We live in a time where knowledge is at our fingertips and educational programs from all disciplines are available online. Yet, people are people and most of us like to communicate in person. We still prefer going to conferences, meetups, and similar events where we can learn from our peers. The question arises: how to estimate the value you get from a conference?
Let’s start the new year by marking Web Summer Camp 2018 in our calendars for another summer week filled with quality hands-on workshops.
This year's SymfonyCon was organized by SensioLabs in Eastern Europe; to be exact in a very lovely city of Cluj-Napoca. Ivo and I had the privilege to take part in this year’s conference which took place at Grand Hotel Italia.
It's been six and a half months since I became a Netgen employee. In this short but productive period, I’ve been involved in many different projects and learned a lot regarding PHP, Symfony, eZ, and other technologies. However, it was time to move away from writing code and give a try to something else – writing my first blog post. Seven of us attended PHPSerbia Conference 2017, which was also my first conference, so I decided to share my impressions.
Why exciting? Well, this was supposed to be a blog post announcing the full program and calling you to get your tickets before the Early Bird tickets close, with the appropriate soundtrack. The truth is, you overwhelmed us by your interest and we are officially announcing that, as of last week, Web Summer Camp 2017 is sold out! Let’s take a look what we have prepared for you end of August.
Dear Campers, Super Early Bird tickets for Web Summer Camp 2017 are out! Check out all 2017 news and see you in Rovinj August 30-September 2!
We at Netgen and Salsa Adria Productions are ready for another #websc adventure, are you? :) The website is out, we know the time and the place, and are looking for speakers and sponsors. We've also released all 2016 PHP and eZ Publish workshop videos, check them out!
This year’s Summer Camp was bound to be interesting even before it started. We changed the brand, added a new topic, moved to a new venue, and were curious and eager to see how our participants would respond to the transition. Well, it turns out we had no reason to worry. :)
After a lot of work on rebranding the Summer Camp, we focused on assembling valuable workshops and other activities. Earlier this month the program was completed with the whole schedule available online. We also added info about the extras and, what is very interesting, we received enough requests for the Companion track, so we can confirm it will happen.
We are delighted to announce that Super Early Bird tickets for Web Summer Camp are available! Find below all info on the ticket price and what it includes as well as other Camp news and novelties.
Earlier this month we attended Smashing conference in San Francisco. An opportunity emerged to participate so we seized it. The conference was above average in the quality of talks and the city was, simply put, awesome. We enjoyed the trip despite the 9-hour time difference and a strong jet lag.
A few months ago, we announced the date and location for our 2016 Summer Camp event. We’ve been organizing the event since 2012 under the name eZ Publish Summer Camp. In 2014, we added PHP topics and adjoined PHP Summer Camp to it. This year, with the complex process of developing web solutions in mind, we added one more topic that is related to web design and decided to group the topics under one umbrella brand: Web Summer Camp.
When I heard about Ladies of New Business and that it was to be held in Zagreb, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew immediately I wanted to be there, for numerous reasons. The conference not only exceeded my expectations, but also provoked me to consider the role of women in the web industry.
We figured there is no better time to announce Summer Camp 2016 than the holiday season. We know the time and the place, the rest of the information will be on your way soon. Since we always strive for improvement, we have some exciting news for you in that department! So, here goes!
A lot of heartfelt moments have been shared on the SymfonyCon stage a couple of days ago in Paris at the third official SymfonyCon and the celebration of 10 years of Symfony framework - and we got to be there! So, read on, and we will share our impressions with you.
The SymfonyLive conferences are a great way to meet Symfony experts from all around the world. They are being held in several cities this year alone: Paris, Berlin, San Francisco and London. The 4th edition of SymfonyLive London was held on 17th and 18th of September 2015. My colleague Ivo and I attended, together with our partner and friend, Antonio of Locastic.
This is a short review of Vjeran and me visiting dConstruct conference in Brighton last week, with a few related remarks. The conference is a think-outside-the-box kind of event, an inspiration and a chance to see what’s around the corner. The theme of the conference was “Designing the Future”.
When we announced PHP & eZ Publish Summer Camp 2015 in March, we must admit we had only been secretly hoping for such an amazing turnout - the Camp was sold out! Now it’s time for us to share with you the gained experience, shared knowledge, and all the fun we had during and between the workshops.
This was supposed to be a quick recap of my experiences at SOLIDay Serbia (May 30th, 2015), but I’ve opted for a lengthier exposition because there was so much going on and a short post just wouldn’t do the event justice.
Ever since Vitaly Friedman announced that last years’ Freiburg event is to be reenacted and the speakers lineup started to form, it was clear the event would be, pun intended, smashing. The lovely city of Oxford was chosen for the venue so it was even harder to say no to such a chance to learn and meet.
