Here is a small video summary of last year's edition, in Paris :
Practically, and answering to the main request from last year's participants, we took the all-in-one-place way, gathering all attendees in the Radisson Blu Hotel. This allows for being together and share during the day, but not only. Evenings and nights usually are hyperactive, informal exchange moments for various topics around the product, development and engineering experiences, hacking, business, potential collaborations. eZ decided to make this extended contact easy by proposing 2 different packages :
A “package”, or “ticket” comprises :
Packages are proposed for 1 to 3 nights, depending on how much fun you are planning on having. Concerning expenses, here is the sliding scale pricing proposed :
|Package + night(s)||
|SINGLE Package for 1 night||€519||€549||€579|
|SINGLE Package for 2 nights||€649||€689||€719|
|SINGLE Package for 3 nights||€789||€829||€869|
|DOUBLE Package for 1 night||€919||€969||€1019|
|DOUBLE Package for 2 nights||€1069||€1129||€1189|
|DOUBLE Package for 3 nights||€1219||€1289||€1359|
