I told you in my last blog post that there would be new information about the UnConference soon. Here it comes, the website is now online. Read on.

Note: you will have the chance to discover a website entirely created with eZ Publish 5.  Yes, Sylvain, our Community Engineer has taken the step to get eZ Publish 5 ready. He worked hard to make you happy, I hope you will be!




The program

We decided to offer you a practical experience with eZ Publish 5 and hands-on workshops so you can go back home with your first eZ Publish 5 adventure fresh in your mind, golden eZ 5 Knowledge nuggets. During those 3 days, the eZ engineering team, creators of eZ Publish 5, will be running workshops on eZ Publish 5 basics, backwards-compatibility, REST & PHP APIs. We will also have the chance to have Hugo Hamon, Symfony certified trainer, holding a session on Symfony Basics. 

You understood that we want you to have ‘la crème de la crème” to build your knowledge with eZ Publish 5. The eZ Product Management team will be there to talk about the direction we’re taking with our new eZ Publish 5.x, present the roadmap, and the vision of eZ Publish 5's evolution.

There will then be 2 full days of workshops around the eZ Publish 5 theme, animated by specialists, ranging from "how to install eZ Publish 5", to “how is the backward compatibility with eZ Publish 4.x working". The motto is "Hands-on, Concrete take-aways, Rigor and Fun".

And we will also have the UnConference sessions and the magnificents flash talks (more on those topics in a later blog post).


The venue

As I was telling you in my last blog, we will organize the UnConference in the lighthouse of Palavas-les-flots. This is a symbolic venue for eZ Publish, as we’re conscious that eZ Publish 5 might feel like a tough cookie for some of you. It is certainly not. So, the venue has been chosen to stick to the main focus: guide you and help you to find your way to eZ Publish 5 awesomeness.

Palavas-les-flots is a small and lovely city on the Mediterranean coast. It will be the perfect place for all of you to discover or re-discover eZ Publish 5 in a relaxed (and sunny) atmosphere.



The fun part of it?

More to come on the event "add-ons", evenings, outings....but the only thing we can tell you so far, is that this will be legen....(wait for it)...dary!

What about accommodation?

Palavas-les-Flots being a small town, I would advise to book your room early enough.

Here is a list of places in Palavas :

Not so close of the venue, but on the beach :

You also have the possibility to stay in a hotel in Montpellier and take the public transportation to there.

More information in later blog posts, but in the meanwhile, you can still register to the UnConference Newsletter on our website. And don’t hesitate to spread the word on twitter (hashtag: #ezuncon) or on Google +.

Stay tuned!
