StripeCon, the conference dedicated to SilverStripe CMS/Framework, is coming to Wellington, New Zealand for the first time. On the other side of the world, the 4th StripeCon EU, SilverStripe European Conference 2017, is scheduled to arrive in the heart of the Mediterranean at Malta.

Back to the birthplace


SilverStripe CMS was born in February 2000 in the ‘coolest little capital of the world’ Wellington. It was the dotcom boom with lots of hype, craze, as well energy and passion. Three Wellingtonians, Sam Minnée, Sigurd Magnusson and Tim Copeland had a vision for limitless possibilities of the web. The result was what we know today as the open source SilverStripe CMS/Framework, endorsed by thousands of community members, hundreds of developers and agencies, and downloaded over 1 million times all around the world.

With SilverStripe 4 stable release coming in October, we will mark this new era by having StripeCon NZ in the city where the CMS was born. The event will remind all SilverStripers why they fell in love with this CMS in the first place.

What to expect at StripeCon NZ

We are still planning the details for StripeCon NZ but here’s a quick run-down of what you should expect from StripeCon NZ:

  • When: Friday 24 November 2017. We will have pre-event drinks at a local bar the evening before (Thursday 23 November 2017).

  • Where: Te Papa – the iconic national museum and art gallery of New Zealand.

  • Activities and swag: We may have a game or two for you to compete with your fellow SilverStripers.
