 "La clameur Open-source dans l'eZ Ecosystem" / "The Open-source roar within the eZ Ecosystem"
 By Nicolas Pastorino, Director Community at eZ Systems

  The eZ Publish Community has manifestly solidified since the opening to contributions on eZ Publish's kernel. This new, growing open-innovation activity, along with the intense creation of extensions, re-enforced the open-source character of the eZ Community. This talk will give you a snapshot of what our Community is achieving communally today, and will expose the ways to get involved, today and in the future, in this large Open-source project.

 "eZ Publish Nextgen, la révolution des couches" / "Knock knock, who's there ? The future"
 By Bertrand Dunogier, Lead Engineer of extensions at eZ Systems & Jérôme Vieilledent, Software Engineer at eZ Systems 

  Any piece of software can only be as good as its foundations. To rise as high as we need it to, we decided eZ Publish needed new ones. Today, we will tell you how these are architectured, and give you a glimpse of their possibilities.

 "Tour d'horizon des mauvaises & surtout bonnes pratiques eZ Publish" / "Overview of wrong, and above all good eZ Publish practices"
 By Gilles Guirand, Technology Director at Kaliop

 2011 is a major turning point for eZ Publish's Ecosystem. Many live platforms end their life-cycle, and the temptation to consider alternatives exists. Particularly when wrong practices and criticism have accumulated in the past years : hard to install ? Hard to grasp ? Steep learning-curve ? Limited Community ? Dramatic response times ?
Paradoxically, eZ Publish has never been as strong as today on these subjects ! This talk will try to show you how to do it, what the wrong practices, and above all good practices are, and how to evaluate the quality of a project.

 16:15 - 16:45

  "Retour d'expérience sur l'industrialisation des déploiements des sites Web Vélos en Libre Service (VLS) / Feedback on the deployment automation of the web platform for the Self service bike system."
 By Nicolas Steinmetz, Web Team Leader at JCDecaux

 Paris, Brisbane, Toyama, Marseille ou encore Dublin, those towns, with 18 others, have a Self Service Bike System. Feedback on 5 years of deployment of a shared applicative framework and a shared web infrastructure.

 16:45 - 17:15  [Slides]

 "Au delà d'Apache / Beyond Apache"
 By Mathieu Lecarme, R&D developer at AF83.

 PHP is no more Apache. PHP can now be used in a modern context, with better performance, less admin stress, scaling up and down. Thanks PHP-FPM.
