After a successful SilverStripe Europe Conference in Linz (Austria) last year, a lot has happened. SilverStripe has opened an office in London and the SilverStripe European Meetup group is booming, which gives organisers of the conference a perfect opportunity to get together again to make the conference even more awesome this year.
With the help of SilverStripe, we are proud to announce: StripeCon 2015 - The SilverStripe European Conference 2015! It is a FREE community based event, held over two days (16th and 17th of October) in SilverStripe London's office and open to everyone who works in the web development world. We'll be having a pre-conference meetup where attendees can socialise and have a few beers at a local bar before the conference starts.
Many speakers are lining up to talk about SilverStripe framework and/or CMS, including co-founder and CEO of SilverStripe - Sam Minnée. There will be workshops, demos of projects, and 5-10 minute lightning talks where anyone can stand up and share a short story. We also have 5 private PHPStorm licenses to give away. And much, much more...
The conference is made possible thanks to our sponsors - SilverStripe, 7dots, JetBrains, Bigfork, we::code, netwerkstatt and Twisted Bytes. Also, we have a lot of other friends to thank for giving us the awesome opportunity to organise this conference again.
We strongly believe that SilverStripe is one of the best CMS systems and PHP frameworks available today, and we want to bring together others working with the framework/CMS across Europe to share our knowledge. It will also be a great way to discuss how to improve traction for SilverStripe within Europe.
Visit stripecon.eu for more information. If you are ready to sign up, head over to the meetup page or contact us via the contact form on the website. Remember it is a free event and you can bring along your friends. However, there are limited spaces, so you have to be quick. And if you sign up before 1st October, we promise you a free t-shirt (and possibly a hug from the illusive ZauberFisch).
Whether you're an expert, intermediate, or have just heard about SilverStripe, or maybe even didn't know SilverStripe exists - it doesn't matter. We have topics and workshops planned for all levels of experience.
We hope to see you in London in October,
The SilverStripe StripeCon 2015 team
