely our biggest contribution to the community, but we also try to do a little something on the side :)

Community

So, the second biggest news is eZ Publish & Sylius integration being presented at SymfonyLive London! After open-sourcing it some time ago with our partners Locastic andKeyteq, great recognition came in the form of being shortlisted for the free community stand in London. Thanks to the many votes from the community and all those who appreciated the project we became one of the SymfonyLive London’s community partnersSee you in London in 10 days!

Also, there was some exciting news for the eZ Community! After years of development and testing, our Edi released eZ Tags 2.0 with multilanguage support, including TagsBundle and legacy extension.

Speaking of the eZ Community, after only a month its group on Slack reached 120 people, and has been growing ever since. Great way of communicating, indeed.

Crew

In July, we had reinforcements: our summer interns were in the zone working on the live voting system for the Summer Camp. Once again, they did a great job!

The rest of the crew was working hard on the projectsSummer Camp preparations were under way, and they also found time to provide support to the students, their questions and dilemmas.

With the summer months behind us, stay tuned for more interesting September news!
