First of all, let me (and the Community team) wish you a fantastic new year!

You might have sensed it end of last year, eZ Community is changing. That makes me say that 2013 will be the beginning of a new era. Why? Read on.


First, a look back on my first 6 months

In the last months of 2012, we have tried to gear up the Community. First of all, my arrival, as a Community Marketing Manager would be the start (for me of course ;)). Nicolas could easily identify the growing need for care of the eZ Community, leading to a simple decision : the one-man-army paradigm is not working anymore!
We have also organized the first eZ Community UnConference. With this new format, we tried to best suit the needs of individuals representing the Community. We wanted to give you, members of the Community, the opportunity to ask, share, exchange ideas live and finally meet those people from around the world who share your passion for eZ Publish.
And finally, last but not least, the new partner program was launched, refining the Community Partner level by creating two levels out of it: Registered and Ready.


Now, what’s cooking for 2013?

I know, most of you want to see what will be the new Community actions in 2013. You’re impatient to know, I can feel it... Good, because, we’re impatient to reveal :)

Our very first action is the launch of our eZ Community Shop.
You are proud of being a member of eZ Community and you want to say it to the world? Then, check out our products on our eZ Community Zazzle shop. You can drink the eZ way, be dressed the eZ way and even call the eZ way.  Ain't that beautiful?

And of course, you wonder what is behind those categories? Your are really curious, aren’t you? Ok, ok, then, check it here!
Of course, it’s not yet perfect. For that, we need you again (what would we do without you, right?). Any idea or suggestion on the products, design, wording,... are more than welcome! Don’t hesitate to drop us a line or two (or a whole book if you want) in the dedicated forum or at community [a] .
We also have the ambition to renew and improve the UnConference in the first half of the year.  We love our Community and we want something great and funny while still learning about eZ Publish of course. Ideas and plans are still cooking and we will come back soon with news about that.


A Hint Of Community in Business

While waiting for the UnConference, there is the eZ Summit in Cologne. The Summit being more business oriented, there won’t be a whole track dedicated to technology-related subjects, but there will be many bigger partners and business clients. There will also be an Awards ceremony where one Community award will be allocated to a member of the Community. This eZ Award has been created in order to recognize the very talented Community Members having had a direct influence on the eZ Publish Platform’s evolution, core of eZ’s product portfolio.  
This is it for the moment. But stay tuned as there might be more news and surprises soon!
